Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho came off the bench to score the match-winning goal in the 2-1 victory over Fulham.
Ten Hag told Sky Sports: “It’s a big skill (confidence/arrogance) that he has. But it’s always finding the balance. He can perform under stress and he came in and performed well like he did on Thursday.”
On Manchester United’s season so far, Ten Hag added: “I think we have a base. We’re going in the right direction, the culture has changed. The attitude has changed and that’s good. We have also improved. We have got a better mentality and you saw that today with the winner in the last minute.
“We are now united, we have togetherness. The dressing room, the staff, the directors, the whole club and the fans. I’m really happy with that development.”
