Ten Hag: Maybe it was a risk but I just love Manchester United

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag believes that winning the Carabao Cup has justified his decision to leave a successful set-up at Ajax and move to Old Trafford 10 months ago.

Ten Hag said: “Maybe it was a risk but I just love United. So when I see our shirts, the boundary with the fans, when I see Old Trafford, the legacy like Sir Alex left, so many big players were developed in a United shirt and we want to do the same.

“This team wants to make its own history and when this opportunity came I thought it was the right club for me, I want to be part of it.

“It is one cup and it is February but it shows we are in the right direction. It has to be the inspiration to keep going and be happy for 24 hours, but not satisfied because satisfaction leads to laziness and then you don’t win trophies.”
