Manchester United Coach Erik Ten Hag has expressed his desire to make history with the Club after he guided United to its first silverware since 2017.

Manchester United secured their first major trophy for six years with a deserved 2-0 win against Newcastle in the League Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.

Quick first half goals from Casemiro and an own goal from Sven Botman were enough to give Erik Ten Hag’s side the deserved win despite Newcastle’s second-half pressure.  

The Dutchman expressed his love for the club and desire to make his own history, saying stubbornness saw him accept the Manchester United job despite knowing that it was a risk.

 “We are still at the start of restoring Manchester United to where we belong — winning trophies.”

“Maybe it was a risk [to take this job] but I am a little bit stubborn. I just love United,” he said. “When I see our shirts, when I see the boundary with the fans, when I see Old Trafford, when I see the legacy Sir Alex [Ferguson] left and so many big players that were developed in United teams it makes a big impression.

“We want to do the same, this team wants to make its own history and its own legacy. When this opportunity came I thought this was the right club for me.”

With just seven months into his debut season after quickly turning their form around following a worrying start, Erik Ten Hag has quickly become people’s favorite as far as leading United to greater heights is concerned.

United arrived at Wembley having lost just once in their previous 20 games, sitting third in the Premier League and still within sight of the title race.

A midweek victory over Barcelona in the Europa League followed by cup win just three days later  proves United are on the right track.
