Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has penned an open letter to the fans of the club following their victory over Newcastle United at Wembley on Sunday, February 26.
On Sunday night, the Dutchman guided United to their first trophy in six years by winning the Carabao Cup, one of their last victories over Newcastle and a trophy they won back in 2017.
More significantly, the 53-year-old has thoroughly won over the Old Trafford faithful not only via his accomplishments but also by his approach to football, man management, and general attitude towards the job.
He began: “While praising the supporters for their support both inside Wembley and throughout the world, ten Hag made it clear that this is just the beginning as he sent his letter on Monday morning, less than 24 hours after winning the League Cup.
“When I arrived at the club, we spoke about the challenge and importance of reuniting this group of players with our amazing fans.
“Believe me, this squad knows exactly how important you are. The bond between the supporters and the team is there for everyone to see and what we experienced together yesterday will only further strengthen that bond.
“The atmosphere generated by those of you at Wembley was incredible. From the first minute until the last you were there with us, driving the team on, supporting and encouraging them to get over the line to bring the trophy back to Manchester.
“For those of you who couldn’t be there, we felt your support before, during and after the game. Know that each and every one of you will always play your part in this team being successful.
“I am proud of my players and staff for their preparation and performances. Yesterday, we saw the required desire, spirit and determination that we must demand of everyone who represents Manchester United.
“We set ourselves high standards every day. At Wembley we met those demands and got the reward of our first trophy together.
We know the importance of silverware throughout the history of this great club. We are so happy to bring the trophy back to Old Trafford but we are by no means satisfied and we will not stop here.
“Together we have experienced the feeling of what it means to win together for Manchester United. It is truly magnificent and will only make each of us hungrier for more success.
“This group has made great strides in the last few months but there is still a lot more to come. I can assure you that everyone at Carrington will be working constantly because we know that this club and you, our supporters, deserve more great days like this,” he ended.
Manchester United are also competing for three other titles including the UEFA Europa League, FA Cup and Premier League, where they lie third on the league log.
