Erik Hag Delights In Ending Trophy Drought With Efl Cup Win. Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, declared that his team “stands for trophies” following the conclusion of their six-year trophy drought against Newcastle in the EFL Cup at Wembley.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson, a legendary manager, left in 2013, United has gone through a challenging, barren time under a succession of managers.
But, Ten Hag stands out from the competition by getting a previously disjointed bunch to execute consistently. Ten Hag praised the Red Devils’ winning spirit after Casemiro and a Sven Botman own goal gave them the victory.
Ten Hag replied, “I just want to win,” in response to Gary Neville’s inquiry on Sky Sports about whether he had been surprised by how quickly his team had come together.
Together [are] also the fans, [it’s] really surprising how the fans stay, and there’s a real hunger and a desire for trophies because Man United stands for trophies, as we invested from the beginning of the season with the staff, who did an incredible job, and with the players.
Potter accepts “all responsibility” for Chelsea’s dismal performance, saying “You can’t rely on support forever.”
Following Manchester United’s victory over Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, the assistant managers of Manchester United, Mitchell van der Gaag (L) and Steve McClaren, celebrate with the trophy.

Bruno Fernandes, the team’s midfielder and captain, echoed Ten Hag’s sentiments and made it very clear that this first trophy under Ten Hag should not be an exception.
It’s a wonderful feeling, Fernandes remarked. “We have been looking forward to this time. We, the supporters and clubs collectively, finally receive our trophy, which I believe is well-deserved. The first trophy of the year was won during an incredible stretch, but we still want more. For this club, it is not enough; we need more because our standards call for it. I wanted to take home trophies, and in the end, we succeeded. I’m content, but I still desire more. I desire much more.
Beaten At the end of the game, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe presented a strikingly despondent image, emphasizing the need to “bridge the gap” to the top English teams.
Howe told BBC Radio 5 Live, “I thought we played well individually and as a team, but it just didn’t happen in the box and we need to work on that.
