According to Eric Ten Hag Manchester United’s manager in an interview after defeating NewCastle in the Carabao Cup final;
“Yet again this evening, they had the right spirit,” he told Sky Sports. “It’s a very good spirit, they act as a team and fight, give everything.
“It was not always the best football, but it was effective.
“Firstly, you have to win the first one [trophy]. We will get a lot of inspiration from this, but also, more confidence that we can do it.
“We are still in a start to restore Man United to where they belong, which is winning trophies and this is the first one.”
Manchester United ended their six-year trophy drought as they beat Newcastle 2-0 to win the Carabao Cup.
Casemiro scored the opener for Erik ten Hag’s side at Wembley and they doubled their lead before the break via a Sven Botman own goal.
It is their first piece of silverware since they won the Europa League under Jose Mourinho in 2017, and it could be the first trophy of a potential quadruple, with United still in the FA Cup, Europa League and still having an outside shot of winning the Premier League.
