The manager of Manchester United, Eric ten Haag stated that he is proud and that his team by winning the English FA Cup against Manchester City he showed that he can play well and win when all the players are available.

– Congratulations to the team. You saw how we can play when we have all the footballers in the team. Some of them were not even ready to play, but they played very well. I have been saying this all year – when the players are ready, we can play good football. We have a really good game against the best team in the world - Ten Haag said after the match, "BBC" reported.

The players of Manchester United at "Wembley" won the 13th FA Cup in the club's history, after defeating the city rival, the current champion Manchester City with 2:1 in the final.

– It's a local rivalry and it's much more important when you're playing against a team from your hometown. But for us it was not only that, it was to prove something after numerous failures. The team showed a lot of resilience and I am proud - said Ten Haag.

In the previous days, the media speculated that Ten Haag would be fired, and he was asked about it.

- I don't know. The only thing I do is prepare the team, develop it. It's a project for me. When I arrived, I can tell it was a mess. In football, everything is about winning trophies. I want us to play the best football, dynamic football, attacking football, but you have to win and win titles. This was our opportunity and we succeeded. I am really very proud of the players - said Ten Haag.

After this trophy, United will play in the Europa League next season, and through the Premier League, they failed to fight for a place in the European competitions because they took the eighth place in the table. Chelsea will play in the Conference League, where Newcastle, who was left without participation in Europe, was supposed to go.
