- Since 2018, Manchester United has not won a trophy.
- Under Erik ten Hag, United has made significant progress.
- As the League Cup semi-finals approached, the manager kept things grounded.
Under the guidance of manager Erik ten Hag, who is currently in his first season, Manchester United has significantly improved. United is now the only English club still playing in four different competitions under the former Ajax manager. They are scheduled to play Nottingham Forests in the League Cup semifinals and are currently in third place in the Premier League.
Under ten Hag, who was known for his legendary run with Ajax in the Champions League, United has not won a single title since 2017.
Prior to Wednesday’s journey to Forest, Ten Hag told reporters, “It’s about that, it’s about winning trophies.”
The manager maintained his composure, saying, “We have a good opportunity, but you have to go from game to game.”
“Now that we are playing Forest over two games, we will focus on leg one. Don’t think further ahead as it will only distract,” Ten Hag said.
Diogo Dalot, Jadon Sancho, and Anthony Martial, according to the Dutchman, won’t be allowed to play, but Casemiro will be back after serving a one-match league ban.
Old Trafford will host the second match on February 1.
