Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has said stubbornness made him accept the job despite knowing it “may have been a risk.
Ten Hag arrived at Old Trafford from Ajax last summer.
On Sunday, he led the Red Devils to their first trophy in six years, following a 2-0 win over Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final.
In the last seven months, Ten Hag has had to make tough decisions, including showing Cristiano Ronaldo the door at Old Trafford and dropping club captain Harry Maguire from his starting XI.
But he has also improved the culture at the club.
“Maybe it was a risk [to take this job], but I am a little bit stubborn." I just love United.
“When I see our shirts, when I see the boundary with the fans, when I see Old Trafford, when I see the legacy Sir Alex Ferguson left and so many big players that were developed in United teams, it makes a big impression."
“When this opportunity came, I thought this was the right club for me,” Ten Hag said.
