Ten Hag has been speaking to MUTV after the game. ‘I am satisfied today. It was a team with a great sprit and we know we are just getting started,’ he said.
‘We made some mistakes in the press, we conceded some chances, but we created a lot.
‘We have to work hard to cut out the mistakes but of course we are happy.
