Erik ten Hag has now praised his Manchester United team after the win against Liverpool at Old Trafford, MySportDab reports.
Ten Hag went into the match against Liverpool without a win after two matches in the Premier League.
The Dutch Coach made a big decision of putting Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire on the bench.
Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford both scored to give Manchester United some control before Mo Salah scored a late goal for Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are currently in sixteenth position on the Premier League table with two points.
After the match, Ten Hag was very excited about the win and used a shocking word.
‘For me it was all about the right attitude and not just tactics,’ Ten Hag said.
‘They showed the right communication, fighting spirit and yes we can f***ing play some good football.
‘I wanted a good response and that’s why am happy with the performance. We have good players but only a team that works together will succeed.
‘I told them: “You must act, as a team, be brave in helping each other”.
‘I was happy today but now we must bring it every game. It starts once again with the right attitude.’
Liverpool were without nine key players due to injury and suspension but failed to do much in the match at Old Trafford.
After Jadon Sancho’s goal in the first half, James Milner and Virgil van Dijk got into an heated discussion about why the defender failed to close him down.
