Erik ten Hag has sent a strong message to Manchester United supporters after the Red Devils’ victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, May 15.

It was Manchester United’s last home game of the 2023/2024 campaign as the Reds entered the match knowing that a win would grant them a chance of finishing in the European qualification position in the English Premier League.

However, after an impressive start from Newcastle United, Manchester United capitalized on their chances as they took the lead on the half-hour mark as Kobbie Mainoo slotted the ball impressively past the visitors’ goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

Anthony Gordon brought Newcastle level shortly after the second half began, but Amad Dialo’s powerful strike put the home team ahead in the 57th minute of play.

Afterward, Rasmus Hojlund who came on as a substitute looked to cement all three points for Ten Hag’s side with six minutes additional time. Meanwhile, a brilliant stoppage-time goal from Lewis Hall took Newcastle closer to securing a point but was too late for Eddie Howe’s side as the final whistle went up.

After the match, Man United boss Erik ten Hag took the microphone in the center circle of the stadium to address the crowd at Old Trafford, as his tradition after the final home game of the season.

The former Ajax manager paid tribute to United’s fans. He declared that the players will give everything they can to win the Emirates FA Cup, with the final against Manchester City on May 25.

The Dutchman said; “On behalf of the players, the staff, and myself, I’d like to thank you all for the brilliant support during the season.”

“As you know, it wasn’t an easy season, but one thing remained constant, and that was the backing of you for the team.”

“But this season is not over yet. First, at Brighton, we go for three points again, and then we go to Wembley.”

“I promise you that those players will give everything. Everything to end it good, to win the cup and bring it to Old Trafford.”

He added; “And we are sure that you will be there, supporting us. Thank you for being the best supporters in the world. Thank you!”

Notably, the majority of the Old Trafford fans applauded the manager, however, certain sections were heard booing the head coach, although it is unclear whether they were the home supporters.

In addition, the 54-year-old manager’s future in Manchester looks uncertain as various reports have declared that the club could part ways with him in the summer.

The Old Trafford outfit have been linked with a move to several notable managers including Brentford’s Thomas Frank and possibly outgoing Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel.

What’s next for Manchester United?

Erik ten Hag’s men will lock horns against Brighton in their final English Premier League match away from home on Sunday, May 19, before meeting Pep Guardiola’s Man City at Wembley on May 25.
