Ten Hag hails Utd attitude after win

Erik ten Hag hopes United answered questions over their character as they followed Sunday’s 7-0 loss at Liverpool with a 4-1 home defeat of Real Betis.

The Red Devils upped the tempo after the break to strike three more times and leave them overwhelming favourites to reach the Europa League quarter-finals.

Boss Ten Hag told BT Sport: We played a very good game in both halves and by half-time we should have been up 3-0.

But then it’s 1-1, one mistake and we get punished for it. But I thought we played well, in the second half especially.

“[Overall] 4-1, good goals, good performance and give something to the fans. They give us something back as well because they are behind us and we are very grateful after Sunday.

“It was a good attitude from the start, we were on the front foot, we were good on the ball, finding spare men in midfield. They made good switches, they made good runs behind and created a lot of chances. I’m happy today.

“It’s always how a team reacts after a setback – you see it once again, this is not the first time this season. Already it’s been five or six times, we can reset and bounce back. This team has character so it is a compliment to the team.”
