Erik ten Hag warns Man Utd players there is no room for ‘laziness’ after cup win

Victorious Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag warned his players they cannot afford to become “lazy” if they are to build upon the club’s first trophy in six years. Sunday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup final victory over Newcastle at Wembley ended United’s silverware drought and gave them something to show for the improvement they have made under the Dutchman. For Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe, it proved a sobering afternoon as his side failed to take their chances and were punished for their frailty at the back. However, he insists the hurt will fuel the Magpies’ future quest to end their 54-year wait for tangible success.
