When Erik ten Hag gave his post-season address at full time at Old Trafford after their 3-2 victory over Newcastle, some fans heckled him.

In their final home game of the season, United secured all three points, and they now want to guarantee European football for the upcoming campaign.

Kieran Trippier played Kobbie Mainoo onside, and he scored a superb goal inside the box to open the score.

After a strong response, Anthony Gordon’s close-range goal gave Newcastle the equalizer.

Then, Amad Diallo scored his first-ever Premier League goal and put the home team ahead with an incredible first-time finish on his weak foot.

Just two minutes after coming off the bench, United’s third goal was scored by substitute Rasmus Hojlund. In the end, Erik ten Hag’s team prevailed 3-2 despite Lewis Hall’s last-minute fright.

Ten Hag assembled his men in the middle of the Old Trafford field after the full-time whistle, took a microphone, and addressed the United supporters.

After a season that was undoubtedly not a step forward for the team, the crowd greeted the Dutchman with both jeers and applause as he emphasized the value of the fans’ support.

“I want to thank you all for the brilliant support during the season,” he said.

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

Ten Hag also stressed the importance of the FA Cup final at Wembley against Man City during the speech.

He added: “The season is not over yet. We go to Wembley and I promise you those players will give everything to bring the FA Cup to Old Trafford!”
