Erik ten Hag took some positive points from the victory against Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
Manchester United came out ahead 1-0 in a very close game.
The Red Devils, however, needed to win by two goals to top their group.
They will now face an additional draw against the teams falling out of the UEFA Champions League.
Ten Hag will be disappointed that his team was unable to score another goal.
In his post-match interview, he stated:
“We are disappointed.”
“We want to always be number one, and when we’re not, we get disappointed, but there were also some positives, and we have to get them out of here as well.”
“You don’t always get what you deserve in football.”
“First game a penalty that was not a penalty. Today we won, I’m happy with that and a few other things”.
The United manager highlighted some positive aspects of the game.
“The performance of Garnacho, Donny [van de Beek] back in the team.”
“I think we scored a very good goal with Garnacho and also some good chances in the first half, but of course we are disappointed that we didn’t score two.”
“You don’t always get what you deserve!”
Erik ten Hag delivered his very honest assessment of the night’s events in San Sebastian on Thursday night…
