Erik ten Hag has revealed what he told supporters in the Stretford End after the boss was seen gesturing to fans following his side’s 3-0 win against at home.

The Red Devils moved to within five points of leaders Arsenal after a brace from and a goal from saw United see off Leicester.

Though the scoreline suggested the win was comfortable, it was anything but for United after a dominant first-half display from the Foxes.

Ten Hag described his side’s performance in the first half as ‘rubbish’ but acknowledged that, with his team playing every three days, there’s bound to be some stodgy performers.

The win means United start a crucial seven-day period of matches with a victory.

Before taking on Newcastle United at Wembley next Sunday, United have the small task of taking on Barcelona in a second leg Europa League play-off at Old Trafford this Thursday.

With the aggregate score at 2-2, United will need to squeeze out every advantage they have to make it through to the last-16.

And Ten Hag has revealed that he appealed to United supporters to make the difference this Thursday as he made his way off the field.

Asked what he told supporters, Ten Hag replied: ‘I said: “Come Thursday, it’s a big game, make sure you are there and we beat Barcelona together”‘
