Erik ten Hag on Post Match Interview
Erik ten Hag said, “Today, we played two halves, an impressive game,” said Ten Hag afterwards. “Big credit to the team.” In particular, he was pleased with the success that United had in behind Villa’s high line. “It was definitely one of our ideas for this game,” he added.
“The lads did great with that organisation, attacking-wise. It could have been better. It can always be better. It was not always perfect, we had to score more, we know that, but finally, it was a success.”
It was Fernandes who scored the decisive goal, celebrating in front of the Aston Villa supporters who had been deriding him with their chants. It has been the perfect response to the recent criticism of the Portuguese. “He is so tough,” said the United boss.
“A couple of weeks ago there were questions about his captaincy, which was crazy because he is such a big leader. He leads by example, gives so much energy to the team, so much desire and determination. If you want to win games and trophies, you need such players.”
Asked about the protests from Manchester United supporters urging the Glazer family to sell the club, Ten Hag said: “We felt really that the fans were behind us. We have to focus to be successful because that is what the fans expect and can expect. I’m sure when we get performances like we do all season, and the fans are behind us, there is a lot of energy and a strong bond between the fans and the players.”
Unai Emery on Post Match Interview
Unai Emery said, “Today, a little bit disappointed. A little. United deserved to win but at 1-0 you can, in 90 minutes, get in the box and score one goal. But we have to reduce the distance from them to us, to take more opportunities to win here. But I am happy in our process.
“In the first half today, we did not play good, we did not feel good. In the second half, we improved but it was not enough. In the end, after we analyse this match, we can take more information but I think we can do better.”
Villa are still in the European places but their advantage over Brighton is only two points and the Seagulls have three games in hand. On the other hand, there is still a chance Villa can finish above Liverpool or Tottenham – they play all three in their final three games.
“Firstly, we have to win our matches, we have to win points. Of course, there are other teams, Liverpool, Tottenham, Brighton and Brentford. We will have the possibility to win matches, but we are only going to think about the next match against Wolves.
“Brighton have [played] three matches less than us. It is not normal, the circumstances, but it is like that. We are going to play the last match against Brighton. If we get to this match with the possibility of playing in Europe, that would be fantastic.
“It is difficult if you go for top 10. It is really difficult if you go for the European places because you have to win, win and win. They are tough matches we are going to face but we are ready to do it and excited by the opportunity.”
