Nottingham Forest will host Manchester United in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final tonight, while Erik ten Hag has set his sights on ending the Old Trafford club’s six-year trophy drought.
United are a resurgent force under the Dutchman, having won nine games in a row before being retained at Crystal Palace and losing to Premier League leaders Arsenal last week.
“It’s the best feeling you can have when you win a trophy,” said Ten Hag. “I’ve been lucky enough to win some trophies in my career and that’s great, especially for the fans.
“It’s so great and I think the fans here have some experience, especially the older ones. But now it’s a period when Manchester United didn’t win trophies and it’s been too long. We are aware of that fact and we have to do anything to bring in a trophy.”
