Manchester United last won a trophy under Jose Mourinho in 2017. While those League Cup and Europa League wins felt like that team’s limit, glory at Wembley for Erik ten Hag at the end of February feels as though it will be the precursor to much more.

“I’ve said it before that it is too long that this club didn’t win a trophy and it belongs to this club to win trophies so we have to get back on track,” Ten Hag said ahead of the game, reflecting on a Manchester United trophy drought which stretches back to the summer of 2017, when they won the Europa League. It’s 2,072 days since United last tasted silverware. It really is about time.

Jose Mourinho had led United to League Cup glory earlier in the 2016-17 season, and also classed the Charity Shield as a further gong in what may be the worst possible treble.

“In a bad season, in a season where sometimes I felt my team was the worst team in the world, where I felt I was the worst manager in the world, we managed to win three trophies,” Mourinho said after the 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final.
