‘They can play f***ing good football!’: Excited Erik ten Hag drops an F-BOMB live on Sky Sports as he hails Man United’s ‘attitude, fighting spirit and communication’ in 2-1 win over rivals Liverpool
- Erik ten Hag dropped the F-bomb after Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1
- He struggled to contain his excitement after his side’s impressive performance
- England duo Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford put the Red Devils 2-0 ahead
- Mohamed Salah clawed one back for Liverpool but United managed to hold on
Erik ten Hag hailed his reborn Manchester United team as they swept aside dismal Liverpool on a dramatic night at Old Trafford.
Winless as United manager after two opening Premier League defeats, Ten Hag made big calls by dropping Cristiano Ronaldo and captain Harry Maguire and was rewarded with a blistering performance from his team.
Goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford gave United control before Mo Salah grabbed a late Liverpool consolation.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are themselves marooned in sixteenth position with just two points.
Afterwards Ten Hag could hardly contain his emotion as he let fly with an unintentional expletive live on Sky Sports.
‘We can talk about tactics but it’s all about attitude,’ Ten Hag said. ‘There was communication, fighting spirit and they can f***ing play good football!

‘I wanted a different attitude and that’s what makes me satisfied. We have good players but if you are a good team, you will succeed. I said to them: “You have to act, be a team, be brave in giving each other options”.
‘I was happy with it but they have to bring it every game. It starts once again with the spirit.’
Liverpool were missing nine players through injury and suspension but were still desperately disappointing against a team they beat 9-0 on aggregate over two Premier League games last season.

Klopp – now enduring his worst start to a Liverpool season after two draws and a defeat – said afterwards: ‘We are very disappointed.
‘It was clear what United would do. They were more aggressive then us at the start, yes. It was the game they wanted to play. It was wild, up and down.
‘Apart from the final pass or decision, we then played like we should have played. We had a lot of moments in the box.
‘We don’t have any issues. Nobody is happy but that’s normal. It’s not nice to look at the league table.’
