Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Ten Hag spoke about his meeting with the Manchester United icon.
‘He was there and he is a happy man tonight,’ he said. ‘The dinner that shows we are good and it shows he is really involved in this club and really committed.

For a lot of the United team, this is the first piece of silverware they have won for the club and for some players, such as Alejandro Garnacho and Wout Weghorst, it is the first of their professional careers.
Garnacho made the most of the cup final win and the teenager posed for a picture kissing the Carabao Cup trophy as it donned the red of Manchester United.

The England international is embarking on legendary status at the club and United fans will love seeing pictures of him celebrating the first trophy of Ten Hag’s reign.
However, fans will be hoping that there is not such a big gap before the club pick up their next trophy.
The Red Devils’ next game is an FA Cup clash against West Ham and it gives the side a chance to progress in another cup competition.
