However, he also highlighted several aspects that disappointed him.

"There are a lot of positive things - the resilience to come back after going behind twice," said Ten Hag as quoted by The Mirror. "But there is also a negative side. We gave up and that can't happen. That's unacceptable, we have to learn from this. But I'm happy with this win and we have to keep going.” he stressed.
