 Ten Hag: Man United quadruple talk 'only for the fans'

Erik Ten Hag says the talks over Man United possibly completing a quadruple this season is only “for the fans.”

The EFL Cup has already been clinched while United remain in both the FA Cup and Europa League. They are also a strong contender in the Premier League title race, sitting eight points behind current leaders Arsenal, but Ten Hag says he has not even thought about the prospect of securing all four trophies. 

"That is for fans," he said at a news conference on Tuesday.

"We have to focus on the next game and that is the only thing we are doing.

"Us, we are talking for 10 minutes and I didn't hear the words West Ham United. I think it was the press conference for West Ham United so it's only about this we have to talk about.

"We don't have to talk about trophies. We have to talk about West Ham United, that is the game tomorrow."

Erik Ten Hag won his maiden championship as Man Utd boss with a clinical 2-0 win over Newcastle in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final. If the Red devils manage to reach the final of both the FA Cup and Europa League, they will end up playing 65 matches this season. The jam-packed schedule saw Ten Hag’s team play eight ties in February but the Dutchman believes the hectic fixture list is positive rather than negative. 

"In my experience in Ajax, when we dropped out of Europe the levels went down and when you are in it gives energy," said Ten Hag.

"Until now, we have managed it [the schedule] quite well and I think we can do it also until the end of the season. Except Anthony Martial, the availability from all the players is there."

Martial has missed the last seven ties due to a hip injury and is expected to stay on the sidelines for Wednesday’s FA Cup clash against West Ham.
