Wout Weghorst has explained how much it meant to him when Manchester United won the Carabao Cup last month.
Weghorst joined United on a loan deal from Burnley in January and has helped the Red Devils win their first trophy in six years.
The 30-year-old was soaked in the celebrations after the full-time whistle. His emotional reaction went viral where he sat on the pitch for a moment to see fans celebrating the triumph.
In an interview with ManUtd.com, he said: “It was my first trophy. When we won it and the trophy was ours, I took a moment to enjoy it and I saw the crowd.
These are the moments you will remember, and that is why I did it. I have worked for my whole career to reach the top, top level in the world.
“For me, I notice now, our club – Manchester United – is definitely one of the biggest clubs in the world. I’m just proud and happy to be here.”
Manchester United can do a Wembley double
The Carabao Cup was a significant moment for this squad as they aim to get the glory days back to Man United.
The Red Devils are still strongly competing in the Europa League and the FA Cup.
They have an excellent chance to end the Premier League in the top four to bring Champions League football back to Old Trafford next season.
Weghorst has shown great determination to fight for the ball and is a pressing machine up at the top. His work rate is second to none.
He makes crucial runs to distract the defenders which opens up spaces for his teammates.
At the age of 30, he won his first silverware and will be hungry to add more to his resume before his loan spell ends.
United have made it to the FA Cup quarter-finals and will host Fulham tomorrow. Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion are the two other strong teams remaining in the competition.
They have a glorious opportunity to do a Wembley Stadiung double to kick off Erik ten Hag’s era at United.
