London, Feb. 27 (BNA): In just 12 months, Manchester United have gone from jeers to cheers, according to the Associated Press.
Celebrations for Sunday’s League Cup final at Wembley came a year to the day since Old Trafford was booed after a goalless draw at lowly Watford.
The 20-time England champions went on to post their worst season in the Premier League and finished 35 points clear of champions Manchester City.
Few could have predicted such a quick turnaround when new manager Erik ten Hag was signed last summer.
But the man who led Ajax to three Dutch titles in four seasons has already put United back on winning ways, ending a six-year title drought and keeping the club fighting on three more fronts in the closing months of the season.
Although unlikely to make the quadruple, United remain contentious in all domestic competitions and have progressed to the last 16 of the Europa League after a memorable victory last week against La Liga leaders Barcelona.
