United's performance in the first half did little to honor Sir Bobby Charlton - Erik ten Hag

However, goals from Scott McTominay and Diogo Dalot clinched Manchester United's triumph in honor of club hero Charlton.

Erik ten Hag admitted Manchester United's 2-1 triumph over Sheffield United in the first half was not an appropriate tribute to Sir Bobby Charlton.

United are in mourning for one of their greatest ever players, Sir Bobby Charlton

Scott McTominay and Diogo Dalot ensured they commemorated him with victory.

But Ten Hag's team was a far cry from the one that Charlton famously guided to European Cup triumph in 1968

Ten Hag said: “We are happy we did that, we have to pay attention and do it in a good way"

“But of course the news arrived and we are very sad and our thoughts are with his family and especially his wife Lady Norma"

“I heard some players got some inspiration from it and they wanted a win to mark it."

“We were too direct, no good organisation, second half we made some changes and you saw we got better"

“We controlled the game and created the chances and then finally we deserved the win and it was a beautiful goal.”
