‘We’ll be stronger next season’

Manchester United forward Antony has assured fans that the Reds will be back ‘even stronger’ next season.

Though unable to play his part in the final due to injury, the Brazilian expressed his pride for his team-mates on social media following the narrow 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at Wembley Stadium. 

“Proud of this team,” he wrote. “A very intense season. We were champions [of the League Cup], we are back in the Champions League. 

“We will be even stronger next season. Proud to be United!”

Fellow forward Alejandro Garnacho, who was electric off the bench in the final, echoed a similar sentiment on Instagram. 

“I am broken,” our no.49 began. “People who know me know how obsessed I am with winning and today it couldn’t be. 
“Probably one of the hardest days of my life, we will get up again because we are Manchester United.

“God has taught me never to give up and I promise to the fans that we will bring joy to you very soon.” 

Ten Hag satisfied with United’s season


The 2022/23 campaign may not have ended on a high, but the boss feels we’ve made great strides.

Marcus Rashford says he takes positives from the ‘progress’ the Reds have made during our latest campaign and is urging United to keep moving forward. 

“This game meant everything to us today, but it wasn’t meant to be,” he wrote. 

“It’s clear to see progress has been made over the season, but we still have to keep improving and come back even stronger next season.”
The Reds have shown incredible character across the year, picking ourselves up after set-backs on more than one occasion, and Bruno Fernandes has assured fans that we will do so again. 

“Thanks for all the support during the season,” wrote our no.8. 

“We will bounce back as we always do.”
