In a viral video, Manchester United manager Erik ten Haag is seen dancing with his players Anthony and Lisandro Martinez after the team’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle United to win the Carabao Cup on Sunday, ending a long trophy run drought.
Hague was seen doing a touch dance, and then the three of them embraced. “The boys are doing a little dance there, sir. Not bad actually to be fair!” said Roy Keane speaking to Sky Sports.

Manchester United dashed Newcastle United’s hopes of winning a first domestic trophy in almost 70 years with a clinical victory at Wembley.
Casemiro’s late first-half goals and Sven Botman’s own goal silenced the hordes of Newcastle fans who gathered in the capital as Manchester United lifted the trophy for a sixth time.

While most of the build-up was about Newcastle’s first appearance in a major final since 1999, it was Erik Ten Hag’s revived United who won the club’s first silverware since winning the Europa League under Jose Mourinho in 2017.
There was little between the two sides in a scrappy first half, but England’s first silverware of the season was effectively decided in the space of six minutes before half-time.
First, Brazil’s Casemiro met Luke Shaw’s superb 33rd-minute free-kick to head beyond Loris Karius, and six minutes later Newcastle were left reeling when Marcus Rashford’s effort was deflected into his own goal by Bothman.
Blows to their fans in the second half Newcastle rose into action and at times teased United with a flurry of looks, but their wait for a trophy continues.
