Ahead of the final at Wembley, Ten Hag was asked what has been the best message he's received from Ferguson in recent months.

He told Sky Sports:

”He is by doing [instead of using words]. I think he left a legacy and that is Manchester United stands for winning and a winning culture," he said.

"I think he's such a great example for all of us, for humanity, but for all of us around and in Manchester United, he's such a big example and we hope that we can make him proud on Sunday."

Ten Hag also was asked whether he will have more meetings with Ferguson in the coming months.

"We unfortunately don't have time for that because the time is too short."

The Dutchman said he is really excited to lead Manchester United as a manager at Wembley.

"It's a great moment I to go to Wembley. I think. It's a real theatre to play a game, to play a final. It's really exciting to go there. And of course if you go there, you want to win and it's a big day for us."
