Erik ten Hag says Manchester United must "do everything" to reward the loyalty of the "best fans in the world" by winning the FA Cup following their worst finish to a Premier League season.

Although United won 2-0 at Brighton on Sunday's final day of the campaign, that was only good enough for eighth place - their worst position at the end of a season since they came 13th under celebrated manager Alex Ferguson in 1990.

Hopes of qualifying for Europe next season now rest on United beating Manchester City in next weekend's FA Cup final.

United manager Ten Hag thanked United's supporters for their backing. "We have the best fans in the world and I mean this," said Ten Hag, whose squad have been blighted by injuries this season.

"I have never had this experience when you have a season like us, which is by far not good enough, that the supporters are with us."

The 54-year-old added: "They are with us in the bad season and in bad times they are there. I think also they know why the bad times are there. But we have to pay them back and we have to do everything to give them a trophy next week."
