City have been crowned Premier League champions and United won the Carabao Cup earlier in the year.

It was the club’s first trophy since 2017, and Eriksen exclusively told talkSPORT how important it is to win silverware at Old Trafford.

He said: “It’s been a rollercoaster of a season, it’s been up and down all season but I think the aims and also the history of the club is trophies.

“That’s really what’s been pushed from day one, it’s been good to have one and obviously now we want the second one.”

When asked how it would feel to leave the club with more trophies on his list of accolades, he said: “The history of the club is silverware.

“They built that up for a long time, winning, winning, winning, and obviously it’s something that you have to do otherwise it’s not a success.

“It’ll be nice whatever happens after, legacy of winning a lot of trophies definitely.”

Eriksen signed for United in the same summer that saw Ten Hag arrive as boss following Ralf Rangnick’s departure.

They endured a slow start under the Dutchman but his management has led the club two two finals and a Premier League top four finish.

Eriksen believes his impact on the team has been a success as they eye their second trophy of the season this weekend.

He said: “I didn’t know what was happening before, I can only say what it was like when I came. I think he brought in a lot of structure, he had a lot of ideas and really follow a lot of his ideas, yeah we have done.

“I think in the beginning it was a bit on and off and then later on when we really tried to connect with his ideas, I think it’s been a success.

“As you can see we’re playing good football and I don’t think there’s anyone having a tough time.”

United will be looking to win the FA Cup for the first time since 2016 on Saturday in the competition’s first ever all-Manchester final.
