Weghorst grateful for Ten Hag support: 'It shows I am doing a good job'
Wout Weghorst feels he is "doing a good job" for Manchester United after becoming a regular under Erik ten Hag.
The Netherlands international has started all 18 of United's games since joining on loan from Burnley in January – only Bruno Fernandes has been selected as many times.
He has scored just two goals so far, while assisting three more, leading to questions being asked whether the 30-year-old is the best option up top for United.
However, having played his part in United's EFL Cup triumph and helped them advance in the FA Cup and Europa League, Weghorst is pleased with what he has achieved so far.
"That's a lot of matches and it shows the trust in me," Weghorst said when asked about the number of games he has started. "It also shows I am doing a good job for the team.
"That was the thing I wanted when I came here – to contribute and try and help the club to be successful, to win trophies.
"We have one now. We have two more to go with the Europa League and FA Cup, and we want to get as high as possible in the table and definitely reach the Champions League.
"So it just shows me that I am being part of it. And being part of us being successful and that appreciation, that’s a good thing."
United will take on Brighton and Hove Albion in next month's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, while Sevilla await in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
Weghorst played 70 minutes of last month's 2-0 EFL Cup final win against Newcastle United and led the way for shots (three) and aerial duels contested (seven), as well as assisting Marcus Rashford for United's second goal.
"The match against Newcastle at Wembley was a great experience. There was a lovely atmosphere in the stadium; it has something special," he said.
"We want to win trophies. The one we have now just showed us that we can do it again; we are all hungry for more, all of us."
Weghorst is currently away on international duty with the Netherlands, who face France in their opening Euro 2024 qualifier on Friday before hosting Gibraltar three days later.
