Erik ten Hag said on Saturday his Manchester United team are "broken" and "disappointed" after their FA Cup final defeat to bitter rivals Manchester City but he is proud of his men.

City captain Ilkay Gundogan scored the fastest goal in an FA Cup final, with just 12 seconds on the clock at Wembley.

Bruno Fernandes levelled from the penalty spot but Gundogan struck again early in the second half and the game ended 2-1.

"We are broken, disappointed of course, but I said I am proud of my team," Ten Hag told the BBC.

"We did very well, we conceded two soft goals but we were in the game. There was a great spirit and very good organisation."

He added: "This team showed resilience, character and personality. We know we have a way to go but this will make us better. It was a test for us -- we didn't succeed but we can take a lot of positives into next season."
