After the 0: 7 embarrassment at Liverpool FC, frustration is great at Manchester United. Nobody talks about a crisis meeting with the English football record champions, but about processing.
Unprofessional, embarrassing, embarrassing: After Manchester United’s record 7-0 defeat in the Premier League at Liverpool, coach Erik ten Hag and his players struggled with their performance in the second 45 minutes.
The second half was unprofessional. We didn’t play as a team, the Dutchman said angrily at the press conference and announced an intensive review. This must not happen and we must talk about it.
On Sunday evening, the team, unbeaten in eleven games in the English football championship, suffered their worst defeat against Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool – by conceding six goals in the second half. He was upset and surprised because his team hadn’t brought anything of the previous winning mentality to the pitch, said ten Hag. It was the whole team, you saw eleven individual players lose their heads. That’s unprofessional, that’s not Manchester United, the coach railed.
Central defender Luke Shaw called his team’s performance unacceptable and embarrassing. The performance was a disgrace. On the pitch I was ashamed of us players, of the fans who supported us and who are watching at home, said the international. He can only apologize for the second half. It was totally unacceptable. We didn’t show any personality or mentality, he admitted, also announcing a no-holds-barred take on the game and what went wrong.
On Thursday, Manchester United will face Real Betis Sevilla in the Europa League round of 16 first leg. Then the third in the table wants to appear differently. We can’t let one result derail our whole season because I think we’re in a really good position and I think that’s another hurdle we have to overcome and we, as a team, will overcome that and I think we’ll come back positively on Thursday night. I’m sure of it, Shaw announced. Ten Hag is also convinced of that: We will recover. This team is strong enough to regroup and we will get back on our feet.
