Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag has given a scathing assessment of his team’s pitiful performance against Liverpool which led to a 7-0 defeat.
Addressing reporters after the match, Ten Hag said he was disappointed with the way his players reacted to conceding two goals so soon after the break. He added that he couldn’t recognize the team throughout the match.
The Dutch coach said;
“It’s 3-0, as a team you stick together. We didn’t do that. I’m surprised to see this from our team, I don’t think it’s us, I don’t think it’s Manchester United.”
Ten Hag also averred that the Manchester United side which played against Liverpool were “unprofessional”. He added;
“After halftime, so quickly we gave the game away. We made bad decisions on the ball, how we anticipate, how we concede the goal. The third [goal] was a counter and we were so unprofessional with our decisions, running away, giving the space away, not tracking back.”
