Erik Ten Hag slams Man United following Brentford thumping

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has laid into his team after they suffered one of their worst ever defeats.

In action earlier on Saturday against Thomas Frank’s Bees, fans, after witnessing their club lose their Premier League opener against Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend, would have been desperate for a reaction.

However, despite the urgency to register some points on the table, all the Red Devils could muster was a whimper.

Thumped four-nil by the former Championship side, United, along with ten Hag, were left humiliated from first whistle to last.

Speaking to Sky Sports after his side’s abysmal performance, the ex-Ajax boss did not hold back in his assessment.

“The team has to take the responsibility,” the 52-year-old said, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“I feel sorry for the fans. I asked them to play with belief and take responsibility, that is what they didn’t do.”

United’s next league game is set to be against arch-rivals Liverpool and the match, which is scheduled for a week on a Monday, will prove to be one of the Red Devils’ biggest tests of the season.

In preparation for the fierce encounter, ten Hag would have been eager to host his bitter rivals off the back of a win, but it wasn’t to be, and now fans will be fearing the worst as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds look set to run riot – again.
