Manchester United manager, David de Gea has come out to blast MUFC for the embarrassing display vs Watford. He recently called on the players to take the blame for the 4-1 defeat they suffered at Vicarage Road.
According to him, the performance was simply unacceptable and even if it is easy to blame the manager or the staff, sometimes it’s the players.
De Gea added that MUFC are not playing the way Manchester United should be playing and he hopes things will improve soon.
His words, “There’s not much to say – it was embarrassing to see Man United play like we did today.”
“It’s not acceptable – the way we were playing and doing things. It’s easy to blame the manager or the staff but sometimes it’s the players. We need to show much more than we are doing.”
“Embarrassing first half – we could’ve conceded four goals in 45 minutes. It was hard to watch the team playing today – it was nightmare after nightmare. It’s not acceptable.”
“We are trying to give our best and fight for the team but for sure something is very wrong. You can see in the games – it’s very low level, very poor. Sorry to the fans, once again.”
“I’ve been in difficult moments and always believe in myself but there are difficult moments we have to be strong in mind and body. We are paid to play for United and to do better than that.”
“This is not Manchester United or the way we ought to play – it’s difficult to say more than that.”
“It’s been very bad for a long time – a club like Man United we have to be fighting for trophies and fighting for big things and to be honest we are far from that. Let’s see – we have to keep working hard and stick together. We always say the same things but it’s the truth – we have to look at ourselves and see where we can improve.”
