Despite losing to Brighton at Old Trafford for the third time in four games, Erik ten Hag thinks Manchester United are not in trouble.
At Old Trafford, United lost 3-1 against Brighton, marking their third defeat in their first five games. Ten Hag was under more pressure after the loss, and the Old Trafford crowd booed him when manager decided to replace Anthony Martial with Rasmus Hojlund.
Ten Hag responded, “No, but we have to be very upset and irritated about ourselves, when asked if the club is in trouble. We’ll change this. However, there is a need for us. We had a strong start, we created opportunities, but we need to handle the setback better.
Additionally, he expressed his frustration with his team’s sluggish start while urging them to remain unified, saying, “That is something that definitely irritates me, but I also have to see the way we play. Finally, everything comes down to character; we must demonstrate our resiliency and unity.
The club is in a foul mood as a result of the poor start and serious injury problems with important players. Jadon Sancho was also banished following a public altercation with the manager, while Antony was given a leave of absence to address the accusations leveled against him. United is now in 13th place, six points behind the top four and five points clear of the relegation zone after losing three of their past four games.
