Thanks Reds.

“After 2-1, we're still in the game. You don't win games of football by making individual mistakes, errors and making a performance like that.”

"When we get the start we did, you think, 'Yeah, we've got the game where we want it.' And then you make a few bad decisions and you're suddenly two or three-one down. Of course it's alarming. It's nowhere near good enough. I hold my hand up. It's my decision to pick the team I did and we, us as a squad, that's not good enough for Man United.”

"When you have a defeat like this, which has happened at the club before, you've just got to look yourself in the mirror. They're lucky now, the boys, or I don't know if it is lucky, but they're going away on international duty some of them and for the ones who are staying here, we've got a good [amount of] time to work. But we don't [all] see each other for ten days and that's hard now because we need to batten down the hatches and get together because that wasn't anywhere near good enough as a squad or a team.”

“We defend as a team, we defend from the front, we defend as a group and whoever we're linked with doesn't mean it's true, does it? We're going to be linked with players all day long but we need as a group and a team to get the performances as we were before the lockdown or after the restart, when we were a very good defensive team and we didn't concede loads of goals. With the talented players [we have] it's something I have to look at because we can't be as open as we were today.”

“When you're 2-1 down, you're still in with a chance. 3-1 down makes it very hard one minute later. So that's when you try to re-organise and make sure you stick in the game and get the next goal. 4-1 down you've probably lost the game so then it's about showing your character, showing your personality. We had to try to close their avenues to goal and we didn't, we were too passive. We didn't come out with any aggression in the second half which I had hoped for.”

“Of course there are a lot of wrongs there today. Maybe it's the preparation that we've given them, it's all sorts. We need to look at everything and as a coaching staff, we've got loads of time to do that now.”
