Manchester United failed to continue their journey in the Carabao Cup. Erik ten Hag's team lost to Newcastle at Old Trafford (0:3). This is another in a series of disappointing results for Manchester United. The fans are impatient, they want the departure of the Dutch expert and the departure of certain players.

It was Erik ten Hag who pointed out at the press conference after the match that this is not Manchester United's standard. He took responsibility for the poor results. 'We know the standards you can expect with Manchester United, it is not good enough by far.

We have to put things right. I take responsibility for it, it’s my team and they’re not performing. I share it with my players but I’m responsible.' - Erik ten Hag said.

Manchester United is having one of the worst seasons in the history of the club.

Although it is only the beginning of the season, it is difficult to be optimistic that things can be improved, looking at the performance of individual players and their form. ‘As a team we aren’t good enough, whatever the reasons are.

No space for excuses. We have to do things better, we have to raise our standards because otherwise you never get the right levels, performance or results.' The Dutch expert pointed out that the team lacks self-confidence.

When things don't go your way, it's logical that the confidence of the team is lost. In those moments, it is necessary to work mentally, communicate with the players, and understand where the biggest mistakes are made. Erik ten Hag knows this very well, but it seems that individuals find it difficult to be motivated.

‘The results are not there, the logical process is the confidence goes down. You are at Manchester United, it’s expected that you deal with that pressure so that’s normal. Play football but they have to understand we have to do it together, everyone has to take responsibility for his own performance and togetherness for the performance.’ Source: METRO
