Accountability On Display: Erik ten Hag’s Response To Manchester United’s Devastating Loss
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has taken measures to address the aftermath of their humiliating defeat against their rivals, Liverpool, on Sunday. This loss was a major setback in their promising campaign in the Premier League, as they were thrashed 7-0 by the Reds.
As per reports, the United boss held a meeting with his crestfallen players, where they were made to sit in silence and watch Liverpool players celebrate each of their seven goals. After witnessing the celebrations, Ten Hag delivered a stern talking to his players, who were responsible for the club’s most significant league defeat since 1931.
Despite their defeat on Sunday, United has shown significant improvement from last season, and they have already won the first trophy in six years by beating Newcastle United in the League Cup final last week. They are also progressing in the FA Cup and Europa League, and technically, albeit slim, are still in contention to win their first Premier League title since 2013.
Manchester United’s upcoming games include a Europa League match against Spanish side Real Betis at Old Trafford on Thursday and a Premier League game against second-from-bottom Southampton at home on Sunday.
