Manchester United Hold Players-Only Meeting After ‘Unacceptable’ Loss :- Frustrated After being humiliated in a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United on Sunday, Manchester United players met without manager Erik ten Hag, according to defender Luke Shaw, who offered a brutally honest appraisal of his team.
Shaw said to Sky Sports after the game, “I’m not going to go too much into that, but the players had a bit of a conversation in the changing room following with no staff present. “Because it’s up to the players on the pitch, and it wasn’t even close to adequate.
We had to express ourselves in front of one another.
In the Premier League rankings, Newcastle passed Manchester United for third place and gained some retaliation against their opponents after falling to them 2-0 in the League Cup final in February.
Callum Wilson, who scored Newcastle’s goals on Sunday at Saint James’ Park alongside Joe Willock, said, “We were upset with the final. “That left us with a bitter aftertaste. We had to do it in front of our followers.”
They successfully made things right by outclassing their opponents in almost every position on the pitch.
Shaw was upset by Manchester
Shaw, who was obviously upset by Manchester United’s dismal performance, remarked that it was especially difficult to take after the international break.
“That which we desired. Not what we anticipated. It will be a difficult day if you arrive at this difficult stadium with a very good side without the proper mentality and hunger. Today, it was evident. We were due for defeat “said he.
The entire squad took some time to recuperate, Shaw continued. “It was obvious that our energy levels had decreased. We arrived today feeling confident and game-ready. As the whistle blows, we’re doing the exact opposite of what we’ve been practicing. Unacceptable.”
Due to the loss, Manchester United now sit in fourth place, one point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur in the battle for a Champions League position for the next season.
Ten Hag claimed that Newcastle simply desired it more.
“I’m sorry to say it, but they were better today, particularly in terms of their tenacity, ardor, and ambition. They won because they wanted to win more “said Ten Hag.
