Erik ten Hag reveals dressing room anger and comments after Man Utd's Liverpool defeat.

Following Manchester United’s 7-0 defeat against Liverpool, Erik ten Hag has given an insight into the dressing room and his post-match debrief with the players.

“I said in the dressing room it’s not acceptable, their performance, it’s clear,” he explained. “But it’s only one game, though a big defeat, unacceptable, and especially for our fans, especially against Liverpool. We will bounce back. This team is strong enough to go, reset itself, and we will bounce back. I know my players, they are good characters, and they can bounce back and they will do.”

When asked if he was angry about the game, Ten Hag responded: “Yes, definitely, and surprised. I have seen, the last weeks and months, a team that is really in a winning attitude. In the second half, we did not have a winning attitude at all.”

The Dutchman is confident that his players have good characters and that they will be able to bounce back from this defeat. He believes that they have a strong enough mentality to reset themselves and come back stronger.

Overall, Ten Hag’s comments show that he is disappointed with his team’s performance but is also optimistic about their future. He knows that they have the ability to bounce back from this defeat and that they will be able to come back stronger in the future.
