Erik ten Hag, manager of Manchester United, has stated that the team’s standards had “dropped” this year.
After losing seven of their past nine games, including their last two at home, United welcomes Brentford on Saturday.
If they lose again at Old Trafford, it will be the first time since October 1962 that they have dropped three consecutive home games.
We’re fighting to recover lost ground after having plummeted several levels.
Although there may be some justifications for it, it is still unacceptable and we must work to change that. The teams we field must always be on the same page, yet we often lack the procedures necessary for this.
“They have a good foundation in the way they play, keep the foundation, support each other and we will do better,” Ten Hag told a news conference on Friday.
