Man United boss Erik ten Hag says ‘everyone is united’ at club despite poor start


Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag says “everyone is united” at the club despite a poor start to the season.

United suffered a third successive defeat in a 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League in midweek.

They have lost three of their opening five Premier League games in Ten Hag’s second season in charge.

“I know it’s not always only going up. You will have your gaps and you can get stronger from it as long as you stay together,” the Dutchman said.

“That’s what we are doing in the dressing room, with all staff and coaches.

“Everyone is united and, at United, you fight.”

United have struggled at the start of the season, with defeats by Tottenham, Arsenal and Brighton leaving them 13th in the early standings.

Onana, a £47.2m signing from Champions League finalists Inter Milan to replace David de Gea, in particular has come under scrutiny and insisted he had “let the team down” after his error for Bayern’s first goal on Wednesday.

“It’s about the team and as a team we haven’t been getting results,” Ten Hag said when asked about his goalkeeper.

“Individuals haven’t brought the performance you expect and it’s not only one player but more, including the manager.

“It’s about 11 players doing their job. We attack with 11 and defend with 11, so when one or two don’t do their job then it goes like a pack of cards.”
