The head coach of Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, commented on the defeat against Bournemouth with a score of 0-3 in the Premier League. The Mancunians suffered a resounding loss at Old Trafford to a less renowned opponent, conceding three unanswered goals.

The mentor of the Red Devils stated that he takes full responsibility for the disappointing outcome.

"Of course, annoyed, disappointed, definitely. Expected something different, I hoped before the game you can build on from the performance and result from Chelsea, so it's very disappointing, the way we started the game.

Then I think a long time we did everything to get back in the game, we get one shot, almost a penalty, then in the build-up we make a mistake and we are not good enough in the rest of defence and that is disappointing. You're following facts, we put a lot of effort in to turn in the game, but then the brilliance, the movement in the box were not there to get the equaliser. After the 2-0, we broke down so we have to do things better.

The way we started is no good, that is poor. It's first five minutes of the game and especially against an opponent like today, very good transition team, you give them perfect circumstances, it shouldn't happen.

I think we have to always be ready for the game and so I have to take the responsibility for that, I have to prepare the team so they are ready for the game. From my point of view, I'm very disappointed the way we started and we have to be better", - Ten Hag said.

After the defeat, Manchester United remained in the sixth position in the Premier League table. On December 12th, ten Hag's team will face Bayern Munich in the Champions League. In the Champions League group stage, the Red Devils are at the bottom of their group after five rounds and are at risk of missing out on the playoffs.
