AFP: Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag believes the Red Devils will work their way out of an early season crisis after facing questions over whether he fears losing his job. United have lost six of their last nine matches after they lost 3-2 at home by Galatasaray yesterday. The English giants have lost their opening two games of the Champions League group stage for the first time. United are also off to their worst ever start to a Premier League season after losing four of their opening seven matches.
Ten Hag enjoyed a successful first season at Old Trafford, leading the club back into the Champions League by finishing third in the Premier League and ending a six-year trophy drought by lifting the League Cup. “Last season went brilliant, terrific, more than we could expect,” said the former Ajax boss. “Also when we went into this project we knew there would be gaps. In this moment we are in a very difficult period as everyone can see but we (will) come out together.
“We are fighting together, we stick together, we are behind each other. Me, the directors, the team all together we will fight. This is not us. We know we have to do better and in togetherness we will come out (of this situation).” Goalkeeper Andre Onana had another night to forget as his difficult start to life at United goes on. He accepted responsibility for United’s 4-3 defeat at Bayern Munich two weeks ago after a handling error led to the Germans’ opening goal.
