Manchester United: Ralf Rangnick apologises for 'terrible' performance

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick apologized for their terrible performance against Brighton as they were humiliated 4-0. The result meant that they finish the season with the lowest points total in their Premier League history. Manchester United fans packed the away stands with their fans chanting that the players are not fit to wear the jersey after going 4-0 down. The club endured yet another trophyless season with Champions League qualification beyond their reach. This was their third loss by four or more goals this season.

“Yes, it was from the first to the last minute. We were second best. We can only apologize to the supporters. It was a terrible performance and a humiliating defeat,” Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick said. “We gave them too much time, too much space. We couldn’t get into a position to stop them from playing through our lines. The game plan was completely different. We told the players to be as compact as possible and then to release pressure on them. We couldn’t stop them. I don’t think the players ignored the game plan but they weren’t able to stop them. We gave them too much space and time. When you give technically good players this space, this is what can happen.”

“In the second half we took the risk to bring on Cavani to play as a second striker, but in hindsight, it was too much of a risk to play in a 4-4-2 against them but we had to change the energy. Today we were second best,” he added. “As a team, we didn’t defend at all. We couldn’t stop them. What we did, and by myself, was not enough to be in a Manchester United shirt. I accept that.”
