Manchester United manager Harry Maguire has apologized to fans of the club after Liverpool’s 5-0 humiliation on Sunday night.
The Englishman led his side during the game at Old Trafford but offered little resistance to a formidable Liverpool side led by Mohamed Salah who scored a hat trick.
After the game, Maguire said her overall performance, especially in defense, was nowhere near good.
“We apologize to the fans, it was nowhere near good enough for this club. They stayed with us to the end and we appreciate that, but as a club we have to do better,” he said.
Added: “I’m so disappointed we gave them so many chances. They were so clinical, we had many chances ourselves, but I’m a defender and four goals conceded in the first half, especially at Old Trafford, are nowhere near good enough.”
In addition to Salah’s hat trick, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota found the end of the net to bring Man United their biggest loss to Liverpool at Old Trafford.
The loss means United haven’t won a single game in their last four Premier League games, putting pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United are currently in seventh place with 14 points, nine behind leaders Chelsea who are 22.
