“It was a terrible idea,” the future Austrian national coach is quoted on the BBC website. “From the first to the last minute, it was not enough of everything,” Rangnick criticized his team. “We can only apologize for this humiliating defeat.”
We can only apologize for this humiliating defeat.
Through the desolate 0: 4 \ – the fourth defeat in the 28th comparison against Brighton & Hove – Manunited also left the last theoretical chance of qualification for the Champions League miserably. At best, the Europa League will remain as a “consolation” for the proud club in the coming season. However, there is also a risk of relegation to the third -class Europa Conference League.
“We were never able to prevent them from playing through our ranks,” Rangnick stated after the game. “We wanted to be as compact as possible, but we left them too much space and could not stop their game flow.”
It is also clear after the defeat that the Red Devils will now complete the 2021/22 season with the lowest score since 1990/91. With speech choirs like “you are not worth wearing the jersey”, the traveling fans of their frustration and anger took air.
Bruno Fernandes: “What we showed was not enough to wear Manchester United’s jersey”
The deputy captain Bruno Fernande’s understanding of the resentment of our own supporters: “What we showed – what I showed – was not enough to wear Manchester United’s jersey, and I accept it,” said Bruno Fernandes. “We have to face it and can only be ashamed of it, because that was not good enough of everyone.”
The defeat once again makes it clear that Manunited faces a complete change. Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored nine of the last twelve goals of Manunited, stayed far below his possibilities in Brighton. The Portuguese superstar will be 38 years old in February 2023, whether he will be available for a restart under the new coach Erik Ten HAG, remains to be seen.
After all, his compatriot Bruno Fernandes announced that I signed my contract in Old Trafford because I think the future will be better, “said the Portuguese midfielder. However, he also added: “But of course many things have to be improved, as we saw this season.”
