After being well beaten by a dynamic and exciting Brighton and Hove Albion side, Man United manager, Erik ten Hag, offered the lamest of excuses for another poor performance.
For the first time in the Red Devils illustrious history, they’ve lost three of their opening five matches in a season, and it shouldn’t be forgotten that they were lucky to win the other two.
“It was not our day,” the Dutchman said after the match, supplementing that quote with more cliches.
It was painful to watch, and in the space of a few games in 2023/24, ten Hag has gone from hero to zero.
The last thing he needs is to be playing Bayern Munich in the Champions League as United’s next match.
