We made mistakes – Ten Hag criticizes Man Utd players after 4-0 win over Liverpool

Erik ten Hag

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has said his players made mistakes despite a 4-0 win over Liverpool in his first game.

Ten Hag also warned them not to get carried away with the victory.

United kicked off their tour of Thailand and Australia with a resounding win over Jurgen Klopp’s side thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho, Fred, Anthony Martial and Facundo Pellistri.

Ten Hag said afterwards he was pleased with the result but insisted there was plenty of room for improvement and pointed to Klopp’s decision to play three different teams for 30 minutes each as a key reason behind the result.

“Of course we are satisfied today because I think that was a team with a great spirit and we know we are just starting and things went wrong, clearly,” he said. “We did the press, we made some mistakes in pressing, we conceded some chances, but also we created a lot.

“I think our team played brave, played proactive. We have to work really hard to cut out the mistakes but of course we are happy with the first game.

“I have seen a lot of mistakes. You would not say [when you look] at the result but, be honest, Liverpool plays in three teams.

“They were not at their strongest so we have to not overestimate this result. We have to [be careful].”
