Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has admitted the club is in a difficult phase at this early stage of the 2023/24 season following another defeat.

The Red Devils blew away their lead twice in their game against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday night, going on to lose 2-3 at Old Trafford. The defeat was the third home defeat in four games this season after losses to Brighton and Hove Albion, Crystal Palace and the Turkish side.

United have lost six of their opening 10 games across all competitions for the first time in 37 years and their chances of getting out of the group stages already look in doubt with two defeats in two games in the Champions League.

Asked whether he feared for his future at the club, the Dutchman answered, “Last season: brilliant, terrific, more than we could expect.

“We also knew in this project there would be common gaps. At this moment we are in a very difficult period as everyone can see but we come out together, we are fighting together, we are sticking together and we are behind each other. That is me, the directors, the team, all together we will fight.

“This is not us, we know we have to do better, with togetherness we will come out.

“If I give an explanation, then you will see as excuses, there are no excuses. We can’t make the errors we are now making. We have to do better, it is a simple fact, we have to win our games.”

United their attention to the Premier League this weekend where they face Brentford before the international break.
