Hard notes cracked at United after ‘terrible day’: ‘Brave players needed’

David de Gea goes through the dust after Brentford-Manchester United (4-0). The Spanish goalkeeper completely takes the blame for the extensive defeat of his team.
De Gea was underperforming against Brentford, and the goalie made a huge mistake that resulted in the 1-0, while he didn‘t look good at 3-0 either. โ€œI cost my team three points today,โ€ the goalkeeper tells Sky Sports. โ€œIt was a bad performance for me and a terrible day.โ€
United is in the lower reaches of the Premier League after two duels with only one run. De Gea draws a painful conclusion. โ€œWe are not like other teams, who fall behind, but still win 5-1 or 6-1,โ€ he says. โ€œIn the matches that matter, you need brave and good players. We have to keep working hard and keep our heads up. This is the start under a new manager and there is still a lot to improve on.โ€
Next week, Erik ten Hag and United will meet Liverpool at Old Trafford. De Gea does not know if his team will be able to turn the tide by then. โ€œTo be honest, I wouldn’
t know that,โ€ he reacts shaking his head.
