Coach Ten Hag admitted he was very disappointed with Man United’s loss to Brighton when the team lost focus in the final minutes of the game.
Man United has the opportunity to build a stronger position in the top 4 when facing Brighton. However, the “Red Devils” played poorly against the home team of Amex and lost in the last seconds of injury time. Luke Shaw let the ball touch his hand inside the box late in the game and Mac Allister scored the only goal of the game on penalties in the 99th minute.
After the match, coach Ten Hag said that Man United had created enough opportunities to win against Brighton. However, the lack of concentration at the end of the game caused Man United to fail.
“In the first minute we created a great chance but didn’t score. We need to be sharper in the chances we created in the first half.
Obviously we have opportunities. Antony, Martial, Rashford and Casemiro. One of them needs to go into the grid. But if you can’t win because you didn’t take advantage of the opportunity, don’t lose. We gave away a goal. Maybe we lost focus a bit. That cannot happen.
We were also a bit out of luck. The situation where the free kick leads to the corner is an incorrect decision. There were a lot of bad tackles tonight but no whistle. And that ball has nothing, a normal block has a whistle.
We didn’t have time to turn the tide in the game. But we need to win again this Sunday.”
