Erik ten Hag has insisted that UTD’s record trashing at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool was against the run of play. Liverpool scored 7 without reply in the standout performance of a difficult season.
“The best team lost,” ten Hag told Soccer on Sunday. “On another day we could have won 12 – 8, or even 15 – 11. Even at 7 – 0 I felt we were in control, and you could see they were frightened to come searching for an 8th. We’ve battered Liverpool at Anfield and been undone by 7 jammy goals against the run of play.”
“I thought Bruno was outstanding,” said the 53 year-old. “The game plan was for him to behave like a stroppy 8 year-old cunt, and he’s performed that role flawlessly. Flailing arms, whinging, not tracking back, asking to come off — it was a captain’s performance from a world class cunt.”
“Other than the result and the scoreline, it’s mission accomplished,” he added, lighting a Cuban cigar.
