Manchester United boss Ole wasn’t too happy with Manchester United’s performance against Watford on Sunday. He lashed out at the team and compared the first-half performance to a mere “testimonial”.
Man United lost 2-0 to Watford on Sunday. The team’s plan was to recover from the Everton loss and bounce back in the Premier League. But that didn’t happen.
“In the first half, it could have easily been my testimonial, maybe it would have been a better atmosphere in my testimonial, to be fair,” Ole said.
“It was very subdued, slow, no tempo, no urgency, any bit of encouragement their crowd got was when we gave them some set-plays and we gifted them two goals.
“I’m very disappointed and [before the match] we spoke about this and looking to be more positive, that we know we’ve started up something with the rebuild.
“But at this moment, I’m very disappointed, because we have to come to these stadiums to get more points.
“I’m sure they [Watford] are low on confidence, because they must be when you’re bottom of the table. We were high on confidence because we’ve been doing well lately.
“But it just wasn’t there, there was no intent or urgency to make us deserve to win the game.”
