Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has broken his silence after his side suffered a 4-0 embarrassing defeat to Brentford on Saturday, August 13.
The Red Devils were hoping to get their Premier League campaign back on track when they took on the Bees, having lost in their season opener against Brighton.
However, Ten Hag's charges continued with their woeful form at the Gtech Community Stadium as they were humbled by a resurgent Brentford side.
First-half goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee, and Bryan Mbuemo were enough to see off United as the Bees secured their first ever win over the Red Devils in 84 years.
