Manchester United’s players have urged supporters to keep faith in the squad after slumping to the club’s worst start to a league campaign since 1992.
The Reds have lost two of their opening three games and shipped seven goals in the process – a feat they had not managed for 49 years.
Jose Mourinho’s United future was put in the spotlight once again after a painful 3-0 defeat against Tottenham on Monday night, eight days after the Reds lost 3-2 away at Brighton.
But members of the first-team squad from Old Trafford have taken to social media to urge supporters to maintain their belief in the side.
“It’s difficult to swallow a defeat like this when you take on the game as we did and when you have as many chances as we had tonight,”
Ander Herrera tweeted, after being used as a makeshift centre-half in the defeat to Tottenham.
Luke Shaw , who was the only United player to come out of the Spurs defeat with credit,
tweeted : “Last night hurt. But I just wanna thank the fans for your amazing support it doesn’t go unnoticed. We will bounce back.”
Jesse Lingard , who started his first game of the season against Mauricio Pochettino’s side,
urged fans to “Stay positive and keep the faith”, while Eric Bailly – who was omitted from the match-day squad after a calamitous display against Brighton – posted : “Now more that ever… Together”.
