“As a club, as a group of players, the staff and the manager; everyone is in this together. We have to stick together and win football matches. We all have to take responsibility for that, we are all in it together," he told Sky Sports, manutd.com reported.
“We are on a horrible run, it’s a horrible feeling, it hurts a lot and it’s hard to take. We are not playing well enough as a squad, we take responsibility for that, it has to be a lot better. When you are on a bad run, it’s tough, it’s hard to take.
“This is Manchester United we are playing for, it’s a special club and it's a privilege to play here - we need to do better, it’s as simple as that.”
