Other players who used Instagram to emphasise the importance of the Reds sticking together included starter Eric Bailly, unused substitutes Amad and Brandon Williams, and a man who came off the bench to take a successful penalty, Alex Telles.
Eric Bailly (@ericbailly24):
“Frustrated by last night’s match. These are not easy times. Thanks to all the fans for your support in good times and bad. It’s time to rest with the family and come back stronger.”
“We are all disappointed, but it must make us stronger. Thank you to the supporters who accompanied us throughout the season. United today, United forever.”
Brandon Williams (@branwilliams):
“Minor setbacks – major comebacks. Win or lose we stick together as one.”
Alex Telles (@alextelles13):
“All together, when we win and when we lose! Thank you for your support.”
