Ten Hag’s reaction to Anfield defeat


“You can have setbacks but what can’t happen is you don’t stick together. You have to do your job, it’s not possible to make the wrong decisions in the transitions. We didn’t track the runs. We didn’t track back and that, for me, is unacceptable. As a squad, as a team, you can’t allow this. You have to stick together and you have to fight and support each other. You have to defend, which is what we didn’t do. You still have to keep your head up and that is what we didn’t do. We couldn’t cope with the defeat, maybe they were not used to it, it can be [like that] but you have to stick together. You can’t play as an individual.”


“I said in the dressing room it’s not acceptable, their performance, it’s clear. But it’s only one game, though a big defeat, unacceptable, and especially for our fans, especially against Liverpool. We will bounce back. This team is strong enough to go, reset itself, and we will bounce back. I know my players, they are good characters, and they can bounce back and they will do.”
