Man Utd: Erik ten Hag says squad ‘not good enough’ after heavy defeat by Bournemouth

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag said the humiliating 3-0 home Premier League defeat by Bournemouth left him “annoyed” and “disappointed” and admitted his side were “not good enough to be consistent” as their season lurched into another bout of soul-searching.
The latest setback is as bad as any experienced during Ten Hag’s tenure, with skipper Bruno Fernandes calling the performance “not acceptable”.
Ten Hag, meanwhile, described United’s start as “no good” and “poor”.
Once they had fallen behind to Dominic Solanke’s fifth-minute effort, they never seriously threatened an equaliser.
Coming seven days after the performance at Newcastle that was roundly condemned, it raised serious questions over the assurances Ten Hag delivered around the midweek win over Chelsea that United were moving forward.
Asked if his current squad could achieve the consistency required of an elite team, Ten Hag admitted the answer was negative.
“As a squad, we are not good enough to be consistent,” he said.
