‘I was’nt correct’ – what Premier League contenders have said about Man United this season

After a lackluster start to the Premier League season, Erik ten Hag hopes to reverse the tide.

Losses to both north London clubs were not in the plan for Manchester United, which was 11th in the table prior to the first international break. Nevertheless, the season is still in its infancy, and Ten Hag has ample time to make amends.

The Reds should be competing at the summit of the Premier League, and next weekend’s crucial match against Brighton is the ideal opportunity for Ten Hag and his squad to kick off their season.

Before the match at Old Trafford, MEN Sport examined what United’s adversaries have said about the club in recent months…

Mikel Arteta on last weekend’s dramatic victory: “For every team, the competition is like game one, game two, game three, and game four, and there are still 34 games to go!

“Therefore, just concentrate on the game and perform more naturally; the result will follow. If you deserve it after 38 games you will be where you deserve. We can only concentrate on that because it is still so early.”


Mauricio Pochettino on the sale of Mason Mount: “When I discuss the future, I focus on the squad’s players. He is currently a Manchester United player. I don’t know what transpired in the past, but I do know that we need to focus on our players and build a good story.”

John Terry on the Mason Mount deal: “Mase is a complete and utter Chels. There are always two aspects to a story, and I am aware of the other. This will not be discussed tonight, but there is another side to the story. Let’s not be too severe with him when he returns.”

Ange Postecoglou, after United’s 2-0 defeat: “It was tasty. It is reasonable to say that we appeared somewhat anxious at the beginning, which was not unexpected.

“There were two 20-year-olds and a few 22-year-olds on the field. I thought we gave the ball away a tad too often, and to be fair, Manchester United had the better opportunities.

“I appreciate that we persevered and worked our way back into the contest. In patches, the second half demonstrated the type of team we want to be.”

Kevin De Bruyne on Bruno Fernandes: “In principle, I believe he is a creative machine. Odegaard is highly imaginative but somewhat more controlled.

“Maddison is also extremely creative, but I’d like to see him on a larger team more often. Fernandos has been doing this for a very long time. Odegaard was incredible last season, but he’s fresher now, so that’s a difference.


After United secured Pogba for £100 million, Jurgen Klopp remarked, “Everything changed” Do I enjoy it? No. Did I recognize my error? Yes. That is the way things are. Saudi Arabia will not assist in this endeavor.

“In the end, we must attempt to assemble the strongest possible team. 50% will enjoy it, while 50% will not. We are attempting to assemble the finest team possible.

“We cannot simply point at players and recruit them; there is much work to be done.” Occasionally, one door closes and another opens. No problem if individuals wish to discard my quotes from five years ago. I recognize my error.”
