Sun 24 October 2021 | 20:08

Manchester United captain has issued an apology to the club’s supporters for their poor performance in Sunday’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah

’s hat-trick and goals from

Diogo Jota

and

Naby Keita

brought

Liverpool

a 5-0 victory over

Manchester United

at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Maguire

was one of many United players who had a horrible evening against Jurgen Klopp's side, with the Old Trafford visitors scoring five past a disastrous backline.

After the game, Maguire spoke to

Sky Sports

to give his verdict - and issued a lengthy apology to Man United supporters.

"We apologize to the fans, it was nowhere near good enough for this club. They stuck with us right to the end and we appreciate that but as a club we have to do better.

"I am so disappointed, we gave them so many chances. They were so clinical, we had a lot of chances ourselves but I am a defender and to concede four in the first half especially at Old Trafford is nowhere near good enough.

"As a player I know myself. I’ll be looking at myself and my individual performance.

"We have to stick together, there is no point blaming each other but look at ourselves. Look in the mirror when we go home tonight and think where we can do better.

"To lose to Liverpool in any game of football hurts. The rivals, the way we lost the game, to be 4-0 down at half time in front of our fans, like I say it is not good enough."

When asked if embarrassing was a description too far, he added:

"Not really. The term I’d use is not good enough. I look at those lads each day in training and we are working hard as we can but at the moment it is not good enough. I apologize to the fans, we have to look at ourselves as individuals but also stick together."
