With Manchester United enduring problems on and off the field, Juan Mata has bemoaned what has been happening at Old Trafford.

Juan Mata

has asked for a reset at

Manchester United

when he suggested that those who do not go by the club’s standards should leave the Old Trafford.

United went through a bad season and notwithstanding what happens in their battle against

Crystal Palace

on Sunday, they will end the season at the lowest points in their history of

Premier League


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked in November before Ralf Rangnick became his temporary replacement. However, he will also leave his role with the lowest win rate for United as a manager. Erik ten Hag is expected to coma and turn things around, and Mata urged his side to improve.

"It's clear that on the pitch, we have made many mistakes," 

Mata told

The Athletic


"We could have also dealt better with certain situations that were happening in the club, managers changing, negative things.

"At the end of the day, we let that maybe affect too much the energy of Carrington.

"Certain standards were not met. Whether that's attitude, level of training, off the pitch, which doesn't include players, we haven't been good enough. So that's where we could learn.

"Also, certain things were out of our control, which we shouldn't let affect us. You feel that way when you see certain things are not good enough. But we shouldn't have let things happen.

"Many circumstances can affect certain behaviours. If you don't have a solid base, when bad things come, it is difficult to stay all together.

"We need a reset in the culture of the club. That's how I feel. The standards, what it means to represent this club to any player, what entitles you to play for Manchester United, what is expected on the pitch and off the pitch.

"Many things that need to be clear – this is Manchester United and anyone who doesn't meet those standards is not up to the task and should not be here. That's as clear as I can be."

United should win against Palace to not drop to seventh. Cristiano Ronaldo will be determined to add to his 18 goals in the Premier League, while David de Gea will try to end positively.

"We know [this season has] been difficult," he told MUTV. "But at least just for [the fans] and for our pride [we will] try to win the game.

"[I want to] at least give a win for the fans because they have been absolutely amazing for the whole season and it's great to have them at every single game.

"It will always have been a tough season for us, but I am very proud of my season, to be honest.

"I worked really hard in the summer to be here and be ready to play and show my qualities for the team. I think I did very well. I played very consistent this season and helped the team a lot."
