Garnacho issues a public apology for United's 7-0 defeat to Liverpool

Manchester United suffered their heaviest-ever defeat to their arch-rivals, Liverpool on Sunday, just a week after winning the EFL Cup. Garnacho is the latest player to apologize for the humiliating result.

Although Manchester United ended their six-year trophy drought with a 2-0 EFL Cup final victory over Newcastle last week, they suffered their join-worst defeat ever on Sunday at Anfield when they got hammered 7-0 by their arch-rivals.

After apologies from David de Gea and Luke Shaw, Alejandro Garnacho apologized for the result on social media. He wrote: "We are so sorry. We will give you a reaction on Thursday, Reds."

After eliminating Barcelona in the Europa League, Man United will face Real Betis on Thursday. Despite chasing a cup treble this season, Luke Shaw accepted their performance was simply not good enough. He said: "It was unacceptable. Embarrassing, to be honest.

"On the pitch I felt embarrassed for us players, for the fans that were there supporting us, that were watching at home, to watch that second half.

"I can only apologise for that and us as players have to own it, we have to stand up and accept that it was nowhere near good enough.

"It was completely unacceptable and I'm sure they’re hurting, but us as players are hurting a lot.

"Our standards have clearly dropped since we've won [the EFL Cup] and in the last couple of games we haven't been our normal selves.

"We showed no personality, no mentality and for a big team to come here we need to be better."
