Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has told his players to stop feeling sorry for themselves, according to the UK Sun.
This follows their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Brentford on Saturday.
The result leaves the Red Devils bottom of the Premier League after two games.
Ten Hag has so far been unable to impose his philosophy on a team that finished sixth last term.
The Dutchman attempted to make his mark in the wake of the Brentford defeat by cancelling the squad’s planned day off on Sunday and dragging them in for extra training.
He also called them in for a frank team meeting, in which he told them to stop feeling sorry for themselves in a brutal speech which also called on the squad to start showing some fight and belief.
Ten Hag described the Brentford performance as an “embarrassment” at half-time and demanded a response after the break.
He made a triple-substitution at half-time, but saw no fightback as the hosts held onto their four-goal lead comfortably.
Their next fixture is at home against Liverpool on Monday.
