Rangnick: Man Utd humiliated | Bruno: We’re not fit to wear the shirt
Ralf Rangnick apologised to Manchester United supporters after he said his “terrible” side were “humiliated” in the 4-0 defeat to Brighton.
Brighton thrashed United at the Amex Stadium to ensure the visitors will finish the season with their worst points total in the Premier League era.
The defeat on the south coast means Rangnick’s side can no longer match the 64 points they achieved in the 2013/14 campaign as the German’s penultimate game in interim charge hit a new low.
When asked if the performance was the worst of his tenure, he told Sky Sports: “Yes it was from the first to the last minute.
“We were second best. We can only apologise to the supporters. It was a terrible performance and a humiliating defeat.”
Manchester United’s supporters packed out the away end at the Amex but their anger towards the team was easy to hear after they side conceded the fourth goal, chanting en masse: “You’re not fit to wear the shirt.”
When asked about the chanting, captain for the day Bruno Fernandes agreed with the supporters.
He told Sky Sports: “What we did, and by myself, was not enough to be in a Manchester United shirt. I accept that.”
Brighton travel to Leeds in their penultimate Premier League game of the season on May 15 (kick-off 2pm). They then finish the campaign at home to West Ham seven days later (kick-off 4pm).
Manchester United have one match remaining of the Ralf Rangnick era. They travel to Crystal Palace on May 22 (kick-off 4pm).
