Why Man Utd lost 4-2 to Cadiz – Ten Hag. Erik ten Hag, manager of Manchester United, has provided a candid appraisal of his team’s 4-2 loss to Cadiz in a friendly on Wednesday.
The Red Devils’ midseason trip in Spain got off to a losing start.
Ten Hag’s team lost against Cadiz, who are presently ranked 19th in La Liga. Ten Hag’s team fell behind by two goals before coming back to tie the score at halftime.
After the break, Kobbie Mainoo made it 2-2 for United.
Ten Hag made ten substitutions, which worked to Cadiz’s favour as they added two more goals in the second half.
Ten Hag commented, “It’s fairly evident we were not alert, we were sleepy in the first 15 minutes,” in a post-game interview with MUTV. In transition, they posed a danger.
We had a horrible rest defense, especially in the middle, which led to us being ran off in the second goal. It is inappropriate and not doable.
“You give up a goal on the first goal as well, a set play, poor organization and discipline.”
Prior to playing again in the Carabao Cup against Burnley on December 21, United will play Real Betis on December 10.
