Manchester United midfielder star Paul Pogba has shared his grievances following his side's heavy loss to Everton. The 25-year-old Frenchman and his teammates saw their quest for a top-four finish hit a snag after the 4-0 mauling at the Goodison Park on Sunday.
The defeat to the Toffees was the Red Devils' fifth in succession away from home in all competitions, a feat which last happened in the 1980/1981 season. In what was Everton's biggest win over Manchester United in 35 years, head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not hold back with criticisms following the end of the proceeding.
At the moment, the Norwegian manager's side sits in the sixth position on the league table - two points away from a Champions League spot - with just four matches to play. Their upcoming test is against title-chasing Manchester City at Old Trafford on Wednesday and Paul Pogba hopes the team can stage a convincing performance as retaliation for yesterday's humiliation.
However, the former Juventus midfielder revealed that he is in the dark as to how things turned out the way they did against Everton. Speaking to Sky Sport, he said: "I wish I knew what went wrong [at Everton]. It was the details, the desire, we spoke about courage and everything we had when the manager came.
"Not to be disrespectful and I am not disrespectful of Everton, but the way we played and the performance of myself, of the team, of everyone, is disrespectful. We didn't respect ourselves, the club, or the fans.
"What we did on the pitch is not respectful for the team-mates, for the staff, for the people, for the kitman, for everyone.
"They put their life on us, the team and this club. What we showed on the pitch, we did not give the joy back and that's why we're angry with ourselves.
"We want to do better for sure and we have to. The reaction has to be there.
"I want to say [to the fans], and I know it may not be enough, but the fans want a reaction from the players and the only way to apologize to them is to give everything on the pitch, we did not give them the joy back and that's why we're angry with ourselves.
"We want to do better for sure and we have to. The reaction has to be there."
