Man Utd boss Rangnick on Brighton thrashing: Not a question of individual quality

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick apologised to fans after their 4-0 defeat at Brighton.

Rangnick attempted to pinpoint their problems after the setback.

He said, "We can only apologise to the supporters who came all the way to Brighton, we just weren't good enough. The only time we were a little stable at the back was when we played with a back three in the last 15, 20 minutes but it was not good enough in all aspects of the game.

"We had problems earlier in the season; I saw we lost 4-1 to Watford, who are now relegated. The problem this team has is how to defend as a team; we are not good enough.

"It is not a question of individual quality. We showed that in other games, when we beat Tottenham and West Ham at home and Leeds away. It is a problem of energy and defending as a team. We need to show a different face in the final game because we will need one or three points to make sure we qualify for the Europa League. At times today it looked like we were on the summer break and that is what we need to make up for against Crystal Palace."
