Vurnon Anita: Newcastle horrible place to be right now

Vurnon Anita admits Newcastle United is a "horrible place" to be right now.

The midfielder started the derby humiliation by Sunderland.

"We must forget this game as quickly as we can and move on. It's as simple as that. Everything went wrong. It ended 3-0 and everything that could go wrong did. You cannot put the finger on one thing because it was everything. Nothing went right. All we can do is work hard, try very hard to forget it and hope that the pain goes away," said Anita.

"It's strange because we have been playing really well lately but not today. We wanted it so badly and it turned into a disaster for us. What can the manager say? Everyone knows what this game meant for all the fans and the players as well. The dressing room is a horrible place to be right now.

"I don't know why this happened because we have given everyone a good game this season and beaten some of the top teams. I cannot answer why Sunderland have beaten us again. Maybe we are trying too hard, I don't know. Maybe we wanted it too much and that affected us."
