The sentiments follow a series of poor performances displayed by the club including a barren draw in the Europa League fixture.

In two games, the Red Devils have completely failed to score a single goal as they hold position twelve with nine points.

He continued by extending his apology to the fans for not winning games admitting the need for a rebuild.

“We’re unhappy with the results. I’ve got to say sorry to the fans. We’re not winning games, but that’s down to a rebuild and this is not a similar situation to Everton last year when I felt people had given up, these boys give everything for the shirt

The defeat is symptomatic of where we are. It’s disappointing. We have given ourselves a very, very tough task to get into the top four and we need results straight away.” Said, Ole Gunner

In eight away fixtures, United have gone without a win is the longest period in the club’s history since 1989.
