Ten Hag Finally Responds To What Luke Shaw Said After 2-0 Loss To Newcastle United
Speaking to the reporters on Sunday, Erik ten Hag said: “Luke Shaw was right, I agree with him, Newcastle wanted it more.
“They were more determined, passionate and had more desire. I hate to say it, they were better today. Especially in determination, passion and desire.
“They wanted to win more this week. So they won. We had our opportunities but then you have to go for goal with the determination they did.
“It wasn’t good enough. We allowed them too many chances. In the past we were better. You have to be hungry, give everything, every game.”
