The reactions to the Manchester derby held tonight (Sunday), in which City defeated United 3:6, continue to flow.
Alongside the criticism from the former players, the killing on social networks and the wondering why Cristiano Ronaldo did not participate in the game, the team's coach Eric ten Haag tried to explain what happened on the field.
"City deserve all the credit, but it's not about them, our performance was very bad.
As individual players, they neither convinced nor supported each other.
There is a lack of fighting spirit in the team.
The first goal we got was unbelievable.
I can't understand why we didn't bring the fighting spirit to the pitch, I'll talk to them tomorrow and try to find out.
There is a lack of faith in our group.
When you don't believe in yourself, you can't win, it's unacceptable."
On the other hand, the happy coach Pep Guardiola said: "It was an excellent game of ours.
We scored four goals in the first half and could have scored even more.
United improved in the second, but it was a really good game by us and I'm glad all the fans left happy and satisfied.
In the first half we were aggressive and the qualities of the players were reflected.
And yet, there are players who were not good today and need to improve.
Holland and Foden?
I'm a Manchester City fan just like them."

One of the stars of the victory, Erling Holland, who continues to score nets, said at the end: "We scored six goals, that's not bad.
what can i say
this is simply amazing.
We constantly want to attack, that's what I like about our team", the Norwegian added and joked when he said "I think two awards should be given to the players of the game, one for the first half and one for the second".
were we wrong
We will fix it!
