The players feel sorry for the fans, said Pogba on United’s loss to Spurs on Monday night.
Manchester United suffered a crushing defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, as Mourinho’s side went down 3-0 to the North London club. United dominated the match proceedings in the first half and continued to press in the second half, but sloppy defending costed Mourinho’s men two quick goals, and they failed to come back into the game.
As a result, United are now on three points in three games, having also lost their second match of the season to Brighton and Hove Albion. Manchester United travels to Burnley later this week in a bid to go at international break with a win.
Paul Pogba was one of the big names who under-performed against Tottenham Hotspur, and he addressed the media after the match.
“Even we don’t understand what happened. We started the game really well, we conceded two goals in the second-half,” Pogba told the reporters.
“The first goal was a real blow, we didn’t understand why, because we had the game in hand. One goal, two…we kept pushing, we had chances, and we conceded the third.
“The fans kept pushing us, they were really behind us. We feel really sorry for them, very disappointed, we wanted to do better.

“I think it was an undeserved defeat for us. In our desire, in everything we put into it. But football can be cruel. We just have to bounce back. It won’t be easy, but it’s just the start of the season. I prefer to start badly and end well than start well and finish badly.
“It’s bizarre. Today, we were determined, we started well, and in the end we lost 3-0. It’s a shock. We have to keep going, we mustn’t worry. We must work. We are still Manchester United and we won’t give up on anything,” Pogba stated.
