David Wagner told #HTTV that despite the score line not being in his side’s favour, he could not fault the fight that his side put up in defeat.
Town’s Head Coach was speaking after his side’s 2-0 defeat to José Mourinho’s Manchester United at Old Trafford.
David praised his side’s effort in executing the game plan, with the aim to frustrate the opponent by being aggressive in tight spaces.
The Head Coach also admitted that his side were not able to create a goal scoring opportunity over the course of the 90 minutes, with Manchester United’s quality telling in the end as they converted their one key chance.
David Wagner told #HTTV:
“We were aware that this is a difficult task in front of us, we wanted to be solid defensively and find a good formation where we frustrated them, and I think it worked. We were not able to create our moments in the offence because United were concentrated and focused at avoiding our transitions.
“Unfortunately, we made a mistake and conceded the first one, then we made an individual mistake for the second one. It’s frustrating because the players worked so hard but on the other side we have to be honest. These have been difficult fixtures in the last four days with Liverpool and Manchester United.
“What I have seen today, the commitment and working effort, gives me hope for what's in front of us. We now have fixtures at home where we have to get this atmosphere and this vibe in the dressing room, in the stands and in the Town that’s all about surviving in the Premier League.
“We now have these fixtures in front of us where we have the chance to pick up points and we will prepare for this.”
