Jose Mourinho has said he will no longer be criticising individual Manchester United players in public, a major reversal of past patterns, following the abject performance in a 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday.
"The attitude that we had was not like we wanted to beat them. I put myself first, that my attitude wasn't right", said the French World Cup victor.
Having left Real Madrid after orchestrating a third Champions League title, Zinedine Zidane is now enjoying a well-earned break, but the former French World Cup victor is sure to relish a chance to show his managerial abilities, should the United job come up.
Manchester United fans were absolutely furious with Eric Bailly's performance vs Brighton following the loss on Sunday evening.
"I thought the tempo, right from the start [was key] - we always had an outlet", he said.
With Alexis Sanchez missing the game through injury, Mourinho introduced Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard at half-time, but there was little improvement to their attacking display and Pogba's finish from the spot came too late to rescue a result. "We made incredible mistakes in some crucial moments, mistakes that killed us. Mistakes that killed us".
Mourinho's players found themselves 2-0 down within half an hour but managed to pull one back through Romelu Lukaku.
Darmian has struggled to hold down a starting spot in the Manchester United team since Mourinho took over the reins from Louis van Gaal in May 2016.
And he claimed the backlash he received for doing so means he won´t speak his mind so freely despite his third season in charge ominously getting off to a bad start like it did at Real Madrid and his second season at Chelsea. "I don't want to talk for other people, I think you should ask him".
Striker Murray took advantage of shoddy defending to superbly flick home the 25th-minute opener, and centre-back Duffy converted two minutes later after the visitors failed to clear a corner.
Despite suggesting he is unhappy at Old Trafford after scoring in last weekend´s 2-1 win over Leicester, Pogba was again handed the captain´s armband by Mourinho.
Pogba, captaining United, made the scoreline more respectable with nearly the final kick of the game following Duffy's foul on substitute Marouane Fellaini.
"You win some, you lose some but the good thing is there's always the next game to make things good again".
