Harry Maguire is the latest Manchester United star to speak out on the club’s poor form, with the £80 million ($98m) defender admitting that the Red Devils are “not good enough” at present.
Expectations are always high at Old Trafford, with the 13-time Premier League champions the most decorated side of the modern era.
A humbling fall from grace has been endured, however, since the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson headed into retirement back in 2013.
United have not come close to landing another title since the Scot departed, with domestic cup competitions and the Europa League representing their only routes to success.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been charged with the task of bringing the good times back, but the 1999 Treble winner is struggling to inspire results and confidence.
United have just nine points to their name after eight games in 2019-20, with serious questions being asked of playing and coaching staff.
Maguire, who was made the most expensive defender in world football over the summer as United sought to find a transfer spark, concedes that the Red Devils are letting themselves and a loyal fan base down.
Not good enough, gutted. We must stick together #MUFC
