David de Gea asked Sky Sports to be interviewed after Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat to Brentford so that he could squeeze in for the disastrous result.
The Spanish stopper was at fault for Brentford’s opening goal and let Josh Dasilva’s shot slip into the net between his hands.
The Bees would go on to score three first-half goals via Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo in a shocking 45 minutes from the visitors.
After the game, the 31-year-old admitted to costing his side two points and admitting his poor performance.

“I want to take my responsibility.” said DeGea.
“I think I cost my team two points. It was a poor performance from me. I think so. That is possible in football.
“We should have reacted better, but I should have saved the first shot. If I had had the first result, it might have been different. Maybe I should read the game better and kick it for a long time. We always try to play, we always try to have the ball.
“We are not like other teams. We see teams concede a goal and then win 5-1. For us, I made a mistake and it may have changed the outcome.’
New manager Erik ten Hag made the changes during halftime, removed new signing Lisandro Martinez and replaced him with Raphael Varane.

However, they failed to salvage anything from the game and Brentford looked out comfortably into the second half to post a famous Premier League win.
De Ge admits his side had it too easy in pre-season and the teams around the Red Devils have improved while United have been at a standstill.
“It’s too easy to play for the season when you’re playing for nothing.” The Spaniard continued.
‘I have to keep working as much as possible. We stay together as a team and keep working.
‘We have a lot to learn from the manager. I’m not sure to be honest. Teams improve a lot and we stay where we are. It was a good pre-season, but it’s not enough. We have to play for the badge and play for the club’

As a result, Manchester United have suffered back-to-back defeats in their first two Premier League games, after losing to Brighton on the opening weekend of the season.
The club is now rooted at the bottom of the Premier League and no United player has managed to find the net for the club this season.
United then face the daunting task of playing against Liverpool in next weekend’s Monday Night Football.
