Pochettino frustrated by loss
Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino was left frustrated after
his side fought hard but lost 2-1 at Old Trafford.
The visitors took a shock third minute lead via Jay Rodriguez
after a poor back pass from Michael Carrick.
Wayne Rooney put United well in control with a quick-fire brace
before the Saints dominated the second half but could not find the
equaliser their play deserved.
The defeat leaves the Saints hovering three points above the
drop zone and Pochettino told Sky Sports: “I’m very frustrated and
angry because I always like to win.
“Having said that we knew that Manchester United are an amazing
team with quality players.
“Judging how we played in the second half I think we deserved a
bit more than leaving here with nothing.”
Opposing boss Alex Ferguson said the Saints were the best team
to come to Old Trafford this season but Pochettino would have
preferred points on the board.
“His words don’t really serve as a consolation to me,” added
“But I want to say thank you for those words and it also
reinforces the way that we want the team to go forward.”
