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.”
