Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has accused some of his teammates of going into “hiding” during their 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in the Champions League.
Two goals to substitute Yasin Ben Yedder saw the Red Devils crash out of the knockout competition, while Lukaku grabbed a consolation goal.
And Lukaku believes he and his teammates failed to make the most of a strong start to the contest.
“Something was wrong with some players, some players were hiding,” he told BT Sport.
“I think we started the game well, but then we let them get a bit of control in the game. We had a few half-chances but we didn’t score.
“Then they scored the first goal and from that moment on we tried to chase the game. Then they scored the second one which was a big blow. At the end we kept pushing, but it was not enough.
“We knew we have a lot of quality in our team but today we didn’t show it. It’s difficult for us but we have to bounce back and we have one trophy to go and chase.
“That’s the FA Cup but we wanted to go very far in the Champions League because that’s what a club like Manchester United needs to do. But we couldn’t do it today and that’s why we’re disappointed.”
