Diogo Dalot has publicly disagreed with Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag over a “concern” at the club this season.

The United right-back has been one of the standout performers for the team during what has been a dismal campaign overall at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag’s side put up another disappointing performance against Bournemouth on Saturday evening, with a 2-2 draw being a flattering result, all things considered.

Andoni Iraola and his team registered 20 shots against The Reds – it was the 14th time in the Premier League that United have faced at least that number of shots this season.

This has become a concern among the fanbase, but Ten Hag has remained stern in his view that this is not a worry for his team.

Asked if he was concerned about his team conceding too many chances earlier this month, he replied, “As long as we get results, no.”

In a separate interview, he added: “It is ridiculous. We showed we were fourth-ranking goals in conceding and everyone is talking to each other after, we are good and we have good defending as a team and a good goalkeeper so I cannot do nothing.”

Meanwhile., Dalot has a different assessment of the situation, with the Portuguese full-back stating that it is a concern of the squad and that it is currently not good enough.

“It’s been one of our concerns,” he told reporters. “Maybe try to be more compact as a team. Don’t try to make the gap between defenders and midfield too big.

“Sometimes it is and they counter the counter. It’s something we have to improve because it’s been nowhere near good enough for the level of this club.”

“We’ve been showing belief through the season, coming back from down moments. Too many this season. We have to control more and have the game under control, we lose it too many times.”
