Luke Shaw reveals players' private dressing room conversation away from Erik ten Hag

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has revealed that the players had a frank conversation away from Erik ten Hag following the loss to Newcastle.

Manchester United were second best at St James' Park, losing 2-0 to Newcastle, as the Red Devils dropped out of the top four.

Joe Willock got the Magpies' party started, heading home from close range after a swift Newcastle attack.

Callum Wilson then sealed the win, leaping highest to meet Keiran Trippier's set-piece and glance a header in off the post.

Speaking after the full-time whistle, Shaw lifted the lid on the mood within the dressing room, revealing the players were left alone to spill some home truths.

A glum-looking Shaw appeared in his post-match press conference to try and make sense of his side's performance, revealing he had just been talking to his teammates.

The 27-year-old explained: "The players had a chat in the changing room after with no staff around because ultimately it's down to us as players on the pitch.

"Like I said, it was nowhere near good enough and we had to speak out in front of each other and own up to it."

Shaw, reportedly fresh off agreeing a new deal at Old Trafford, critiqued his side's mentality, believing Newcastle simply "wanted it more" than United.

"I do think Newcastle are a very good side, but I don't think they won the game on quality today," said Shaw.

"I think they won it on passion, hunger, desire and attitude.

"They clearly had that higher motivation than us and that can't be possible. They wanted it more, and at Man United that cannot be possible."
