PAUL POGBA admitted Manchester United players disrespected the shirt in their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Everton.
Pog, who played one of the worst matches of his United career at Goodison Park, also criticised the body language of his team-mates.
In an extraordinary interview with Sky in the build up to Wednesday’s Manchester derby the £89m midfielder apologised to United fans for his performance.
Pog said: “It is not good enough. Losing a game is bad and we don’t it in the race for the top four.
“Losing 4-0 as well, I am not disrespecting Everton, but the way we played and the performance of myself and the team and everyone was disrespectful.
“We did not respect ourselves, the club and the fans. When you wear this shirt and play for this club it is because you deserve it, and when you deserve it you have to respect the culture.
“With the history of this club, you have give everything.
“I don’t want to be harsh with my words but the body language of the players was not good enough for the shirt.”
Pog also admitted that United’s players owe the fans a performance in Wednesday’s clash with Manchester City at Old Trafford.
United could stop their great rivals returning to the top of the Premier League if they can stop them winning.
Pog added: “You have to give your life on the pitch.
“When you enjoy being on the pitch you have to sweat and work for this shirt.
“I don’t know if it’s enough but the only way to apologise is to give everything.
“We can lose, but we have to give everything. That is how we should apologise to the fans. We cannot perform like we did.
“It is not good for us, for Manchester United, for the story of the club, for the fans – it is not good.”
