Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has said his side cannot feel sorry for themselves after their 4-1 loss to Manchester City on the weekend.
Vidic admits it is horrible to lose a derby game, but they have the chance to redeem themselves in their next match against Liverpool.
United are set to take on their long-time rivals in a Capital One Cup match on Wednesday.
Speaking ahead of the game and reflecting on their loss to City, Vidic says they cannot blame manager David Moyes and the players need to look to themselves to improve.
“It is horrible to lose the derby game,” said Vidic.
“It hurts. Trust me, no-one will want to remember this.
“It doesn't matter whether we are losing or winning you will always go back to that question, is the manager good? Are the players good?
“I am not looking at it that way at all.
“This is a club that has a history. This is a club that has players who have won so many titles and the players are all national team players. There is so much experience.
“This loss has hurt, but the most important thing the new manager and the old manager said was that you have to bounce back and win the next game.
“We cannot be sad and feel sorry for ourselves.”
