Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag has come out to say that he was pleased with his players in their latest UCL match. This is coming despite seeing his team twice throw away a two-goal lead at Galatasaray and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the fact is that the team is not defending good enough in UCL matches, and that is the reason for the constant mistakes despite taking leads during games.
Erik added that he was pleased with the bravery his players showed away from home, and he’ll blame himself if MUFC crash out.
His words, “We should have taken three points, it’s clear, but also in other games, home against Galatasaray, away at Copenhagen. I compliment the team and in the same moment I criticise them, and myself as we are not defending good enough. We were leading 3-1 and you can’t afford such mistakes.
I am pleased at how dynamic and brave the team was. We created so many chances, especially at the end. Big chances. We played good football.
I blame myself if we go out. Know that we are in a project and we are improving. We are in the right direction. I know where we have to go, what steps to take and I’m sure we will be successful in the long term but if you want to stay in the Champions League you need to win these games.”
Manchester United Football Club, commonly referred to as Man United or simply United, is a professional football club based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. The club competes in the Premier League, the top division in the English football league system.
Nicknamed the Red Devils, they were founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, but changed their name to Manchester United in 1902. After a spell playing in Clayton, Manchester, the club moved to their current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910.
Alex Ferguson and his assistant Archie Knox arrived from Aberdeen on the day of Atkinson’s dismissal, and guided the club to an 11th-place finish in the league. Despite a second-place finish in 1987–88, the club was back in 11th place the following season. Reportedly on the verge of being dismissed, Ferguson’s job was saved by victory over Crystal Palace in the 1990 FA Cup final.
The following season, Manchester United claimed their first UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. That triumph allowed the club to compete in the European Super Cup for the first time, where United beat European Cup holders Red Star Belgrade 1–0 at Old Trafford. The club appeared in two consecutive League Cup finals in 1991 and 1992, beating Nottingham Forest 1–0 in the second to win that competition for the first time as well.
