Erik ten Hag message
After blowing a two-goal lead, Manchester United now sit bottom of their Champions League group with two games to play, one of which is against Bayern Munich.
United are also out of the League Cup and floundering in the Premier League, leading questions to be asked over Erik ten Hag’s future.
Speaking post-Copenhagen, Ten Hag addressed the mood of his squad after yet another loss:
“Every time there is a spirit, there is a fight and I said to the lads it will turn, one moment in the season it will turn in our favour,” he said.
“Football is a game of mistakes, I don’t say we did everything right but I take a lot of positives, even with 10 men we are dictating the game. We played very good. We are very disappointed in the end we take nothing from this because it should have been different.
“Again, the attitude was great from the lads. They fought as a team, together, all on one page, fought for every yard on the pitch, shoulder for shoulder. So I can’t make any criticism on the team for that.”
