Thomas Tuchel sends Manchester United message

United go into their final fixture at the bottom of Group A, with just one win and four points to their name.

As a result, Erik ten Hag’s men must beat Bayern at Old Trafford and hope that FC Copenhagen draw with Galatasaray - any other results will see them eliminated from the Champions League, while a Copenhagen win and United win would but the Red Devils into the Europa League.

Ahead of the tie, Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has sent a warning to the Manchester outfit.

His side lost 5-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend and Tuchel is looking for a reaction at Old Trafford:

“We underestimated the danger of the situation and completely gave the game away very early on,” Tuchel said after the defeat. “But I have confidence in my team.

“There’s no point in bad-mouthing everything now. It continues on Tuesday [at] Old Trafford. We need a reaction there.”
