The Manchester United coach went on to praise his team’s performance on the day, despite the disappointing outcome. “We played very well today and didn’t deserve to lose, but it happened,” he said. He acknowledged his team’s strong defensive organization and their pressing throughout the match.

The match saw Manchester United up against a strong team, Bayern, who according to ten Hag, “even when they are not at the top of their game, have individuals who can exploit every single moment.” Unfortunately for Manchester United, this is exactly what took place.

In spite of the loss, ten Hag commended his team’s spirit and effort. “My players gave their all, the spirit was evident. I have to really give credit to the team, pay them great compliments for the way they worked together, as a team, against this Bayern,” he concluded to TNT Sports.
