A night to forget by Ten Hag boys after they were humiliated in Spain by Sevilla; this comes after a draw of 2-2 in the first leg, held at Old Trafford. In the first leg, Manchester United bottled the first-half lead of 2-0 goals before their own defensive making mistakes sank them to an equalizer.
A defensive lapse between Red Devils goalkeeper David Degea and defender Harry Maguire enabled the host to test the score sheet in the earlier minutes of the game; thanks to En-Nesyri, who seized the opportunity later on, the dying minutes of the game, he netted another to cement their position in the Europa League semi-finals. Another goal from Sevilla was scored by Loïc Badé, a beautiful volley header from a corner kick in the 47 minutes.
Erick Ten Hag has taken responsibility for the team’s disappointing night and vowed to look forward to preparing for the upcoming matches, which are essential for the team’s progress this season.
“Tonight we weren’t ready for the game and that cannot be. This is a great occasion and opportunity to win something and we gave it away. We have to blame ourselves.“Ten Hag.
Manchester United will now face Brighton on Sunday for their FA Cup semi-final tie, and they will look forward to redeeming their lost glory.
