In a post-match press conference following Manchester United’s 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League opener at the Allianz Arena on September 20, 2023, manager Erik Ten Hag emphasized that the team’s defeat stemmed from their failure to capitalize on the opportunities they had in the initial moments of the match, and he called for the team to shoulder the responsibility for the loss. He had this to say;
Every game is huge. We have to make our own luck. Nobody is going to help you. You see the first 25 minutes we were good, but we didn’t score so we have to stay in the game, but look at the first goal, you have to make it harder to get the shot.
He also had this to say about Andre Onana’s interview;
it is good that Onana is taking responsibility, but it’s about a team, we bounce back as a team.
Will United bounce back from defeat when they play Burnley in the Premier League?
