Alejandro Garnacho had allegedly ‘forced Coman into a billboard’

Erik ten Hag’s squad failed to meet the criteria to advance to the final round, as Copenhagen also secured a 1-0 victory against Galatasaray in a simultaneous match.

As a result, Manchester United found themselves at the bottom of the Champions League table for the first time since the 2005-2006 season, leading to their elimination from the tournament. With only the Premier League and the FA Cup remaining this season, the defeat was compounded by the significant setback of losing midfielder Harry Maguire and defender Luke Shaw to injuries during the match. Maguire experienced groin pain without any collision, while Shaw displayed signs of tearing his posterior thigh muscle. These two players, integral to the current “Red Devils” lineup, face an uncertain status as they prepare to visit Liverpool’s Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday, December 17.


The contrasting performance between the two teams was underscored by the lackluster display of striker Rasmus Hojlund. Manchester United’s attacking hope touched the ball only nine times in the first half, the fewest among all players on the field. This was attributed to the inability of his fellow midfielders to provide the 20-year-old striker with opportunities. Creative players such as Alejandro Garnacho, Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay, and Antony collectively had just one chance to set up their teammates for a goal in the entire match.
