Cristiano Ronaldo used social media to express his displeasure at Manchester United’s European defeat on Tuesday.
Cristiano Ronaldo criticized Manchester United’s Champions League late collapse against Young Boys, but the superstar is expecting a swift comeback from the Red Devils.
After Jordan Siebatcheu pounced on Jesse Lingard’s botched backpass in the 95th minute, Ronaldo made it three goals in two games since returning to United. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 10 men still lost 2-1. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 10 men still suffered a 2-1 loss in their first game back at United.
Ronaldo opened the goal in the 13th minute of the Group F match, equaling former Real Madrid teammate Iker Casillas’ record of 177 Champions League appearances. Young Boys were Ronaldo’s 36th different opponent in the Champions League, a record he currently holds with Lionel Messi.
However, United paid the price as full-back Wan-Bissaka was sent off 10 minutes before half-time, with Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu’s 66th-minute goal bringing Young Boys level. United have only lost their opening match in a Champions League season twice, the last time being in 2015-16 under Louis van Gaal, when they fell 2-1 to PSV.
“It was a difficult game on a difficult surface.” We found ourselves down to ten men away from home, but we looked comfortable in the game,” United captain Harry Maguire said MUTV, with the team still facing Villarreal and Atalanta in the group. “We gave up a sloppy goal that was really unlucky for us.” Despite the fact that we weren’t playing our best game and didn’t pose the greatest danger at the opposite end of the pitch, we looked extremely sturdy, didn’t allow many opportunities, and they went on to win.
