Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has said he is happy with his team’s display, despite throwing away a two-goal lead against Galatasaray twice in the Champions League.
Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes put United 2-0 up in Turkey and although Galatasaray pulled one back, Scott McTominay made it 3-1.
However, a costly error by Andre Onana allowed the hosts to make it 3-2 before Kerem Akturkoglu rescued the draw.
The result leaves United on the brink of elimination from the Champions League, but Ten Hag managed to find some positives after the final whistle.
“We should have taken three points, it’s clear, but also in other games, home against Galatasaray, away at Copenhagen. I compliment the team and in the same moment I criticise them, and myself as we are not defending good enough. We were leading 3-1 and you can’t afford such mistakes,” he told TNT Sports.
“I am pleased at how dynamic and brave the team was. We created so many chances, especially at the end. Big chances. We played good football.
“I blame myself if we go out. Know that we are in a project and we are improving. We are in the right direction. I know where we have to go, what steps to take and I’m sure we will be successful in the long term but if you want to stay in the Champions League you need to win these games.”
