Thomas Tuchel gives damning verdict on Man Utd as Bayern boss tells Ten Hag three things wrong with Red Devils | The Sun

THOMAS TUCHEL has given a damming verdict on Manchester United after knocking the Red devils out of the Champions League.

The Bayern Munich boss was on the touchline as United fell slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag's side needed to beat Bayern and hope that Copenhagen drew with Galatasaray in order to progress to the last 16.

However, Kingsley Coman's goal condemned United to the bottom spot in Group A.

In Tuchel's post-match press conference, he claimed that there are three things wrong at United at the moment.

The former Chelsea boss argued that the club's injury list has not helped Ten Hag and that players are lacking "personality".

Tuchel also claimed that United are not able to change games with players from the bench.

He said: "Almost always I feel sympathy for the other coach.

"But within competition, we try everything to win our matches, this is why we are and this is what it is, these are the rules of high-level sports, we play at the highest level to win our matches.

"Of course, I have sympathy.

"I think he has a lot of key players injured for a decisive match now, that you can see then they lack this kind of personality and also the quality and maybe the width to change games from the bench. I think you could see that.

"Yeah, it's not an easy time but I'm pretty sure he knows what to do next, he knows how to influence his team, he does not need my advice. He does not need my clapping on the shoulders.

"He's experienced enough to go through it. I had not such a nice moment last Saturday, sometimes you feel very lonely as a coach I can tell you.

"In general, I feel sympathy for all of my colleagues because I know what it takes to keep a thing going."

United struggled to threaten Bayern during the match as striker Rasmus Hojlund cut an isolated figure.

The Norweigan only managed 16 touches against the Bundesliga champions as he failed to get into the game.
