Manchester United‘s woes in the Champions League continued with a disheartening 3-2 defeat against Galatasaray at Old Trafford.
The club currently finds itself at the bottom of Group A, having failed to secure a win in their initial two games against Bayern Munich and Galatasaray.
Disappointment Evident on the Pitch
Following their latest defeat, the immediate reaction from Alejandro Garnacho, who made a substitute appearance in the game, painted a grim picture of Manchester United’s current state.
Garnacho was visibly dejected, lying on the pitch with his hands on his head, and was eventually lifted to his feet by Anthony Martial.
Despite the attempts at consolation, the 19-year-old remained in a despondent state, with Raphael Varane offering support.
Pressure Mounting on Erik ten Hag
The pressure on manager Erik ten Hag has intensified as the club has suffered five losses across all competitions since the beginning of last month.
Ten Hag has already lost six games this season, and there are concerns about his job security.
A Difficult Period for Manchester United
In response to the club’s struggles, Erik ten Hag emphasized the need for unity and resilience, acknowledging that Manchester United is going through a tough period.
He expressed his determination to address the challenges collectively and stated that there are no excuses for the errors made.
The team is focused on improving their performance and winning games, with their next fixture against Brentford on Saturday.
As Manchester United occupies 10th place in the Premier League, the club faces an uphill battle to regain its form and success.
