‘Madness’: Erik ten Hag told exactly where his tactics failed vs Galatasaray by Manchester United legend.

“Madness”: Manchester United legend Erik ten Hag revealed precisely where his tactics faltered against Galatasaray.The 3-3 draw between Manchester United and Galatasaray will undoubtedly go down in Champions League group stage annals, but the Reds must take the time to determine where they went wrong.As is typical in draws, both teams scored ceaselessly throughout the 90 minutes, and it is unsurprising that six goals were scored. However, one of the teams will feel as though they lost two points in the process.

Having relinquished a two-goal lead, United has the upper hand in this situation. Such sentiments will be all too familiar during this European campaign, given that Erik ten Hag’s goal-scoring error and the hosts’ commanding lead for significant portions of games contributed to defeats such as the 4-3 loss to Copenhagen and the 3-2 loss to Galatasaray in October.Scholes’ evaluation

After the final siren in Istanbul, Paul Scholes, a former Manchester United player who won two Champions League titles with the club at Old Trafford, commented on the match and attempted to dissect its progression.

 

“I doubt I’ve ever witnessed a game comparable to that… He began, “It was absolute insanity from the very beginning to the very end.” “They [United] began exceptionally well, leading two-nil, but then lapsed into a lapse in discipline. Away from home, it is extremely difficult to win football games in Europe. Despite this, they continued to go for their throats and attempt to score goals when they conceded one – a truly terrible goal. Clearly, the goalkeeper endured a harrowing evening tonight, but that is not how you win games in Europe.It has never occurred to me that a European team could win a game away from home while hurling everything at their opponents, and they certainly need to win. You are up 2-0 and 3-1; utilize your positions. Simply unwind. Regards Scott, McTominay is exploding in all directions… “Now, in all honesty, you have to give him credit for scoring the goal, and you have to give the team half the credit for constantly wanting to score goals, but it simply lacked the discipline necessary to win a big game in Europe.”

 

“I doubt I’ve ever witnessed a game comparable to that… “It was complete and utter insanity”
