The Dutch military leader expressed his regret when MU fell to victory, and urged his students to quickly regain their spirits to prepare for the next matches.
MU lost the advantage against Sevilla.
“Lisandro Martinez will not play this weekend. His injury is not in the Achilles area. I will not say anything more until the results from the medical team,” coach Erik ten Hag said.
“Raphael Varane is also injured. If both he and Licha can’t play, the rest must be ready. Remember we are participating in 3 arenas,” added the Dutch military leader.
In the match against Sevilla, the number one center-back pair of MU (Varane, Martinez) had to leave the field because of injury. Even the “Red Devils” had to play with 10 people in the last 10 minutes of the match, because they no longer had the right to change personnel, and then had to receive the second goal in 90+2 injury time.
Talking about using all 5 substitutions, coach Ten Hag said: “Varane was injured. After that, Martial also lost his fitness. Bruno Fernandes received a yellow card, so did Antony. I have no choice. have no choice but to make adjustments”.
“We should have scored the third goal. Facundo Pellistri came on and put in a good performance. The last 10 minutes of the game everything was against us. Both goals were unlucky. In life, fortune Black can come to you at any time,” the former Ajax captain added.
When MU led Sevilla 2-0 to the 84th minute, fans dreamed of tickets to the Europa League semi-finals. However, the La Liga representative took the opportunity to score 2 goals in the 85th and 90+2 minutes.
After 3 times facing Sevilla in the knockout round of the European Cup, MU still cannot win. The only good news that coach Ten Hag gives fans is that Marcus Rashford can return to join his teammates to Spain on April 21.
