It was a narrow escape – Ten Hag speaks on 1-0 win over FC Copenhagen

 


Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag has admitted that they were lucky to defeat FC Copenhagen in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils claimed their first win this season with a 1-0 result, thanks to Harry Maguire’s header.

United however had Andre Onana to thank after he saved Jordan Larsson’s late penalty.

Ten Hag, speaking to TNT Sports after the game, said: “Of course it is incredible and a great night. Especially in the dying second when you concede a penalty, but a brilliant save from Andre Onana.

“Those players, Harry Maguire played a good game and Andre Onana as well. He had an important save just after half-time. We should have got a penalty on Marcus Rashford and I do not know why it was not a penalty.

“It was onside, but he did not give a penalty. Finally we dealt with it and it is a step up. Few weeks ago we got out of rhythm from the referee’s decisions.

“A poor first-half, but we stayed calm and in the second-half we stepped up and made more chances than them. It was a narrow escape in the end.
