Manchester (AP) – After RB Leipzig was 0-5 in the Champions League at Manchester United, coach Julian Nagelsmann criticized his team for defensive behavior.
“You can lose a match like that, but then you can’t score the last three goals without resistance, because that has something to do with respect,” the coach told Sky TV. The 15 minutes after the 0: 2 were “the worst in a long time”.
His team’s physicality was lacking in comparison to Man United. “First, the sheer size of the opponents, who were superior to us in many aerial duels, as well as on the ground. The Premier League is clearly more difficult than the Bundesliga when it comes to duels,” Nagelsmann added.
