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