“Doesn’t do anything…” – Peter Schmeichel blasts Man United player for performance vs Galatasaray



| Last Updated:


Peter Schmeichel was left unimpressed by one Manchester United substitute during their 3-3 draw against Galatasaray away in the Champions League.

The Reds were in comfortable positions during multiple periods in the game but ultimately gave away a two-goal lead and now qualification from the group is unlikely.

United need to win against Bayern Munich and also need Galatasaray and Copenhagen to draw in their last encounter.

Away in Turkey, there were some players who performed very poorly in the second half when control was lost and the game almost turned into a basketball game.

Whilst Andre Onana essentially threw away the victory, former United goalkeeper was disappointed by the impact of Anthony Martial, who replaced Rasmus Hojlund midway through the second half.

“When you’re 2-0 up – and it’s not the first time we’re 2-0 up in this tournament – you kill the game. You make sure the other team can’t get into it. You keep the ball, you make sure you don’t make mistakes – and a lot of mistakes were made today,” he told CBS Sports.

“And of course, you also have to look at players like when Hojlund came off, a lot of the pressure from the very, very front disappeared. The guy (Martial) he (Ten Hag) put in doesn’t do anything, where you had before someone who works really, really hard for the team up front all of a sudden you don’t have that pressure.

“And that gives the other team a lot of opportunities to pass the ball around. So there are many, many things you can look at, but, again, if you score this amount of goals you expect to have more than one point.”

Martial scored against Everton on the weekend and had a chance late on in RAMS Park, but couldn’t get his shot away.
