Erik ten Hag questioned by Manchester United chiefs for Bayern Munich selection decision



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag has been questioned by Manchester United’s bosses for his selection decision as Manchester United faced Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Manchester United‘s Champions League campaign started with a 4-3 loss away against Bayern Munich, with Erik ten Hag‘s Reds suffering their third defeat in a row at the time.

Fortunately, they have since made up for the loss with a tight 1-0 win over Burnley, but it has been revealed that the club’s chiefs have questioned Ten Hag on his choice to fly four goalkeepers to Munich as part of the squad.

According to The Daily Mail, some non-football United staff have been told that they “cannot sign off on anything not agreed within pre-planned budgets” due to the current FFP rulings that the club are suffering from.

That has led to some in the club wondering if flying all of Altay Bayındır, Tom Heaton, Andrè Onana, and Radek Vitek was necessary, considering these restraints and the expense it would have cost for all four players to travel.

United ultimately lost the fixture due to an initial goalkeeping error from Onana, but the overall performance was one that was criticised by many.

The 4-3 scoreline somewhat flattered the Reds, who scored two goals in the final few minutes of the fixture to reduce the deficit, but with the game touted as the hardest one the club will face, they may still be able to qualify for the knockout rounds with no problems if they win their fixtures against FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray.

The club are set to face Crystal Palace in the third round of the Carabao Cup as they begin their defence of the trophy Ten Hag won last season.
