“Mentality of a child” – Man United player labelled “clown” by Copenhagen defender

Copenhagen centre-back Denis Vavro has labelled one Manchester United player a “clown” as Copenhagen defeated Erik ten Hag’s team 4-3 on Wednesday evening.

Manchester United fell to pieces as they lost 4-3 against FC Copenhagen in the Champions League, sinking their hopes of qualifying for the competition’s knockout stages.

Despite Erik ten Hag branding three refereeing decisions as “debatable”, United were unable to hold on to their 2-0 lead after Marcus Rashford was sent off for stepping on the ankle of Elias Jelert.

However, after the fixture, defender Denis Vavro decided to focus on Alejandro Garnacho, labelling him a “clown” for trying to scuff up the penalty spot after Copenhagen were awarded a spot-kick late into stoppage time of the first half.

Speaking to, Vavro said: “I saw that he tried to do something about the penalty kick, but Kevin Diks stood in front and blocked.

“It is the second time. And then at our ground? To me, he is a clown. He has the mentality of a child when he tries something like this again. In an away game. 

“One thing is at home in the 97th minute, but here in the first half. I don’t understand him trying to do that.”

While Garnacho’s efforts brought fruition in the Old Trafford fixture two weeks ago, it did not stop Diogo Gonçalves from converting the penalty on Wednesday evening to draw the fixture level at 2-2 before half time.
