Victor Lindelof reveals how the Manchester United dressing room reacted to Bayern Munich loss



| Last Updated:


Victor Lindelof has explained how the Manchester United squad have reacted to the Bayern Munich loss on Wednesday evening.

It was another disappointing result for The Reds despite the 4-3 scoreline flattering Erik ten Hag’s side on the evening. Casemiro’s late double was not enough to salvage anything from the Champions League game after Rasmus Hojlund scored his first goal for the club.

The defensive side of United’s team have struggled so far this term. Victor Lindelof has started the last three games after Raphae Varane suffered injury against Nottingham Forest.

The Sweden captain has shown support to goalkeeper Andre Onana, who was at fault for the Bundesliga champions’ first goal of the game and has also explained that there was frustration within the squad after the encounter.

“Mistakes are part of football. It happens, but it’s all about how we can bounce back from that,” he told MUTV. “I think we started the game well and then obviously we conceded the first goal. After that we just have to keep doing our job and keep playing the football that we want to.

“We came out in the second half and we wanted to give it a good try and we managed to score three goals. But like I said, in the end we didn’t get the result we wanted. So of course it’s very frustrating.”

However, the defender also stated that he and the squad are now focused on bouncing back against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

“In the Premier League, it’s always tough. It’s all about the recovery and like you said, we’re staying here tonight and we will try to get a good night’s sleep and recover well.

“We then fly back to Manchester to prepare for the game on Saturday. Everyone is eager to play that game as well, to bounce back and get three points and hopefully keep going after that.”

United have lost three out of their opening five Premier League fixtures this season but will be favourites against Vincent Kompany’s side, who are yet to register a win so far this term.
