Evans: Exit From UCL Will Be Blessing In Disguise For Ten Hag

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has reiterated that the exit of the Red Devils from the UEFA Champions League will be a blessing in disguise for manager, Erik Ten Hag.

Recall that Man United were eliminated from the competition after losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich in their final group game on Tuesday at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag’s side, beaten 3-0 at home to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, needed to beat the Bundesliga champions and hope that there was no winner in the other group game between Copenhagen and Galatasaray.

And even though Bayern were already comfortable winners of Group A, United were still unable to fulfil their part of the bargain on a night of bitter disappointment.

However, in a chat with TV 4 Play, Evans stated that not playing in Europe will afford the Dutch tactician the opportunity to have some of his injured players bak to full fitness.

“He is a fantastic coach and I have no doubts about him. In January we get a new window and a chance to improve the team.

“Not playing in Europe will give him more time. We’ve had a tough period but hopefully we’ll get players back from injuries and get more consistency in the team.

“It would be good for him (ten Hag).”

United won just one of their six group games in the competition and defeat against Bayern means they also missed the chance to drop into the Europa League by finishing third.
