‘You’re probably last one who should apologise’ – Man Utd fans show support after emotional plea from star

Man Utd endured a miserable night on Tuesday as they crashed out of the Champions League following defeat to Sevilla at Old Trafford.

After a goalless first leg in Spain, the Red Devils were heavy favourites going into the second meeting with home advantage and having come off an impressive win over Liverpool last weekend.

However, Wissam Ben Yedder had other ideas as he made a decisive impact off the bench for the visitors, leaving Jose Mourinho and his players to analyse a disastrous night.

The Portuguese tactician took the brunt of the criticism as Man Utd simply looked to be set up too negatively, with Marouane Fellaini starting ahead of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay a perfect example of that.

Nevertheless, the players also didn’t perform to their expected high standards, just as they did against Liverpool, and so the blame has to be shared among the entire group as they’re all culpable for the disappointment.

One player who did put in an impressive shift with one key last-ditch tackle in particular standing out with the scoreline still at a precarious point was Eric Bailly, and as seen in his tweet below, he issued an emotional apology to the supporters for their loss.

It doesn’t appear as though the Ivory Coast international was in the firing line when it comes to the Man Utd faithful though, as the majority of the responses that he received were positive.

The 23-year-old returned from injury last weekend, and although there are certain mistakes in his performances that need to be cut out, he can’t be faulted for desire, effort and overall defensive quality.

That seems to be reflected in the comments below as he received plenty of support from the fans, while Romelu Lukaku and David de Gea were also seemingly exempt from criticism for most too.
