Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot used the artificial pitch as an excuse for the team’s poor performance at AZ Alkmaar.
Speaking in the video clip below, the Portuguese youngster admits a club like Man Utd shouldn’t be blaming results on issues like this, though he does stress that it made things harder.

United could only manage a 0-0 draw and rarely looked capable of grabbing a winner, and Dalot stressed that this affected their game.
We’re not sure MUFC fans will be too impressed with this attitude, with Dalot also saying it was a decent point for the Red Devils – hardly the kind of ambition needed from a club who’ll want to be back in the Champions League against tougher opponents in the near future.
