Fans brand Erik ten Hag a ‘savage’ after Man Utd manager’s brutal six-word verdict on Bayern Munich star

FANS labelled Erik ten Hag a “savage” ahead of Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

That’s after the Dutchman delivered a brutal six-word verdict on one of Thomas Tuchel’s star players.

Fans called Erik ten Hag ‘savage’ for his brutal put-down of a Bayern Munich star

United travelled to Germany on Wednesday night looking to kickstart their group stage campaign with a bang.

An injury crisis saw the Red Devils name THREE goalies on the bench.

And Ten Hag’s rag-tag starting XI came up against numerous all-stars including England captain Harry Kane, midfield ace Joshua Kimmich and former top transfer target Kim Min-Jae.

However, United’s Carabao Cup-winning manager appeared to have just one Bayern player in his sights ahead of kick-off.

The Bundesliga champions don’t boast many weak links.

But Ten Hag identified flying left-back Alphonso Davies as a possible problem for Bayern’s backline.

The Canadian is known for his exciting runs going forward.

And Ten Hag delivered a brutal six-word verdict when analysing Davies’ actions in his own penalty box.

The United boss told TNT Sports: “Davies is not a good defender.”

This prompted a slew of comments from fans calling Ten Hag a “savage” for his put-down.

One said: “No way did he say that??”

Another declared: “Yo that’s crazy, Ten Hag firing shots.”

One noted: “Ten Hag playing mind games, love to see it.”

Another added: “Why would you say that before the game? Basically handing Bayern a team talk.”

Ten Hag’s words came back to haunt him early on when Davies made a world-class tackle to prevent Facundo Pellistri from scoring after just four minutes.

Christian Eriksen’s follow-up was then brilliantly saved by Bayern goalie Sven Ulreich.

And Ten Hag was left standing on the touchline with his head in his hands.
