Talking to talkSPORT, Andros Townsend had a remarkable share about Manchester United’s first goal against Sevilla.
8 minutes in the confrontation between Sevilla and Manchester United, David De Gea had a careless pass for Harry Maguire – who was surrounded by 3 players on the Sevilla side. Immediately, Maguire lost the ball and the home team got the opening goal thanks to Youssef En-Nesyri’s goal.
Commenting on this situation, midfielder Andros Townsend shared:
“Unbelievably poor ball, really. They don’t need to concede a goal like that.”
“A really careless situation coming from Man United.”
When you have the ball at your feet, you are the boss.”
“Don’t pass the ball to Maguire if he risks losing the ball.”
Entering the second half, De Gea continued to make a serious mistake with a situation of ice coming out of the penalty area and handling it wrong, directly providing the opportunity for En-Nesyri to put the ball into an empty net and seal the victory 3 -0 for Seville.
In the context that Man Utd and De Gea are negotiating a contract extension, the disastrous performance of the Spanish star will certainly significantly affect the stance of the Old Trafford team.
