2 min read

Ralph Hasenhuttl, Southampton manager, said Man United are weak at tracking back and looked to exploit that inability in their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Gary Neville, a former Manchester United player, and current Sky Sports pundit, highlighted the Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl’s post-match comments.

Manchester United drew 1-1 at home against the Saints on another frustrating Saturday afternoon, putting them out of contention for a top-four finish.

Jadon Sancho scored his maiden goal in front of the Old Trafford fans, but it was canceled out three minutes later by Che Adams’ attempt.

When the final whistle blew, boos erupted around United’s stadium, as the club’s supporters vented their displeasure with the club’s third consecutive 1-1 stalemate and overall lackluster performance.

Neville responded to Hasenhuttl’s post-match analysis on Twitter by quoting him, before adding: “Imagine being a Manchester United player and having a respected opposition manager say that about you.”

What Ralph Hasenhuttl said

Southampton head coach Ralph Hasenhuttl claimed the Saints tried to take advantage of Manchester United’s inability to track runners during their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Ralph Hasenhuttl said ‘it’s not a big secret’ Manchester United are weak at tracking back, as Paul Pogba gets singled out for failing to follow his runner.

Hasnehuttl has built the Saints into a tight-knit squad that focuses on high-pressing and fluid play, something United fans are eager to witness from interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s side.

The Austrian claimed that the star-studded hosts lacked the motivation and tenacity to regain the ball when they lost it.

“It’s not a big secret that when they lose the ball, the reverse gears are not the best from everyone,” Hasenhuttl said.
