Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag claimed Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies is “not a great defender” ahead of the two sides’ clash.

Ten Hag claimed he started Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri because Bayern Munich left-back Davies is vulnerable pace.

Ten Hag told TNT Sports: “Davies is very offensive, a lot of speed, Pelli can match that. He can match that defending but also offensive. He has the capabilities to also go into attack. Davies is not a great defender, so I think it’s a good game for him.”

Manchester United lost 4-3 to Bayern Munich despite the tactics by Manchester United boss Ten Hag.
