When the Champions League draw was done, no one expected Manchester United will finish behind Copenhagen and Galatasaray.
Bayern Munich and Manchester United were expected to qualify from the group, but United ended up finishing bottom of the group.
Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has reacted to Manchester United finishing bottom of the group.
Asked if he is surprised by United finishing bottom of Group A, Tuchel replied: “Yeah, this is a huge club and it’s of course not what you expect when you see the group, you immediately think that also Manchester United is challenging for the win of the group and for a place in the round of 16.
“But in my experience I can tell you it’s a difficult group, it looks now very clear for us in terms of points, the distance we earned in the points between us and the rest but the matches were all very, very tight and the results were narrow, the opponents were difficult and different styles of play to play against.
“You could see in the results everything was possible today for Untied and in some of the matches it changed in a blink of an eye for them. They were pretty comfortable in Istanbul with a lead and they gave it away. They were comfortable in the lead in Copenhagen, which could have been decisive matches.
“Like I say, it’s a big club, it’s also a big team, dangerous team, that’s why we’re happy we could prove a point, we could show a reaction and we can prove our reaction with a result that is amazing and we are happy for that.”
