Man Utd news LIVE: Tielemans open to transfer, Ronaldo scores in loss to Young Boys, Lingard blunder haunts Red Devils


Manchester United got their Champions League campaign off to a nightmare start last night.

The Red Devils travelled to Switzerland to face minnows Young Boys.

And it appeared things were about to go swimmingly, when Cristiano Ronaldo gave them a 13th minute lead.

But things turned sour ten minutes before half-time, when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was red carded for a late challenge.

Moumi Ngamaleu grabbed a deserved equaliser for Young Boys in the 66th minute.

And Jesse Lingard’s horror backpass gifted Jordan Siebatcheu a last-gasp winner.

After the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sought to blame the plastic pitch.

He said: “That’s a little bit the astroturf, Aaron gets a touch that’s too far and he gets the ball but he follows through.

“It’s hard to argue against the referee but then he didn’t go through his ankle, he hit him on the top of his foot.”

Coupled with Atalanta’s 2-2 draw with Villarreal, the result leaves Man United BOTTOM of Group F after matchday one.

It also took Solskjaer’s dismal Champions League record as Man United manager to seven defeats from 11 games.
