Manchester United have only had a few stand-out performances in a season of mediocrity but last night against Bayern Munich, the players really earned their stripes.
Both defensively and in attack, it was a committed performance that deserved at least a point because for all of Bayern Munich’s possession, they struggled to break us down and when we attacked, we did so with real conviction.
As has been the case all season, fans inside Old Trafford were superb. The atmosphere was up there with the best this season and a lot of the players have sent their thanks to the fans for helping make the atmosphere what it was.
Rooney: “Thanks for all the support last night, great atmosphere at Old Trafford. Looking forward to the 2nd leg!”
Thanks to our fans for an unbelievable atmosphere. Great game, only half time though…
