Amid World Cup, ten Hag’s United lose a friendly to Cadiz

Did you think yesterday was an off-day for all the football fans? Well, your guess is half right. There was friendly football action happening at Cadiz, Spain, miles away from Qatar, where the entire world’s eyes are at the moment.

Manchester United were in action against Spanish football club Cadiz yesterday. And the La Liga club managed to beat the English Premier League giants 4-2 in the first match for the club since axing Cristiano Ronaldo.

The game saw Cadiz take a lead of 2 goals within the first 15 minutes, thanks to Carlos Garcia and Anthony Lozano’s wonderful strikes. However, the English side managed to get one back, with Anthony Martial converting a penalty. The hosts, Cadiz, went into the break with a comfortable 2-1 lead.

As the second half began, Manchester United’s Kobbie Mainoo scored the equaliser to make the scoreline 2-2. However, the club’s defence faltered since. They made a lot of defensive errors that cost them two goals; one from Ruben Sobrino and another from Tomás Alarcon.

Erik ten Hag, the coach of Manchester United, was disappointed with the team’s efforts. Speaking with MUTV after the game, the Manchester United manager spoke about the game in general. ‘More negatives than positives’ was the real takeaway point from the interview.

Manchester United will next face Spanish club Real Betis on 10th December. The club will try to make the most out of this game.
