Angry Man Utd Legend Rio Ferdinand Warns Andre Onana Over Terrible Mistake vs. Bayern Munich in UCLFootball
Fans Roast Varane as UCL Comments He Made Before Man United vs Galatasaray Come Back to Bite Him
- Raphael Varane claimed on Monday that Man United have the quality to win the Champions League
- However, his claims have seemingly come back to haunt him following United's 3-2 defeat vs. Galatasaray
- The Red Devils currently sit bottom of Group A with no point
Raphael Varane may have spoken too soon after Champions League comments he made before Man United's meeting with Galatasaray seemingly came back to bite him.
United hosted the Turkish giants on Tuesday night at Old Trafford for their second match in Group A.
The Red Devils were desperate to secure a positive result to get their European campaign back on track, having lost the opening game against Bayern Munich.
However, this was not the case, as Erik ten Hag's charges were humbled by the visitors, with Rasmus Hojlund's brace being rendered a mere consolation.
The Guardian reports that goals from Wilfried Zaha, Kerem Akturkoglu, and Mauro Icardi cancelled out Hojlund's two goals.
The defeat leaves United bottom of their pool behind FC Copenhagen, Galatasaray, and Bayern Munich.
Varane's comments return to haunt him
United's defeat came just hours after Varane claimed that United could win this season's Champions League title.
Sportbible reports that the centre-back made the claims on Monday, hours before the Red Devils' meeting with Galatasaray.
“Yes, I think so, I think the quality is in the squad. The competition is difficult, you have to take care of every detail, but we have a team of quality and of good mentality," he said.
“We have to make some improvements, it was not the start to the season we expected, but I still believe we have the quality to compete with the best teams in the world," he added.
Onana takes responsibility for Man Utd's defeat to BayernFootball
However, his comments did not age well, with the defeat to Galatasaray seeing the Frenchman get roasted by fans online.
"With this performance, Varane still thinks we can win the Champions League?"
"Didn’t Raphael Varane recently say that Man United have the quality to win the Champions League? I woke up to news that these Red Devils lost 3-2 to Galatasaray at home and are now bottom of their group after two matchdays. This club can heal people’s depression."
"Rapha Varane thinks we have the quality to win the Champions League. What a joke."
"And Varane said we are good enough to win the Champions League also. Doubt it."
