Ten Hag sends warning to Man Utd over Sheriff Tiraspol quality

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has warned his players not to underestimate Sheriff Tiraspol ahead of their Europa League group stage clash on Thursday.

The Ukrainian side beat Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League group stage last season.

When asked about his thoughts of Sheriff, ten Hag told reporters: “It’s quite clear.

“They beat Real Madrid, they beat Shaktar Donetsk last year, so they are capable of doing it and we have to make it our game.

“We are conscious of that fact so we have to be ready and prepared for that game because it is serious and it is a decent opponent and we have to play our best to get the win.”

Quizzed on the pressure his team faces after losing their opening group game, ten Hag added: “Pressure is for every game. For us it is the same because we have to win every game.

“It’s clear, when you lose the first game you have to win the second, so we know what our task is.”
