AZ midfielder Fredrik Midtsjø: I was expecting more from Man Utd players

AZ Alkmaar midfielder Fredrik Midtsjø admits he was surprised by how poor Manchester United were last night.

Midtsjø featured in last night's 0-0 Europa League draw.

He later told VG, "When you grew up watching United under Sir Alex Ferguson, you used to say it was entertaining for just about every match.

"But what we were expecting today was not what I saw. I was expecting more from the boys we faced.

"It may be the intensity of the game, that they are missing a bit. It's a bit too easy to play them out. But it is easy for me to stand here and say it and have made a good fight. We made it difficult for them."
