Maguire reacts to Aaron Wan-Bissaka red card

Aaron Wan-Bissaka was unlucky to be given his marching orders during Manchester United's 2-1 Champions League defeat to Young Boys in Switzerland on Tuesday, according to captain Harry Maguire.

In the early parts of the game, Cristiano Ronaldo put the Red Devils ahead, but the game was altered when Wan-Bissaka was sent off for a late challenge on Christopher Martins.

Maguire said that he 'couldn't really comment' on the challenge, but he seemed to imply that his partner did not deserve to be eliminated from the European competition.

"I can't really comment because I haven't seen it back. I'm sure in slow motion every tackle you can make something for it. Any tackle that's a foul you can say they go over the ball, but I can't really comment," journalist Mark Critchley quotes the Man United captain as saying.

Young Boys equalized in the 66th minute with Moumi Ngamaleu, but Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu scored the winner in second-half stoppage time, after a Jesse Lingard mistake.

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as manager, the Red Devils have now lost seven of their eleven Champions League games.
