Manchester United defender Raphael Varane has confirmed that neither he nor his team-mates will point fingers at each other after their loss to Atletico Madrid.
Man United crashed out of the Champions League after losing 1-0 in the round of 16 second leg to Atletico at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
The first tie ended 1-1 at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano two weeks, with Anthony Elanga scoring a late equaliser, but the Spanish side proceeded to the last eight after Lodi scored late in the first half at Manchester.
Many suggestions have been heard after the disappointing defeat. The likes of Paul Scholes questioned Man United’s decision to appoint Ralf Rangnick, insisting that his old club must appoint an elite manager in the summer if they are to challenge for titles.
Fans have since accused the likes of Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire and Paul Pogba for their drab performances that led to the defeat.
Varane insists he and his team-mates wouldn’t blame each other for their disappointing loss to the La Liga side and vows that they will continue to put out their best until the very end of the season.
“We will not point fingers, fight each other, or complain,” said Varane on Instagram. “We can reflect on the season when the battle is finished.
“The atmosphere last night was incredible, we will fight for everything for this club until the last minute of the season.
“Failure is a foundation of victory. Proud to defend Manchester United.”
Man United have only the top-four to fight for this season as they are poised on finishing the season without a single trophy.
