legend Peter Schmeichel has admitted he was left ‘frustrated’ by ’s performance in the on Thursday.

United at Old Trafford.

Antony hit the bar and picked up a yellow card before being replaced by Facundo Pellistri on 81 minutes.

‘It’s been a mixed bag with Antony as literally all of his have been,’ Schmeichel told the BBC.

‘He created two chances for himself but then he stopped a lot of opportunities by not being more direct.

‘It is frustrating to see someone of his talent not making more of it.’

Speaking more generally about his old club after game, Schmeichel added: ‘Man United are not a top European team yet.

‘I was saying they needed to go for the third goal with 28 minutes played. They needed to up the tempo and get the crowd going again.

‘That is an ability that they haven’t got and it is necessary if you want to build yourself into a top European team.

‘Every time Man United have been successful in Europe, they have had that so that is something that Ten Hag needs to add to the squad.

‘It was a little bit casual. Sevilla were too average in the first half and that made it too easy. Nothing is easy in top European football.

‘No-one gets to this point by luck or being a bad team. Any team that gets an opportunity will take it and they did. Fair dos to Sevilla.

‘That is my worry, the lack of ability to manage the game. We have seen this a couple of times this season. That is something that Ten Hag needs to add to this team.

‘It’s a fair enough result, the way that it developed in the second half. The players of Manchester United have missed a very good opportunity here.

‘A few players today need to have a look at themselves and think about whether they are contributing to the team enough. There are a few players who should be embarrassed with their performances.

‘David de Gea played well, he made two fantastic saves, couldn’t do anything about the goals. He kept Man United in the lead to no avail.

‘Casemiro came back and played really well as well.

‘The best player is the guy who scored two goals, Marcel Sabitzer was really good. His team-mates have let him down. he showed the way and they didn’t catch on to it.

‘It’s 2-2 and as a Man United supporter, I’m really disappointed. This could and should have been a 5-0 win.’
