Fans believe that Bayern Munich is not taking Manchester United seriously after a training ground video emerged

Another commented: “Bayern are not taking training for Manchester United seriously.”

A third simply wrote: “Training against Manchester United.”

A fourth user had a different view, stressing: “This is what they want Man United to think. It’s a classic Bavarian move.”

Another added: “They know is it’s a walk over game.”

A sixth person violated, writing: “Playing United is their training game.”

“I know Manchester United are having a difficult moment at the moment, but sometimes teams like that are dangerous because they’re always looking to come back in a big way,” he toldSports Illustrated Deutschlandahead of his first Champions League game for Bayern.

“So we have to be prepared for them and of course we want to get the crowd behind us as early as possible on Wednesday in front of our home crowd and approach the game with a lot of intensity.

“The Champions League is always special and my first game with Bayern Munich will stay with me – so I hope it goes well.”
