United boss also felt the ball been used in Europa games didn’t help the quality of the display.

I think you can ask any of the players, that ball doesn’t help anyone play football,” he added.

“It’s just different and difficult to play with. You can get one and try!

“But it’s the same for the two teams, of course. But the conditions weren’t nice, the wind and the rain.”

The return leg will take place at Old Trafford on 27 February where the both sides will look to qualify for the last 16.
