Baut Verhost’s dream has finally come true.
Manchester United won 4-1 in the first leg of the round of 16 of the European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) against Real Betis held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England at 5:00 am (Korean time) on the 10th.
Manchester United, who suffered a 0-7 disaster in the last Liverpool expedition, needed a victory to reverse the atmosphere. Coach Eric Ten Hag chose the starting list for the match against Liverpool, showing his will to wash away the defeat against Liverpool.
Verhost, who suffered from controversy after the Liverpool match, was naturally a starter. Verhost suffered from the ‘Anfield Controversy’ after the match against Liverpool. ‘THIS IS ANFIELD’ in the tunnel at the entrance of Anfield Stadium is a symbol of Liverpool players preparing for a decisive battle.
As the controversy deepened, Verhost himself explained. “I don’t usually react to the media, but this time I need it because United fans are important to me. I just want to be clear about that video. I knew Virgil van Dijk from the Dutch national team always touches it. I touched it earlier to tease Van Dyke.”
Despite the explanation, perhaps because he started with a sense of burden, Verhost’s ability to score goals, which was pointed out after entering Manchester United, seemed to be more shaken. Verhost had decisive scoring opportunities in the 8th and 17th minutes of the first half, but all showed disappointing shooting impact. Still, Verhost showed a passionate movement. 위너 토토
The goal, which had not been hit continuously, opened in the 37th minute of the second half. Facundo Felistri boldly broke through and handed the ball over. Scott McTominay’s shot was blocked, but Verhorst pushed it back. It was the moment when Verhost’s first goal at Old Trafford was scored.
Verhost’s emotions exploded, and he couldn’t control his emotions. Verhost, who suffered from not scoring and suffered from the Anfield controversy, even showed a tearful expression. All the Manchester United players came and congratulated Verhost.
