Fanstribe interviews staunch Man United fan Fanstribe interviews staunch Man United fan

Manchester United fans have found their voices again following their 4-1 victory over La Liga side Real Betis in the round of 16 Europa League first leg.

Goals from Marcus Rashford, Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst ensured that Ayoze Perez's 32-minute strike only counted for a consolation.

The victory comes against the backdrop of the Red Devil's 7-0 thrashing at the hands of bitterest rival Liverpool in the Premier League last Sunday.

In post-match reactions as gathered by Fanstribe via its Instagram handle, some excited United fans concluded that Betis were not competitive enough and the scoreline was not a true reflection of the game.

One fan who was interviewed by the sports network called for a more competitive team at the next stage of the competition.

Check out the reactions and the video below:
