Watch: Former Liverpool hero slams Manchester United performance
United were happy to come away from Seville with a goalless draw and will fancy their chances in the return leg at Old Trafford, but they had David de Gea to thank for a number of excellent saves.

United did little to impress Hamann, who won the competition with Liverpool in 2005.
The German told RTE Soccer: “It was dreadful, it was anti-football in a way and I think for a club the size of United, for the money they’ve spent in recent years, I think it was an embarrassing performance.”
