‘It Was Like Being Back In the Conference,’ Fulham Defender Says About Man United: Daily Soccer Report

After this past weekend’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United, Fulham defender Dan Burn compared defending United’s crosses to playing in the non-league conference:

“I’ve never headed that many balls since the Conference. We knew that was going to happen and I was happy for them to play like that.

“I’m six foot seven. It helps when dealing with those sort of balls.

“When we started dropping further back we wanted to get more compact and make them play around us because we had the strength in numbers.

“Manchester United still have amazing players – on another day they could have scored more often but we defended really well.”

Meanwhile, to make matters worse for David Moyes, Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen says that Manchester United’s gameplan was easy to combat and very straightforward. Ouch.
