Manchester United fans have started to call for Sir Alex Ferguson's return after their worst start to a season since he was appointed.
The Red Devils were beat 4-3 by Bayern Munich in their opening Champions League group stage match last night (September 20) – a fourth defeat in the first six games of the season. Erik ten Hag's side only have wins over Wolves and Nottingham Forest at Old Trafford.

Fergie was mentioned in the pre-match build-up in Germany by Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel, who said he feels the legendary manager's 26-plus year reign still hangs over the club.
“At United, it’s common for small things to become more important than at other clubs," he told reporters. “I feel like at United there's always a lot of noise, a lot of consultants in the UK are ex-players. The legacy of Sir Alex creates a lot of pressure and of expectations”.
