After taking the lead through Memphis Depay, Louis van Gaal's side crumbled against their Danish opponents. Sisto equalised for the home side just before half-time before Paul Onuachu struck the winner.

It was arguably the lowest point of Van Gaal's reign at Old Trafford and a result that left the travelling fans furious.

Video footage has emerged which shows supporters repeatedly chanting "We're f****** s***" at the Manchester United players after the full-time whistle. The chants continued despite some of the players moving towards the away section and clapping in a show of appreciation for those who had made the trip.

Another video filmed at the MCH Arena shows away support being less than enthusiastic about their own side. Fans can be heard singing: "Oh what a night, freezing cold on a Thursday night and we're playing f****** s****".

Some of the Manchester United fans who made the trip to Denmark were already angry due to the ticket prices imposed by Midtjylland. Despite charging supporters £22 when they played Southampton earlier in the season, United fans had to fork out £71 to watch their team.

The second leg at Old Trafford will be played next Thursday.
