David May issues rallying cry after Man United’s 2-1 loss to Midtjylland

David May isn't about to give up on his beloved Manchester United

David May is refusing to be downbeat about Manchester United despite their latest setback on Thursday night.

The Red Devils suffered a humiliating 2-1 loss to Danish champions Midtjylland in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie at Arena Herning.

Memphis Depay’s 37th minute opener was cancelled out by Pione Sisto before Paul Onuachu secured a famous win for the home side in freezing conditions.

Louis van Gaal’s side can return to winning ways against League One side Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday night.

Former United defender May, who was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s Champions League-winning squad in 1999, issued a rallying cry to his fellow supporters on Twitter after the 2-1 defeat.

United are in fifth place and six points behind derby rivals Manchester City, who occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot.
