Manchester United crashed out of the Champions League in dramatic fashion after losing 3-2 to Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena.

PSV Eindhoven’s 2-1 win against CSKA Moscow coupled with United’s defeat to Wolfsburg condemned Louis Van Gaal’s side to the Europa League.

Manchester United took the lead in Germany in the 10th minute after Frenchman Anthony Martial slotted home a perfectly weighted pass by Juan Mata. However, Dieter Hecking’s side equalized 3 mins later as Brazilian defender Naldo guided home a Ricardo Rodriguez free kick.

It was to get worse for Manchester United midway through the first half as Vieirinha gave Wolfsburg the lead after excellent work in buildup by Julian Draxler. Going into the second half, United needed a single goal to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition as PSV were still being held 0-0 by CSKA in Eindhoven.

15 minutes before the end, it seemed as if Manchester United had gotten a backdoor entry into the final 16 as CSKA Moscow took a shock lead in Eindhoven through the penalty spot. However, PSV equalized 2 mins later through Luuk De Jong. A Joshua Guilavogui goal six minutes later leveled the scores at 2-2 and gave United renewed hope of qualification.

Their joy was to be short lived, however, as Wolfsburg took the lead through the second time in the match through Naldo’s header six minutes before time. Seconds later, Davy Proepper scored a screamer for PSV to send Manchester United crashing out of the UEFA Champions League.

Football fans, pundits and players took to twitter to lambast Louis Van Gaal and his expensively assembled Manchester United squad for their meek exit from the Champions League. Here are some of the best tweets.
