United trail the Danish champions 2-1 from the first leg of their last-32 tie and when he set out what he expected from his team in Thursday's game at Old Trafford, the Dutchman provided a bizarre response.

"Desire and hunger. A lot of times I use the word horny to my players," said 64-year-old Van Gaal.
