Many of the Manchester United fans were disgruntled after their club lost 3-2 at Wolfsburg, which knocked them out of the Champions League, and into the Europa League, where they have now been drawn against Danish club FC Midtjylland.
The little Danish club has an 11,000-capacity stadium, and is nothing near to the Manchester United, in terms of their financial structure.
However, The Red Devilsrecieved a lot of mocking on Twitter, as they were drawn against a club most of their fans did not even know existed.
Firstly though, there was some heavy-duty trolling because Manchester United were in the Europa League draw, instead of the Champions League, and the chief culprit was Paddy Power.

I think Man U should just sort of retire as a club. They won’t win the title for 100 years. Is that how they want to end up? Like Liverpool?

Next up, we take a taste of the gulf of difference between the two clubs.
Arsenal have the same amount of champions league trophies as Midtjylland

FC Midtjylland might be minnows, but they have shown that they can hurt the big teams, as these two fans remind up.
People saying they’ve never heard of FC Midtjylland ! I have, I watched them knock Southampton out of the qualifying rounds. #MUFC
