‘Worst Man United squad I’ve ever seen’ – Red Devils slated after derby defeat
That’s just a few of the adjectives used by talkSPORT’s Alex Crook to characterize Manchester United following their humbling 4-1 loss to local rivals Manchester City on Sunday.
Crook, a Manchester United supporter, believes the club’s owners ‘deserve’ to see how poorly it is performing after failing to operate it effectively since Sir Alex Ferguson departed in 2013.
And he claims that this is the worst team he’s ever seen, citing Harry Maguire as someone who should be nowhere near the starting XI.
“I think it’s depressing, but it’s what the owners deserve,” Crook said on talkSPORT.
“It’s what the Glazer family deserves since the football club’s management since Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill left has been nothing short of awful.”
“You can’t keep assuming that because you were once a major club, you have a divine right to play regular Champions League games and compete for trophies — it doesn’t work like that.”
“You have to spend in infrastructure, you have to invest in a professional football director — someone who knows how to function in the transfer market – don’t keep throwing good money after bad.”
“This Manchester United team is the worst set of Manchester United players I’ve ever seen in my life.”
“They have no character, no passion, no dedication, and no tactical knowledge.” It just gets worse from here.
“Manchester City and Liverpool are lightyears ahead of us.” Chelsea, who isn’t removing many trees this season, is lightyears ahead of us.
“Arsenal is in danger of surpassing United because they have the right recruiting, the right people making the right decisions, and they have good characters in the dressing room.”
“Everything Manchester United lacks.”
“I don’t like to pick out people because they’re all equally responsible, but Harry Maguire, England’s Harry Maguire, has been dreadful for two, maybe three years now.”
“He should not be in the England squad.” He has no place in this Manchester United team.
“But look at the body language – they’re walking off the field, there’s an acceptance, a grimace from Ralph Rangnick, their heads are lowered, they’re a shame.”
