Manchester United endured a terrible night at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield yesterday.
The Red Devils are on the brink of missing out on Champions League football next season after a heavy defeat to Liverpool.
Former Manchester United Legends has slammed their team’s performance and criticized the player’s abysmal performance on the pitch.
The latest way in is the former Manchester United left-back, Mikael Silvestre who has claimed that only five of the current Manchester United squad deserve to wear the United jersey.
Erik Tag Hag has been tipped to be the next boss at old Trafford. The former French international believes that should the Dutchman take the helm of affairs at Manchester United only five players deserve to be at Manchester next season.
What was said?
He told Sky Sports: ‘Well first of all in one window you can’t sign 10 players, it doesn’t make sense. So it’s going to take two or three windows, and I’m talking summer windows, to adjust the squad to reflect what the new manager wants.
‘And for the ones that need to stay for sure, I would say the backbone of the team. Bruno Fernandes signed a new contract, so he needs to stay.
David de Gea, Raphael Varane who we haven’t seen much of this season, Harry Maguire need to improve. I think he’s a good leader, he’s having a difficult time at the moment, but he needs to stick to United and work hard to go back to his best.
‘And I would say Marcus Rashford would need to stay as well. Those guys I think have got United in their hearts but for the rest, I think there are question marks for all of them.’
Manchester United has the most expensive squad in the Premier League yet they are one of the poor-performing teams among the top six.
Their defense is worth more than €450 million but they concede in every game.
Gary Neville has also slammed his former side’s recruitment policy after Liverpool’s defeat and edged Manchester United to copy Manchester City and Liverpool in how they do their business in the transfer market.
The former United captain said:‘Coming to the recruitment side, what United has done is bring players in with piano introductions like (Alexis) Sanchez or (Paul) Pogba. They’ve elevated the player above the manager at the football club.
‘You go to Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City, and the manager is the primary figure at the football club.
