Manchester United suffered their sixth loss in eight matches in all competitions on Sunday afternoon. The Red Devils weren’t just beaten, but they were humiliated by Everton, 4-0. It was another Manchester United mistake in the race for the Champions League qualification.
Manchester United mistake: Everton thrash Red Devils
Everton thrashed Manchester United with goals from Richarlison, two from Gylfi Sigurdsson, and another from Theo Walcott.
The Red Devils have now gone two matches in all competitions without scoring a goal and conceding a combined seven scores.
In the wake of the loss, former Manchester United full-back Gary Neville criticised the squad’s poor play under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The humiliating loss also saw Solskjaer apologise to Manchester United’s supporters following the embarrassing loss.
Sunday’s 4-0 defeat was Manchester United’s biggest loss of the season.
Manchester United mistake: Alexis Sanchez transfer admission
Prior to Manchester United’s sixth defeat in eight games on Sunday, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward publicly stated Alexis Sanchez’s transfer was a mistake.
According to the Metro, the midfielder currently earns a basic wage of close to £400,000 a week. In addition, his salary is topped up by lucrative bonuses that include a £75,000 appearance fee every time he features for the club.
Manchester United are interested in ridding themselves of Sanchez in the summer and could take a reduced transfer fee to make the move happen.
Sanchez may not be the only member of Manchester United moving in the summer. Coach Mike Phelan could be let go as well. Phelan was brought back to be Solskjaer’s assistant but could leave.
The Mirror states Manchester United are searching for a director of football. Woodward wants to add an educated footballing mind that can link the boardroom with the Manchester United dressing room.
