Jamie Redknapp discusses concluded Manchester United versus Brentford

Former Liverpool player Jamie Redknapp shared his opinion of Manchester United after watching their match against Brentford.


Redknapp was speaking to Sky Sports when he said it was like United had played with only 9 men.

‘They gave up so much possession. There was a lack of energy with the ball, without the ball,’ he said. ‘They just made Brentford look like Real Madrid.

‘That’s what I felt like I was watching. That shouldn’t have been the case. The way that Manchester United were was just so off it.

‘The lack of desire to go win individual battles. It was too easy for them. It was almost as if Man United had nine men.’

According to Redknapp, United’s way of playing under their incumbent coach was still unknown to him.

‘I’ve watched Manchester United under Erik ten Hag. I don’t know what their way of playing is.

‘I don’t know whether they play out from the back. They tried to do at times and they pass the ball to the keeper and he lumps it up the pitch. Do they do that for effect?

‘I know they haven’t necessarily had all the back four that they would like and if you’ve got [Lisandro] Martinez and [Raphael] Varane, it helps you build.

‘But I don’t know what the Man United way of playing is. They had so many opportunities today, Brentford, they were just better in every single department.

‘And there’s lots of talk about the manager. Will he still be here next year?

‘I think the way that the players are playing right now and that kind of performance, they’re going to decide because they’re the sort of performances that get the manager the sack, because there was a lack of effort.

‘And if they really liked this manager, if they want to play for him, they will do that.

‘I saw so many players just walking around, strolling around and not looking like they care. And they play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

‘And that for me, it shouldn’t really ever happen. There’s too many of them.’

It seems Ten Hag is nearing the end of the road too, with new co-boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe already looking for a new coach.
