Manchester United fans have advised manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sell defender Ashley Young, for his lacklustre display during the Red Devils’ 1-0 defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final first leg encounter at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
A first-half own goal by Luke Shaw gave the La Liga champions a slender lead to take back to Camp Nou for next week’s second leg fixture.
Man United fans have now reacted seriously to Young’s performance against Barcelona, with some calling for the former Aston Villa star to be sold in the summer transfer window.
Below are some reactions gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:
@SSHalliwell, “Also good to see Romero and Rojo having a good laugh in the final minute. Put them top of the list.
@rishabhkhanna23, “Can we please sell Ashley young midway through the match @ManUtd?
@RizwanFarooq10, “Ashley Young is stealing a living at United. He seriously can’t cross the ball. We haven’t, until this point, made our momentum in the game count. #MUFC.”
@TundayB, “I would struggle to convince a Sunday league manager to sign up Ashley Young. I mean it. UNLESS he wanted to sell tickets for home games.”
@TheToluAdeyi, “We need to sell Ashley Young at the end of the season. He is finished.”
@Osborn_Creation, “United needs to make plans for Ashley Young’s replacement in the summer. Fred has a lot to do to get back in shape judging from tonight’s performance. #MUFCBarça
@iamcburrows, “Ashley Young is sh*t. Why aren’t we binning him off this summer? #MUFCBarca
@kyraaah, “We’ve not been THAT bad but Ashley Young is diabolical. Absolute shit. Lord have mercy we need a new RB this summer. And a new CB, and CDM, and RW, and… well.. a whole new squad would be nice tbh. Keep 4 or 5 players, bin the rest of them.
@Bolapapaz, “High time Ashley young is sold from this club..I just cant handle it anymore. I am diving into a lagoon @ManUtd.”
@2nde, “Ashley young should be sold in the morning abeg! What’s this ffs??
@JackBayley1, “Some decent performances out there tonight impressed by a few! One thing is for sure, replace Ashley young in the summer.”
@GeorgeKachaje, “@ManUtd has Ashley Young made a successful cross from the right since we signed him?
@santry_dave, “Not watching united anymore until Ashley young is sold or sacked disgraceful performance #MUNFCB.”
