United played for "shameful" performances
Emmanuel Petit on the French TV explained the results of the first part of United. Speaking at RMC Sport, he said:
We talked about it in the last few weeks, do the players release Mourinho down?
I do not know, but I know that Mourinho is trying. That's not right, but I think a lot of players in his team should really look in the mirror.
Matic, first, did his brother sign for United from Chelsea? Except for the last season in which he worked, he is bright years from what he is capable of.
He is not the only one, there is Ashley Young, and that does not even speak of a central defense. What are they doing in Manchester United?
I'm tired of Smalling. You know me, I'm not someone who poke players so easily. But I've been looking for him for years.
These players are not good enough to play in a big club like Manchester United and that has been going on for years.
Playing against Bournemouth after 30 minutes, I was ashamed of United's players. I was ashamed of this mythical club, I was shy about my history, I was ashamed of Mourinho, I was ashamed of my staff, I thought to myself, but what a team for the benefit.
Guys who do not give their all to watch each other, play. No inspiration. Frankly, it was embarrassing to imagine such a club. It was embarrassing. I've never seen United so bad thirty minutes, under Mourinho's command.
