Biggest bunch of overpaid, under-performing wastrels in history, Man Utd will have a terrible season, slams Piers Morgan | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED will have a terrible season thanks to their overpaid, under-performing wastrels, according to Piers Morgan.

The Red Devils had a season to forget under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick last time out.


United finished sixth in the Premier League, limping home closer to the relegation zone than champions and rivals Manchester City in terms of points.

But Piers doesn't think the grass will be any greener at Old Trafford in 2022-23 under new boss Erik ten Hag – despite a bright start to pre-season.

When asked who he was tipping to be the biggest disappointment of 2022-23, Piers told SunSport: "Manchester United.

"The biggest bunch of overpaid, under-performing wastrels in Premier League history will have another terrible season.

"So much expensive talent but so little dedication, commitment or pride in wearing those world-famous shirts."

Turning to the boss, Piers continued: "New manager Erik ten Hag talks a good game.

"But his transfer business so far has been seriously underwhelming.

"He will quickly discover his showboating Twitter-obsessed prima donnas just don’t have the right mentality to compete."

Piers concluded: "I doubt they will even make the top six."

Last term, United finished 13 points adrift of Tottenham in fourth – and 11 behind fifth-placed Arsenal.

As well as bringing in Ten Hag, the Red Devils have signed Tyrrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen.

But their pre-season plans have been hampered by Cristiano Ronaldo's determined fight to quit the club.

And Piers reckons the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is RIGHT to be so aggressive in his pursuit of a new team.

He continued: "Ronaldo will extricate himself from his living nightmare at a rotting excuse for a giant global club that now bears no resemblance to the iconic place where he first cut his GOAT teeth.

"He may be 37 but he’s still fitter than most players and scored 18 Premier League goals last season, second behind joint Golden Boot winners Mo Salah and Son Heung-min.

"Yet pathetic media snipers have blamed HIM for United’s woes which is utter nonsense. Without him, they’d have been fighting relegation.

"Ronaldo’s looked at the dreadfully unambitious way United’s run these days — and the woefully entitled attitude of many of the younger players — and wants to run away from this trainwreck faster than United’s fastest fan, Usain Bolt.

"I don’t blame him."
