    Frank expecting 'difficult' match

    Brentford manager Thomas Frank thinks Wednesday's clash against Man United will be the hardest of the season.

    He said: “We are potentially going into the most difficult game of the season, with everything taken into consideration.

    “Erik ten Hag and his staff have done a very good job. They’ve just won their first trophy and they’re fighting for a Champions League spot.

    “They lost (on Sunday) so they will want to bounce back. Plus, we beat them last time, so they’ll doubly want to bounce back. And they’re a very good team with top players.”

    When asked if Weghorst was potentially part of his long-term plans, the Red Devils boss said: "Of course.

    Former Man United defender Paul Parker believes the club should make a move to sign Napoli star Kim Min-jae.

    Parker told Kelbet: "Kim Min-jae has done excellent for Napoli this season and I would love to see him at Man United.

    "Raphael Varane can be a bit fragile sometimes so it would be good with a new player who can compete with him.

    "And then Kim Min-jae has to earn his spot in the starting XI. If he is willing to come here and fight for a spot that is not guaranteed, that would be amazing."

    Weghorst not for Keys

    Former Sky Sports presenter Richards Keys has slammed Erik ten Hag's defence of misfiring striker Wout Weghorst.

    Keys wrote in his blog: "Ten Hag justified his plans to sign him permanently by telling us that last week – and went on to add that Workhorse 'creates space for players'. I'll tell you what – he'd create more space if he wasn't on the pitch.

    "The bottom line is that he's a bang ordinary centre-forward who doesn't score goals and isn't good enough to play for United. Ten Hag sounds like a desperate man trying to justify a mistake every time he talks about him.

    "And when is ten Hag going to accept that his team don’t lack 'passion, desire, hunger and attitude' every time they get beaten? Or that 'they didn't stick to the game plan'."

    Fergie time

    Sir Alex Ferguson will win ANOTHER medal to add to his giant collection – despite being retired for almost ten years.

    The 81-year-old Manchester United legend is the most decorated manager of all time, winning an incredible 49 trophies in his time in management.

    And now, FORTY YEARS on, he will secure a medal for a success not won with the Red Devils, but with Aberdeen.

    The Dons won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1983 with a stunning 2-1 win against Real Madrid in Gothenburg.

    But only the players who started that game and the five substitutes won medals for the triumph.

    However, thanks to a campaign led by Chris Gavin on behalf of the AFC Heritage Trust Fergie, his No2 Archie Knox and midfielder Dougie Bell, who missed the final because of injury, will also be rewarded.

    Eriksen recovering well

    Man Utd star Christian Eriksen's recovery is going well.

    Erik ten Hag said: "Eriksen is back on the pitch, not yet in the team training but I expect him in the coming week, [or] weeks, back in team training so will be available for games again.”

    There were concerns he was going to miss the rest of the season but it seems he will feature again at some point this term.

    Eriksen sustained an ankle injury in January's FA Cup win over Reading.

    Neville slams Ten Hag

    Man Utd legend Gary Neville has slammed Erik ten Hag's tactics during the Newcastle game that resulted in a shattering 2-0 defeat.

    But Neville has laid the blame squarely at the manager's door for Newcastle's killer second goal that killed the game.

    And the error? Taking off BOTH starting centre-halves at 1-0 down.

    That saw United go to a back three, with Lindelof partnered by regular full-back Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot.

    Neville explained: "Once those changes were made this was the most predictable outcome. Manchester United just had no height in there.

    "You are better off having two with them both being centre-backs rather than three with two full-backs, you end up being really exposed.

    "Since the two centre backs went off it has been a mess, I didn't like it.

    "I thought it might be like this. I never see one centre back working, it very rarely does.

    "Shaw is playing as a second centre-back anyway, you might as well have a proper one in there."

    Sancho future unclear

    Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag is growing increasingly impatient with Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

    Sancho, who has made just five appearances in the last five months, could be sold as part of Ten Hag's proposed clearout and rebuild.

    Man Utd are keen on the likes of Jude Bellingham, Declan Rice and Frenkie de Jong this summer, according to reports.

    Manager Erik ten Hag is keen to bolster his midfield options and is weighing up potential signings as well as exits.
