Manchester United are set to tell Erik ten Hag to ‘pack his bags’ after a ‘messy’ performance saw Brentford score four goals in 35 minutes in a 4-0 win.
That’s according to talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor, who didn’t hold back as he tore into the Red Devils’ ‘amateur’ players.
Goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo shocked the Red Devils shell at the Community Stadium.
Things looked like they couldn’t get any worse after a 2-1 home loss to Brighton, but they certainly did, with Thomas Frank’s Bees making it easy.
United had their worst Premier League season last time out under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangick, and there was hope Ten Hag could turn things around.
However, after just two games, former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor has seen enough.
“It’s not Manchester United,” he said on Gameday Phone-In.
“If I was in their shoes now after this game I’d be thinking, ‘You know what, Ten Hag, pack your bags’. He had pre-season and they started the season in shambles, they’re like strangers in the field.
