Manchester United should tell Erik ten Hag to ‘pack his bags’ after Brentford humiliation, says Gabby Agbonlahor after Red Devils ‘amateur’ squad’s ‘shattering’ performance


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.

“They just aren’t good enough, [David] De Gea must know that [Christian] Eriksen has a man behind him, use your brains and you don’t give it to him, Man City wouldn’t even give it to Rodri in that position.

“Manchester United fan.

“If I was Gary Neville now at halftime [commentating for Sky Sports] I threw in the white towel and said, ‘Okay, it’s 4-0, I can’t take it anymore.

“They are not united, they are divided, none of them work for each other. Look at them, they are like strangers on the pitch.

“[Lisandro] Martinez at centre-back, he’s supposed to be the centre-back to come and help them, he looks lost in the Premier League.

“It’s a shambles kit, a shambles club at the moment.

“I hammered United and people say I have a plan against Manchester United – no, I’m talking about facts that real Manchester United fans will agree with.

“You’re just not the same Manchester United you used to be.

“These results have arrived. Last week you lost and it wasn’t a shock, and it’s not a shock to me.

“I knew Brentford would win, it’s no shock to me.”
