Piers Morgan referenced his infamous interivew with Cristiano Ronaldo as he gave his assessment of Jadon Sancho’s comments about Erik ten Hag.
The Red Devils were beaten 3-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they capitulated in injury time.
Marcus Rashford gave United the lead on 27 minutes before Martin Odegaard equalised a minute later.
Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus then secured the win for the Gunners in injury time, as Mikel Arteta’s side claimed all three points.
Arsenal fan Morgan did not hold back, lambasting United’s performance.
And as a row erupts between Sancho and Ten Hag, he claims the Dutchman is to fully to blame for their current circumstance, referencing Ronaldo’s explosive talkTV interview – which ultimately spelled the end for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner at Old Trafford.
“I think they [Manchester United], are crap” he told talkSPORT.
“I am sorry to have to use that kind of word at this time of the morning for the more sensitive listeners.
“I honestly think it is one of the poorest Man United teams that has come to Arsenal.
“I think back to the glory years of Sir Alex Ferguson, none of this lot would get into Ferguson’s teams.
“It got to the stage when Harry Maguire came on, Arsenal fans cheered!
“There is something inherently wrong with United, and if you look back to my interview with Cristiano Ronaldo, pretty much everything he said about Manchester United, the club, structure, Ten Hag, all of those chickens have come home to roost.
“Everything he said was right, and I think if you look at the issue with Jadon Sancho, then this is Ronaldo all over again.
“Him [Ten Hag] going public and criticising players. Players deeming he is being misleading about them, and then having to go public themselves.
“It comes a point when Ten Hag needs to look at himself.”
Sancho failed to make the bench as his team-mates slumped to a 3-1 loss in north London.
“Jadon, on his performances in training we did not select him,” Ten Hag clarified following the match.
“You have to reach a level every day at Manchester United and we can make choices in the front line. So for this game he was not selected.”
It prompted the England international to respond on social media as he issued a statement, revealing there were extra motives behind his absence.
Morgan has offered Sancho the chance to appear on his talkTV show, just like Ronaldo, posting: “Hi Jadon, come on Piers Uncensored and I’ll get you out of this Ten Hag nightmare.”
And he continued his criticism of the United boss insisting he’s ‘out of his depth’.
“Somebody tweeted a stat that under Ten Hag, United have not beaten a single top-half team away from home since Ten Hag took over as Manchester United manager.
“I think they guy, if he played the game with the team he talks, he would be the best manager in the world.
“I just think he is completely out of his depth, I think it is a poor United side, I think they competed for bits of the game yesterday, but in the end Arsenal were a comfortably better team.
“More importantly, I think the way Arsenal is now run, is a template for where United fans would want their team to be.”
