Alan Shearer calls out four Man Utd players with 'really bad attitudes' after Newcastle defeat

Alan Shearer calls out four Man Utd players with 'really bad attitudes' after Newcastle defeat

He called out four players.

Alan Shearer called out four Manchester United players for their bad attitudes after the club’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.

United slumped to defeat against Newcastle on Saturday, with the Magpies’ Anthony Gordon scoring the game’s only goal in the 55th minute.

It was a dismal display for United, who did manage to get the ball in the back of Newcastle's net late on after Antony’s shot deflected off Harry Maguire. However, the underserved equaliser was rightly ruled out for offside.

After watching the game, Newcastle legend Shearer slammed Erik ten Hag’s men and claimed around four United players were shown to have bad attitudes in the encounter.

Speaking on the Rest is Football podcast, Shearer said: “I thought they were a mess, I thought they were terrible. I thought their attitude was awful and it highlighted some of the really bad attitudes they clearly have.

“When it's tough and when it's hard, you see the players who want to play for you and you see the players who want to support you as a manager and as a fan.

“And I thought there were three or four players who were not prepared to roll their sleeves up and gave up far too easily and didn't want to fight.”

Shearer has previously questioned the attitudes of the United players as a pundit on Match of the Day.

He said: "For me, there are too many bad eggs in that Man United team. Too many bad attitudes. It's alright when things are going well for you, you can get your feet on the ball, play and pick your head up when things are nice and rosy.

"When it's not going for you when you're a bit tired and you've got to roll your sleeves up, there are not enough characters in that team."

United will be looking to respond to the poor display in midweek as they take on Chelsea at Old Trafford. Another defeat could see United drop to ninth in the Premier League table.
