Diogo Dalot accused of ‘total lack of respect’ for Man Utd teammate as damning moment spotted in Bournemouth defeat

Diogo Dalot has been accused of 'disrespecting' his Manchester United teammate in their crushing defeat to Bournemouth.

Man United suffered a humiliating defeat to Andoni Iraola's side on Saturday as the Cherries ran out 3-0 winners at Old Trafford.

Dominic Solanke opened the scoring in the fifth minute, with Philip Billing and Marcos Senesi adding a second and third in the second-half to secure a famous victory.

Erik ten Hag's reaction following the final whistle was a telling moment while Mark Goldbridge's assessment to Man United's latest defeat sums up their slump.

Speaking on Match of the Day, Gary Lineker and Ian Wright slammed Dalot as they highlighted a moment involving Rasmus Hojlund.

In the 67th minute with Man United trailing 1-0, the Portuguese was through on goal with the young Dane in the box.

However, instead of squaring the ball to Hojlund, Dalot opted to take a shot, hitting the side of the net.

His decision to take on the shot and not pick out Hojlund angered Wright, who claimed he lacked respect in that moment.

Lineker said: "There was a moment in the game that kind of summed up why things have gone awry at Manchester United."

Wright chipped in: "For me, it was when I saw... It was [Diogo] Dalot, and at 1-0 and we are talking about Hojlund’s come on now and he wants his chance.

"This is good play from them. He gets in, he’s got to square this, he’s got to square it to him. I think there’s a total lack of respect for him, he doesn’t even acknowledge [him]... look at him he’s had a shot from the most ridiculous angle, he’s upset with himself.

"But he doesn’t even look for Hojlund, has a ridiculous shot and then Bournemouth scored a minute later, Hojlund has got to be pulling him up in the dressing room about that, he’s got to say 'come on'."

Hojlund, who entered the fray as a second-half substitute, has yet to open his Premier League goal account.

But he has scored five goals in the Champions League this season.
