Man Utd fans are regretting letting Anthony Elanga go after outrageous training video emerges

Manchester United fans think the club made a massive mistake selling Anthony Elanga this summer after seeing him training in the gym.

The Sweden international moved to Nottingham Forest for £15 million in July, bringing a nine-year relationship with the Red Devils to an end.

Elanga made his debut under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in May 2021 and became a regular under interim manager Ralf Rangnick later that term.

His game time decreased drastically following the appointment of Erik ten Hag, making just seven starts in all competitions.

The arrival of Antony and the emergence of Alejandro Garnacho meant the writing was on the wall for Elanga, who decided to move to the City Ground in search of consistent first-team football.

Elanga's already become a key player at Forest, scoring two goals and registering three assists in 12 appearances. Interestingly, he's scored more goals than every United attacker in the league this term.

Antony, Garnacho, Facundo Pellistri, Anthony Martial, and Rasmus Hojlund are yet to score and Marcus Rashford's sole strike came in September's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Ahead of Forest's game with Brighton on Saturday afternoon, Elanga posted a video of himself in the gym ahead of a return to action following a knee injury.

Included in the video is the 21-year-old going through several exercises before showing his highlights this term.

United supporters have seen Elanga going hard in the gym and are starting to think Ten Hag letting him go was way too soon.

One person said: "Looks like you’re the only one who took any knowledge from Cristiano Ronaldo while at United. Love this Anthony."

A second commented: "Why were we so quick to kick him out?"

Someone tweeted: "Ten Hag will regret this."

While a fourth put: "I'd be playing him over Garnacho and Antony this season."

United are currently sixth in the Premier League and despite winning four of their last five games, it's been a tricky period for Ten Hag.

They return to action against Everton on Sunday afternoon and then travel to Turkey for a huge game in the Champions League against Galatasaray on Wednesday.

If United lose, they will be eliminated from the competition.
