Manchester United Told To Sign '15 Players' In The Biggest Rebuild In Club's History

Manchester United need to go out and recruit 15 new players following their humiliating 4-0 defeat to Brighton, according to former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor.

It was an afternoon to forget at the Amex for Ralf Rangnick's men as goals from Moises Caicedo, Marc Cucurella, Pascal Grob and Leandro Trossard handed the Seagulls their fourth home win of the season.

United fans were heard chanting "you're not fit to wear the shirt" during the performance – a statement Bruno Fernandes agreed with. "What we did today, what I did today, was not enough to be in a Man Utd shirt,” the midfielder said.

Criticism of United's performances have been damning throughout the season and in a scathing assessment of their latest performance, Gabriel Agbonlahor says a huge overhaul needs to take place at Old Trafford in the coming months.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the 35-year-old said: "When you look at that performance today [against Brighton] they need 15 new players. Not one player in that team will Ten Hag look at from today’s performance and want to play next season.

"They were not bothered, had no passion to play for Manchester United. I know we don’t like using the term they’re on the beach but it looked like they were.

"Brighton are a good, good team but Manchester united should never be losing 4-0 to Brighton. They let the club down, the fans are singing you’re not fit to wear the shirt. All of them were poor."

Agbonlahor went on to criticise United centre-back Raphael Varane for his recent performances in a red shirt.

"It’s funny how you can’t blame Pogba for today, you can’t blame Harry Maguire," he added. "Maybe players like Varane need calling out because he’s been very poor this season."

Earlier this month, Agbonlahor said United captain Maguire will be looking forward to the end of this season, in the hopes of returning and impressing new manager Erik ten Hag.

"I do feel sorry for Harry Maguire," he told Football Insider. "I’ve been there as a player where you’re going through a rough spell and everyone’s on your back. You don’t know where to turn.

"For him, I bet he can’t wait for the season to finish. Get on a nice break with his family, forget about football.

"Come back in pre-season, put in the hard yards and start off a new season under a new manager. He’ll be looking forward to getting away in the summer, getting away from football.

"You can go through that. Everyone’s got mental health and you can’t look at footballers as robots."≠
