Raphael Varane spotted shouting at Man United players to go over to fans after shambolic 7-0 hammering against Liverpool
| Last updated
Raphael Varane was spotted shouting at Manchester United players and demanding they go over to the away fans after the 7-0 annihilation at the hands of Liverpool.
United suffered their heaviest defeat since Boxing Day 1931, conceding SIX second half goals in a complete and utter capitulation at Anfield.
Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah all hit doubles for the Reds, while Roberto Firmino came off the bench to complete the rout days after it was announced he would be leaving the club.
It will go down as one of the darkest days in the history of United, who showed that they are still a long way off being in contention for the Premier League title despite ending their six-year trophy drought a week ago.
The behaviour of some of their players was nothing short of shambolic but Varane received a bit of props post-match.
A number of his teammates were walking straight down the tunnel but the Frenchman demanded that they applaud the fans who had paid their hard-earned money and stayed for the whole duration of the humiliation.
Around 58 seconds into a clip posted by Sky Sports, an angry and animated Varane could be seen in the background, gesturing to his colleagues.

Not one player came out with any credit after a truly abject display but Varane did at least get some respect for what he did after the game.
One fan wrote: "Respect for his professionalism."
A second weighed in: "This boils my blood. I rate this so high from Varane. Of course they are going to get a horrid reaction from the away fans and they shouldn’t hide from it. Fans spend unreal amounts of money and you can’t even say thank you to the ones have stayed."
Another added: "One of the only leaders in this team. Disgrace of a performance today, the least you can do is go and say sorry to the fans."
A fourth tweeted: "You absolutely stunk today but this is beautiful."
A fifth said: "He should be captain over Bruno, especially after today."
Meanwhile Bruno Fernandes was branded "embarrassing" by former United captain Neville. The Portugal international was constantly flailing his arms around while wearing the armband, with his body language not what you expect from a leader.
