Man United star labelled the “most starved player of all time” under Erik ten Hag by former player

Manchester United fell to defeat against Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening, with the side crashing out of the Champions League.

Manchester United conceded their 15th Champions League goal of the season in a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening, breaking the record for the most goals conceded by an English club in the competition’s groups stage.

Despite Rasmus Højlund finishing as joint top-scorer of the competition by the end of matchday six with five goals to his name, Erik ten Hag‘s men finished bottom of Group A and fell out of all European competition due to their leaky defence.

One player in particular who suffered against Bayern was Højlund himself, with the player not getting any sniff at goal – and although some said that was because he was marked out of the game by Dayot Upamecano, former striker Chris Sutton believes it was because he had absolutely no service.

Sutton explained that he has a lot of sympathy for Højlund and thinks that he may be one of the most starved players in United history under Erik ten Hag.

“I’ve got massive sympathy for Rasmus Højlund,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 Live after the game. “I honestly don’t know whether he is any good or he isn’t because what sort of service does he get?

“He must be the most starved Manchester United centre-forward of all time, certainly in my living memory.

“You look at Harry Kane at the other end. What an accomplished striker he is, and there is that question: Why did Manchester United not make a bigger play for him? Maybe they did, but blimey, they could have done with him.”
