“Unhappy and moody” – Alan Shearer suggests Man United underperformer feels ‘let down’ by hierarchy



| Last Updated:


Alan Shearer has suggested that the recruitment from the summer could have impacted one Manchester United player under Erik ten Hag.

United signed Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund in the summer and also got Sergio Reguilon and Sofyan Amrabat on loan deals.

They haven’t started the season well, however, and United’s attacking line has been poor. The frontline players have scored just once between them in the Premier League this season.

Marcus Rashford scored 30 goals for the club last term and won the Player of the Year award at Old Trafford. This term, he’s only scored once so far.

Alan Shearer, who won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers, believes that the forward does not look happy playing his football at the moment.

When asked why Rashford is currently out of form for United, Shearer told Premier League productions: “I think the simple answer is we don’t know because we’re not within the football club. But what we’re looking at is someone who clearly looks very unhappy.

“He looks moody, and when that’s the case you’re never going to perform at your best.

“Whether he feels he’s better than what’s at Old Trafford at this moment in time, I don’t know. Whether he feels let down by recruitment because he went to another levels in terms of his goals last year. The club haven’t gone to it this season which maybe he wanted or expected to.”

Erik ten Hag knows that the forward is not in form at the moment but suggests that it is a matter of time before he starts putting the ball in the back of the net.\

“He is not happy. We are not happy,” Ten Hag explained. “He has high expectations from himself, at the moment he is not in his best form but I know he will be back.

“He’s totally in the team and aware of everything. he will be back on track and it can happen very quickly. Sometimes you only need one game and I’m sure he will get there.”
