West Ham player highlights Erik ten Hag’s £50m mistake at Man United



| Last Updated:


Manchester United lost 2-0 against West Ham on Saturday afternoon as former Ajax winger Mohammed Kudus scored a decisive goal for The Hammers.

The Reds were poor again as their attacking players were toothless in attacking situations, and the team didn’t create those opportunities nearly enough either.

Alejandro Garnacho missed a golden chance to open the scoring in the first half, but his weak shot was easily saved. Antony wasted countless chances on the right, meanwhile, and often ran into defenders.

Both wingers combined found striker Rasmus Hojlund with only one pass between them before the Dane was replaced by Marcus Rashford. Neither of them found the England international with a single pass.

Antony continues to show glimpses in games, whether it be a smart turn or pass, before crashing back down to earth with such minimal impact in the final third with poor crossing, shooting and passing.

The former Ajax player cost the Old Trafford club just over £85 million and looks nowhere near good enough to start for the club if they want to move in the right direction. He has yet to register a goal contribution in all competitions this term.

Meanwhile, David Moyes has another ex-Ajax wide player in his ranks. Mohammed Kudus moved to West Ham in the summer for just over £35 million after also being linked with a move to United in the prior year.

The 23-year-old has 10 goal contributions for The Hammers so far this season, including a well-taken finish against United, and is considered one of the signings of the season.

Erik ten Hag worked with both Kudus and Antony at Ajax but decided to bring the Brazilian to Old Trafford.

It is not entirely his fault that United paid over the odds after poor transfer planning, but the £50 million gap in price between the two players is very alarming and is indicative of United’s transfer market failings under Ten Hag.
