United Fan Asked To Name The Player And Doesn't Recognise It's Best
Manchester United fans might be licking their wounds after their derby day defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday night, but there’s no doubt that this Red Devils supporter will rub salt into the wounds.
Sky Sports’ Soccer AM decided to speak with fans ahead of the derby, pulling up one United fan for a question about the club.
The fan was asked to name the ex-United player, which came after he said that he was “very confident” to take part in the segment as he has been a supporter for 30 years.
Laura Woods showed him a picture of United legend George Best and, well, that’s where it all went wrong for this fan.
The supporter was startled at the picture and the Sky Sports presenter even tried to help out by giving him the former United star’s initials.
Check it out below.
United suffered a 2-0 defeat to their city rivals at Old Trafford, with Bernardo Silva scoring the opener in the second half and Leroy Sané doubling their lead to seal all three points for Pep Guardiola’s men.
Fans heavily criticised United’s formation in the match at one point, while Alexis Sánchez also had a night to forget after he came off the bench and made only one touch in 12 minutes.
The reigning Premier League champions are at the top of the table with 89 points, with title-challenging rivals Liverpool one point behind them in second place.
United, on the other hand, are in sixth place and are three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Despite their defeat to City, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær was happy with how his side responded from their 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Everton on Sunday.
“We got a great reaction from the players and the supporters,” he told BBC Sport.
“You could see from the first minute that they wanted to show the crowd, who were incredible again.
“The first half was decent. We held our own and created chances with some efforts. Going into half-time, we know there was a lot of work to be done, but they won deservedly because they had too much for us.
“They are the best team in the country. They have set the standard in the last two seasons and I don’t know how many points they’ve taken.
“What Pep Guardiola has done with his players is remarkable and we are so close to it — in the vicinity — so we feel it every day.
“We are disappointed, but you can look at yourself and say we gave everything.
“We need to do that tomorrow and the next day. It’s about doing everything you can to close it [the gap].”
Will United finish in the top four this season?
