Heavyweight boxing Champion, Tyson Fury has slammed Manchester United players following our dreadful derby defeat to Manchester City.

The boxing icon who is a Manchester United fan was at Old Trafford on Saturday and watched live as Manchester United was battered by Pep Guardiola’s side.

He was left worried with the performance of the team and also claimed the United players are not doing well enough under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“After today’s defeat to City, it’s fair to say United are taking a worse beating than Deontay Wilder took in all his fights against me,” Fury said in an Instagram video.

“We are absolutely getting smashed out there. I think partly it is because the players – with no disrespect to any of you – it doesn’t seem like you are digging deep to try and win these games.

“It just seems like you’re happy to get through them and whatever happens, happens.

“You know, when I fought Wilder and I was on the floor, and any man I’ve ever fought, I never believed I was going to lose the fight.

“I always believed I would come back and win, and that is called a winner’s mentality, something that you guys in the last two games have just not had.

“I think me and Patrice Evra will come down to training and give you some of that [fist] and give you the hard words that you need.”
