BBC Sports pundit Garth Crooks has claimed that the Glazers are not to be blamed for Manchester United’s poor start to the season.
So far, United have lost three of their opening five fixtures this season, accruing just 6 points from a possible 15.
Crooks insists Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag and his players should take the blame for failing to meet expectations.
Speaking to the BBC, Garth Crooks said: “Any attempt to try to attach blame for Manchester United’s poor recent performances on the Glazers’ lack of ability to sell the club is utter nonsense.
“Whatever boardroom activities are taking place has nothing to do with a professional footballer once they cross the white line. I don’t think I’ve seen defending by a Man United side like that for years.
“Victor Lindelof looked unrecognisable from the player I saw in last season’s FA Cup semi-final and don’t even get me started on Lisandro Martinez. However, this was an impressive victory at Old Trafford by Brighton.
“They ran all over United in a similar way to how Wolves did earlier in the season — except they didn’t get the result. Pascal Gross was the standout player and seems to have filled the gaps left by Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo.”
