After being eliminated from the Champions League and with a few days off, Manchester United players, but also the manager and one of the club’s owners, have been seen at sporting events and concerts.
Former Manchester United footballer Gary Neville was annoyed by some of the players, technical staff and officials who were seen at events following Manchester United’s Champions League elimination.
After the defeat against the colchoneros on Tuesday, the red devils had a few days off since they did not play in the FA Cup or the championship this weekend. And now comes the end of selections. As well as the players, coach Ralf Rangnick went to see a cricket match in England and one of the club’s owners, Avram Glazer, was in Bahrain to watch the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
“I remember a time when Manchester United players, coaches and officials were not seen in a restaurant after a home draw, let alone after being knocked out of European competition. This week, we attended a Formula 1 world tour, concerts, cricket and the UFC events,” he wrote on Twitter.
“They can go on holiday, relax. They could be a bit more low-key, considering they’ve been knocked out of the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup [inglesa], and who in the Premier League always stumble. They have to adapt to the circumstances,” he added in response to another tweet.
