It’s fair to say that veteran RTE pundit Eamon Dunphy isn’t all that convinced by Man Utd this season based on his latest rant on the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho would have been a happy man at the weekend, as not only did his side come from behind to secure a 4-1 win over Newcastle United, but he welcomed back Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo from injury.
In turn, things look to be heading in the right direction again as they look to wipe out an eight-point gap between themselves and rivals Man City as they have a near full-strength squad and the confidence looks to be coming back given the personalities and influence on the team that the returning trio have.
However, Dunphy isn’t having any of it as he has raised serious question marks over United and picked out Pogba in particular as he believes that the Frenchman is overhyped.
Some may not care too much for his opinion, but ultimately he’s got a lot of people talking with his no-nonsense assessment of Mourinho’s side as he predicts that they’ve got a heavy loss coming their way next month when they face City.
“They will always beat the Newcastles and the less important teams, but will they beat any of the big teams? We will soon know when they play Manchester City. Not really impressed by them. Pogba did okay for the first goal. But it’s saying something that he manages to beat one man, get a decent cross over and the hype starts again,” he is quoted as saying by Balls.ie.
“I don’t think Man United are contenders. What they (City) did to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was very impressive. I can see them ripping Man United to shreds.”
It remains to be seen if his prediction comes true, and there will be many who actually agree with him. However, it’s fair to suggest that he’s perhaps been a little harsh with his assessment, although whether Mourinho or Pogba care too much about it is another debate entirely.
