Wayne Rooney says David Moyes’ Man United was “never ever” as bad as current Ten Hag team

Posted by

Man United host Arsenal on Sunday afternoon as they look to keep their European football hopes alive and ahead of the game at Old Trafford, club legend Wayne Rooney has said that David Moyes’ team from ten years ago was “never ever” as bad as the current group of players. 

The Scottish coach took charge of the Manchester club during the 2013/14 season following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. The current West Ham boss was sacked during the campaign as the Red Devils would go on to finish seventh with 64 points.

Rooney was part of that Man United team and ahead of the Arsenal clash the former England striker has stated that Moyes’ team was “never ever” as bad as Erik ten Hag’s current group of players.

“It’s very unpredictable, you come to Old Trafford today and you have no idea what performance you are going to get, what team you are going to see, potentially they can win the game but I’ve come and I don’t know what is going to happen here,” Rooney said on Sky Sports.

“I think that is the disappointing thing throughout the season, the goals they’ve conceded, the lack of desire at times.”

The pundit continued by saying: “We finished seventh under David Moyes when I was here, I know Moyes lost his job, but it never ever felt as bad as it is now.”

Are Erik ten Hag’s Man United team the worst ever at Old Trafford?

Man United’s new part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe is yet to make a decision on Ten Hag’s future and that will likely come at the end of the campaign.

It is very hard to see the Dutch coach keeping his job, even if they win the FA Cup, as the performances and results in recent weeks have been very worrying.

Man United were hammered 4-0 by Crystal Palace on Monday night and the Manchester club could not even lay a glove on the Eagles.

Ten Hag does have injury problems but he should be able to get a tune out of the players he has available to him.
