Manchester United players ‘not good enough or don’t care’ says Schmeichel

“Too many players are not good enough or don’t care enough.” says Peter Schmeichel

Peter Schmeichel was just one of many Manchester United legends who were horrified by a 4-1 derby loss to Manchester City.

Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez each scored two goals in City’s master class, while Jadon Sancho equalized Ralf Rangnick’s United 1-1.

United lost completely, forcing Ederson to make only one save and could have lost more – Phil Foden hit the post using one of his many chances.

Former United goalkeeper Schmeichel, who also played for City, watched the game on BBC Radio 5 Live and said: “I thought Rangnick should have turned things around at half-time. He may have had words, but the second half was worse. United had no points in the game other than the score.

“Far too many players are either not good enough, or don’t care enough. Having an interim manager means he can’t do much. He knows he’s not going to be there, so what can he change?

“Manchester City were majestic, but they haven’t had to work that hard for it and I think that will hurt United most.”
