Burnley record first win at Old Trafford since 1962
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United suffered a humiliating 2-0 defeat to Burnley at Old Trafford in the Premier League this morning.
Just 25 days after the Red Devils won 2-0 at Turf Moor, Burnley won by the same scoreline as Chris Wood and Jay Rodriguez secured a memorable win for the their side.
And following their dismal display, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand criticised the club’s lack of direction at board level.
“I’m sitting here embarrassed. It’s embarrassing to be here seeing this,’ said the former England international on BT Sport.
“You can’t defend this. Fans were walking out after 85 minutes. People at the top need to see this and make changes and put a plan in place. Young kids in schools around the country won’t be wearing Man United shirts, they won’t be wanting to come here and see this.
“Nothing there suggests this is laying the foundation of future. I don’t see a pathway. Where’s the target set on the wall, saying this is how we’re going to get there? Money has been spent willy-nilly in the past seven years, what’s to show?”
Burnley are now 13th in the Premier League while Manchester United remain in fifth, with only four points separating the two sides.
