Richard Key Believes Man United Is Playing 10 Men as Weghorst Is Struggling in Front of Goal


Richard Keys takes another dig at Wout Weghorst and claims that Man United is efficacious playing with 10 men with the striker from the Netherlands in the team. Man United signed Weghorst on loan in January from Burnley after releasing Cristiano Ronaldo, the superstar during World Cup.

He fared better on loan at Besiktas before his move to Old Trafford, scoring 8 goals and offering 4 assists in 16 league games. In Manchester United, Weghorst has been a mainstay team since he arrived in England the previous month but has just scored 1 goal in 10 appearances for Manchester United.

However, Keys, the sports broadcaster hasn’t been impressed by the contributors of Weghorst say that Man United is playing with 10 men when the Dutchman is a part of the team.

Keys said about Weghorst that they are playing with 10 men most weeks if he is in. They also said that he does not do enough for justifying a starting place. The latest comment by Keys comes after he had mocked Manchester United giants of the Premier League for signing Weghorst during the transfer window of January.

The search of Weghorst for the first goal has not ended at Old Trafford after missing out on a good chance in Man United Premier League victory over Leicester City. The outcome takes Manchester United to within 3 points of Manchester City in the second position and 5 behind Arsenal, who have the game in their hand.

Ten Hag said that Leicester is a big team and they have well, which made it tough for them. He said that it was also by them but they did not follow the principles and rules of the game from their way of play and then get punished.
