“The goal is comical, laughable. That can only be a player’s fault, that’s not down to the staff or the coaches.”

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand said: “You wouldn’t see this on Hackney Marshes. Where is the defending? There is zero organisation. Where is the person organising that? Absolutely crazy.
