Richard Keys says Wout Weghorst is the ‘worst player ever to wear Man Utd shirt’

Richard Keys has claimed that Wout Weghorst is the worst player to ever play for Manchester United – in an explosive comment on his blog.

Weghorst was part of the United side that was on the end of a 7-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool over the weekend. The Dutchman was played as a 'No.10' in behind Marcus Rashford on Sunday.

And Keys wrote in his blog: "He has to be the worst player I’ve ever seen in a United jersey. He’s a bang-ordinary No.9, who couldn’t get in a struggling Burnley team.

"What on earth possesses Seven Hag to think he’s a sumptuous 10? Come on. It’s a joke and the manager has got to give up pretending that Weghorst has got something to offer.

"He’s not a ‘pressing monster’. He doesn’t ‘make runs’ because he can’t run. And he doesn’t score goals. You can’t start him!"

United fans have been in awe of the big Dutchman's technical ability since he arrived on loan from Burnley in January. However, he's only found the net once for the Red Devils since his arrival, in the Carabao Cup final.

Weghorst was embroiled in more controversy on Sunday, after footage emerged of the United star touching the 'This is Anfield' sign as he entered the pitch.

The Dutchman has since said: "Normally I never react on media topics, but for this one, it’s worth it because you amazing United fans are important to me. So I just want to clarify the video that is doing the rounds.

"From the national team, I know that Virgil always touches that sign and I went to stop him touching it to try and wind him up before the game. As a child I always supported FC Twente, and as a player now for Manchester United, my dedication to this incredible club can never be questioned.

"Sunday was a terrible day for all of us, we are putting everything into making it right in the next weeks. We will bounce back together and achieve our aims this season."
