It would only be fair to say Michael Owen tore into Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat in the Manchester derby.
In many ways, it’s just what the team deserved after putting in another lacklustre performance against one of our biggest rivals. They all know it’s not good enough and apologies on social media mean nothing at this stage.
Owen, who spent three years at Old Trafford, used Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as a prime example to demonstrate how the German decided how his team were going to play after becoming a Premier League manager.

While it wasn’t quite as bad as the 5-0 defeat against Liverpool, it wasn’t much better considering how City took their foot from the gas in the second half.
Something has to change if United want to get back to winning league titles.
Though, I wouldn’t be taking any football advice from Owen as he’s one of the blandest pundits in the game.
