Unsightly action in the Anfield tunnel, Ten Hag and Weghorst spoke up to explain

Wout Weghorst explained the unsightly activity in the Anfield tunnel before the epic ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ between MU and Liverpool began. Erik ten Hag has come under fire for the way he used Wout Weghorst as a striker against Liverpool.


Man United received a heavy and humiliating defeat with a score of 0-7 against Liverpool in the English derby expected by ᴍɪʟʟɪᴏɴs of fans. This is the heaviest defeat in the history of Man United against a great ʀɪᴠᴀʟ and can be considered a stain next to the defeats in the past.

In addition, Man Utd fans also discovered Weghorst was a Liverpool fan. In 2020, the Dutch striker once stated: “I always found Liverpool very special. I still get goosebumps from ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. There are other great English clubs too, and I always liked Milan because so many Dutch played there.”


In the face of a wave of criticism directed at him, Weghorst was forced to speak up. He posted the story on his personal Instagram: “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 proud 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!”

Paul Merson has questioned Erik ten Hag’s use of Wout Weghorst as the Dutch striker receives criticism for his behavior prior to Sunday’s 7-0 loss to Liverpool.

The quality of Weghorst’s performances have been questioned regardless of the tunnel controversy, though Ten Hag has also drawn criticism for the way he used the Dutchman against Liverpool.

After the game at Anfield, Paul Merson had questions about Weghorst’s role.


“Wout Weghorst as a No 10, I’m not having that. How is he a No 10? How is the manager getting away with that?” Merson wrote for Sky Sports.


“It’s Manchester United football club and you’ve got Weghorst as a 10 – he can’t turn and run, he can’t pass through the eye of a needle. What is the thinking?”


Since moving to Old Trafford in the January transfer window, Weghorst has made just 14 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions, scoring just once.


Despite this, some have fiercely defended Weghorst because they believe that his strengths lie in the way he engages others in the game. The advantages of having a large target man on the team have been enjoyed by players like Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

Weghorst was a key element of Man United’s Carabao Cup campaign.


Weghorst is expected to play a key role for the remainder of Man United’s season as they pursue success in the Europa League and the FA Cup, even though it is unlikely that he will be given the opportunity to sign a permanent contract at Old Trafford.
