Dwight Yorke: Players must take their share of the blame for Manchester United’s troubles

Dwight Yorke has insisted that Manchester United’s players must take their share of the blame for the team’s troubles this season.

Man United have been roundly criticised over the course of the campaign following some awful performances and results.

The majority of the criticism has been directed at Louis van Gaal, but Yorke insisted that the players have had “too many average games”.

“It isn’t good enough what is happening at the football club and we can point the finger at the manager most of the time but the reality is that the players aren’t performing or doing anything significant,” Yorke said.

“They are huffing and puffing and too many players are having too many average games. It is just not Manchester United. Bar the young players such as Martial I think the so-called stars, the senior players, really haven’t performed. I cannot look at any of them and think they have been outstanding. Normally there is at least one. In Fergie’s days they would all be told they’re leaving the club.”

Yorke has a point, too many of United’s players have let fans down this season, although van Gaal’s tactics and way of playing certainly haven’t helped.

Only David de Gea, Chris Smalling and Anthony Martial can be proud of their performances this term. Given the amount of money that United are paying the players, performances haven’t been up to scratch.
