Manchester United: Fans slam Alex Telles display

Manchester United: Fans slam Alex Telles display -Manchester United News

Many Manchester United fans have been left slamming the display of Alex Telles despite their 2-0 win away at Villarreal on Tuesday evening.

Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho were enough to give Michael Carrick his first three points as interim manager and put the Old Trafford side through to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.

However, while a lot of the team stepped up their game, Telles seemed to struggle for large periods after being given his chance to impress.

Should Telles start for Manchester United?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The left-back lost out on two of his duels, and also failed to record a dribble, clearance, blocked shot or tackle in the match (SofaScore).

Some Red Devils were critical of his wastefulness from set pieces and crossing in general, as he only managed one successful cross in nine attempts, and the Brazilian was also guilty of losing possession of the ball on no fewer than on 18 separate occasions in total, double his next-worst teammate (SofaScore).

These MUFC supporters slammed his performance on Twitter, with one even going as far as to claim that he is a ‘liability’:

“Alex Telles is always a disaster waiting to happen. Him and Maguire on the same side is just a defensive suicide squad.”

“Ole got a lot of things wrong but one thing I can actually say he never got wrong was not starting Telles. Another abysmal half. Him and Dalot for me should be sold. Boring half of football”

“The good news is we haven’t conceded, need a much better 2nd half though. Telles, Martial, Sancho and Fred very poor, I could keep going.”
