Man Utd fan flies over 24 hours from Australia to watch Burnley loss and fears club are becoming the next Sunderland – The Sun

A DISGRUNTLED Manchester United fan who travelled for 24 hours to see his side lose believes they could become the next Sunderland.

The supporter jetted in from Australia to witness Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side crash to a shock 2-0 home defeat to Burnley on Wednesday night.


Another defeat under the Norwegian, their eighth of the campaign, leaves them six points behind Chelsea in fourth.

They also sit level on points with Wolves, one point ahead of Sheffield United and just three above Southampton.

But it is the bigger picture that has Manchester United fans growing increasingly concerned.

The Red Devils unbelievably have less league wins than Burnley since Solskjaer's permanent appointment.

Sunderland, who sit sixth in League One, were in the Premier League for 10 years before their back-to-back relegation from 2017.

And one angry fan believes they could be heading in the same direction.

Speaking outside Old Trafford after defeat to the Clarets, he told @FullTimeDevils: "It was absolutely disgraceful.

"I've flown over 24 hours on a plane from Australia to come to come and watch that, it's not good enough.

"Every manager has started on a high and then just declined and declined.

"I don't see this getting any better. We might even end up like a Sunderland.

"I hate to say that but it's seriously getting to that stage, it's getting absolutely terrible."

Uploading the footage to Twitter, one Mackem fan commented: "bit of an overreaction they are sitting fifth in the league to don't compare their situation to ours."

Another added: "5th in the league, spent £130 million on two defenders in the summer, about to sign a £50 million midfielder. Aye mate you’re exactly like Sunderland, it’s like looking in the mirror."
