Man Utd flops arrive for training on Bank Holiday after shock Crystal Palace loss as Schmeichel demands club clear out deadwood before transfer window shuts – The SunAugust 26, 2019
MANCHESTER UNITED'S flops arrived for training on Bank Holiday Monday following their shock defeat at home to Crystal Palace.
The Red Devils were humbled 2-1 at home to the Eagles in a sub-par defeat – as club legend Peter Schmeichel demanded the club clear out the deadwood before the European transfer window shuts.

The great Dane then finished his message with three angry red-faced emojis before tagging his tweet for the attention of United themselves.
Meanwhile, ex-Crystal Palace chief Simon Jordan revealed United will never get back to the top with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm.
Jordan told talkSPORT: “Looking at that performance; there is no fear factor, nobody cares about Old Trafford in way they once did because that image is gone.
“And I don’t think it is going to come back under the stewardship of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer because part of that image, as we know, was best players winning games.
“But also, there was this figure at the very head of Manchester United as a football operation, which was [Sir Alex] Ferguson.

"I don’t think so…”
