Manchester United managed to win against Wolves. Erik ten Hag's team showed calmness and focus. However, the Wolves looked more dangerous and it seemed that they would get an equalizer. Garry Neville, the legend of United, gave his commentary on the game of the Red Devils after the end of the match.
Neville believes that Sofyan Amrabat would be a great reinforcement for Manchester United in tandem with Casemiro. ‘They are trying to sign, or were trying to sign, Sofyan Amrabat we believe, to go in there alongside Casemiro.
I don’t know [who Erik ten Hag would drop] but they want to buy Sofyan Amrabat for a reason. One thing that Erik ten Hag is not going to do is go back to the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay who he believes are technically not good enough on the ball.'
- he said, as quoted by METRO.
Neville is particularly worried about Manchester United's midfield, which looked unrecognizable in last night's match. Casemiro, Fernandes and Mount did not succeed in their intentions.
The arrival of Amrabat would certainly mean greater security in the midfield. Amrabat showed at the World Cup that he is a great player, and attracted the attention of a large number of clubs. His performances in Serie A also attracted the interest of European giants.
‘He wants everybody in the team to be able to accept the football and receive it. Sofyan Amrabat coming in, he is a passer of the ball and can sit in there alongside Casemiro. Casemiro got absolutely torn to shreds tonight.
Man Utd’s midfield were non-existent and they were absolutely ripped apart. Wolves were absolutely fantastic. Manchester United’s midfield was non-existent, it emptied. That would have been a real worry for Erik ten Hag.
Wolves were brilliant tonight, they had everything but a goal. Manchester United were outplayed and can feel very fortunate to come away with three points because they didn’t deserve it.’
