Man United fans react to awful Matteo Darmian display vs Basel

Manchester United suffered defeat at the hands of FC Basel in Switzerland on Tuesday evening. And, if we’re being honest, they got exactly what they deserved.

Jose Mourinho’s men played some decent stuff in the first-half without actually finding the back of the net, but during the second 45, they were asking for trouble. Sitting back is never a good idea, particularly against a side who are Champions League calibre.

One player who summed up United’s poor evening is Matteo Darmian. The former Torino man had an absolute nightmare from start to finish. He doesn’t lack the pace required to play as a full-back, he looks lost when in possession and positionally, he’s just awful.

I’ll never understand why Mourinho persists to use him when he has options like Luke Shaw waiting patiently in the wings, but hey-ho, the game is over and nothing can be done about it now.

That didn’t stop Red Devils fans taking to Twitter to absolutely slaughter Darmian, however. He’ll know just how bad he played against Basel, and hopefully, he’ll be looking to right a few wrongs next time out.
