Wout Weghorst SLAMMED as Man Utd told they're 'playing with ten men most weeks'
- Keys slams Weghorst
- Says Utd are playing with 10 men
- Weghorst has scored only one goal in 10 matches
WHAT HAPPENED? Weghorst drew another blank during United's 3-0 victory over Leicester City on Sunday, which was his 10th appearance since his loan move from Burnley in January. Erik ten Hag has praised the 30-year-old for his work rate and hold-up play, and United are enjoying a positive run of his results with the Dutchman leading the line, but beIN SPORTS presenter Keys does not think he deserves to continue starting every week.
WHAT THEY SAID: Keys was scathing in his assessment of Weghorst when covering United's latest win for beIN SPORTS, as he ranted: "You’re playing with ten men most weeks if he’s in. I mean, he doesn’t do enough to justify a starting place, does he? Come on, let’s be honest!"
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Weghorst's only goal for United so far came in their Carabao Cup semi-final win over Nottingham Forest, but he is still eyeing a permanent move to Old Trafford.
The Burnley loanee has said of his intention to change the club's transfer plans: "It’s a massive club so I will try to do everything as good as I can, and if it will work out it will be a good option."

WHAT NEXT FOR MANCHESTER UNITED? Weghorst will hope to be back in Ten Hag's lineup when United host Barcelona in the second leg of their Europa League play-off tie on Thursday.
