Gabriel Agbonlahor, a former striker for Aston Villa, claimed that Manchester United’s Casemiro performed like he was 45 years old in Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Brighton.
Three goals from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Joao Pedro doomed Erik ten Hag’s squad to their third loss of the year.
A consolation goal by Mejbri Hannibal helped the home team.
Agbonlahor said after the game that United’s midfield and defense let Brighton roll at Old Trafford.
‘Where do I even begin? At Old Trafford, Brighton completed 659 passes.
The percentage of possession gained by having more shots on goal is 57%. For Brighton, it was a piece of cake.
Casemiro’s midfield performance belied his age of 45.
“He had to bring him (Casemiro) off in the 65th minute for Hannibal, a young lad, because he was that bad,” Agbonlahor said on talkSPORT.
United’s Champions League match against Bayern Munich is scheduled for Wednesday night.
