Manchester United urgently recruited a striker on loan. The British media was concerned by listing the cases of Manchester United’s previous January scout failures.
The British ‘Mirror’ introduced ‘Man United’s 8 Worst January Recruitment Mistakes’ on the 13th (Korean time). Among them, Dengfangzhou in China was also included.
Previously, Manchester United had an emergency transfusion of tall striker Baut Behorst from Besiktas.
Behorst is a veteran striker who made his professional debut in 2012. But it’s not at all a career suited to Manchester United. I’ve never played in the top 5 European leagues, let alone a big club. He was selected to represent the Netherlands at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and scored two goals.
It is a situation where an anxious voice is likely to emerge.
Manchester United’s center forward position was like a ticking time bomb. They had two players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Anthony Martial. Ronaldo’s performance has plummeted this season. Martial’s frequent injuries have put a question mark on his consistency. 메이저놀이터
Even in November, he broke the contract after a feud with Ronaldo. Only one center forward, Martial, remains.
In addition, they lost to Liverpool in the scouting match for attacker Cody Gakpo, which they had been working hard on since June. The forward recruited in haste was Behorst.
In response, Mirror said, ‘The January transfer window is a notoriously difficult time to do business. Despair often leads to failure. Manchester United also suffered significant setbacks in January. Manchester United are currently pinning their hopes on Behorst. I can only hope that Be Horst will not follow in the footsteps of his past,’ he explained.
The Mirror has named Manchester United’s 8 worst January signings. Alexis Sanchez (2018), Deng Fangzhou (2004), Manucho (2008), Diego Forlan (2002), Victor Valdes (2015), Zoran Tosic (2009), Rich De Laet (2009), There are familiar names such as Sadiq El Fituri (2015), but there are also many very unfamiliar players.
At that time, Deng Fangzhou became the first Chinese player to join the big club Man Utd and drew a lot of attention. However, he failed to score a goal in just one appearance in the Premier League for three and a half years. He remains a failure.
