‘Awful player’: Manchester United star singled out for criticism following poor start vs Villarreal
A Manchester United star has come in for heavy criticism online following a poor start in the clash with Villarreal.
Villarreal vs Manchester United
Manchester United are currently locked in Champions League action with Villarreal at the El Madrigal Stadium.
Manchester United would start the day top of their Champions League group after notching seven points from their previous four outings.
However, the Red Devils were only 1st due to them having scored more goals than Villarreal. And, with 3rd place Atalanta starting the day on five points, United are well aware they could end the day down in 3rd should they lose to Unai Emery’s side.
The game on Tuesday started with Manchester United very much on the back foot.
Michael Carrick made a number of changes for the tie, which included moving Cristiano Ronaldo out to the left-wing when United had the ball and also dropping Bruno Fernandes for Donny van de Beek.
So far, though, these changes do not appear to have made much of a positive impact on the Red Devils.
And though no United players have really covered themselves in glory yet, one player in particular has come in for heavy criticism against Villarreal.
That man is Alex Telles, who is starting at left-back in place of Luke Shaw. The Brazilian, though, has looked pretty poor defensively and offered little going forward.
As a result, Telles has been targeted quite heavily online, with just some of the reaction to the defender’s display shown below:
Telles playing crap at the moment

Telles has been awful on the ball. That’s the 3rd time he’s cost possession

Telles defending is quite poor. Partially why I hardly complain about Shaw
