Manchester United‘s legendary goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel absolutely annihilated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side after they fell to a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in their third Premier League clash of the season.
Palace took the lead after the half-hour mark as Jordan Ayew scored before Daniel James got United back in the game with a goal late into the second half. However, the Red Devils’ defence went to sleep as Patrick van Aanholt grabbed the win for Palace in the last minute to hand United their first defeat of the season, that too at Old Trafford.
Schmeichel, who featured for Manchester United between the years 1991 to 1999, took to Twitter in order to express his anger at the way the Old Trafford side fell to a defeat against Palace.
There is hope, international transfer window is open for sales until September 2nd😡😡😡@ManUtd

The Danish football legend said: “There is hope, international transfer window is open for sales until September 2nd,” followed by three angry face emojis.
United fans seemed to have liked this tweet coming from a club legend and spoke in unison as they expressed their anger at the way their side fell to defeat at Old Trafford.
Here’s how they reacted:

Some fans really got no chill:
Let them terminate his contract. We don’t need him anymore.

No one wants Lingard and Young but the are our 1st team selections. I hope the I’ll form doesn’t affect Wan-Bissaka and Maguire

Fuck the lot of them. If that’s the best these so called professional footballers can do then fuck them off. I’m sick and tired of watching the same old dross for the past 6 years. We’re no better now than when Moyes took over.

Could do with some sales. Half of the team doesn’t even play and they pocket more.

How about selling the club or someone like you calling the glazers out or as sir Alex silenced you all #Glazersout

Don’t think they’d make it TOP 4 let alone challenging for title. Spineless performance. Bunch of over paid and overrated players. Rashford is a good player but not good enough. And no penalty takers in the team

Even Peter and Edwin combined wouldn’t save this club

No its terrible management!!!! Persisting with Lindgard and Ashey young, not buying proper midfielders this is the board and Ole’s fault

Imagine have Lingard/McTominay and Shaw in your starting line up but act as if Pogba is the problem. Looking forward to the Gary Neville campaign of hate against Pogba for this one.

The problem @ManUtd is this dilusion that there is a @ManUtd way of playing, rubbish. Truth is SAF was a great man manager and great reader of games, heck the old man had a plan B even z. But most importantly everyone wanted to play for him and go through walls for him.

United will be looking to put the extreme disappointment of this loss behind them and get back to winning ways when they take on Southampton next weekend.
