Manchester United Home Defeat: ‘United Slow like Snail’ – Nemanja Vidic

Manchester United’s former captain, Nemanja Vidic has said that the players were “too slow” and took “too many touches” in their shock 1-0 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United’s loss confirmed Manchester City as Premier League champions, with Jay Rodriguez scoring the only goal of the match as the league’s bottom club picked up a shocker three points.

Vidic, who won five Premier League titleswhile still playing for the club, has said that he would like to see Manchester United “play faster”, particularly against the lesser teams.

“It was too slow, which was disappointing. That is my worry, I’d like to see United playing faster, quicker with the ball. It’s too many touches, that’s the problem, especially against smaller teams.

“They have a good team, good players, but sometimes I think the players have to show desire, show energy, run more than other teams.

“They didn’t move well without the ball, they didn’t move fast. The players didn’t perform the way they wanted. It’s sad to see Man United lose at home to West Brom, a team who have won just three games all season,” Vidic told Sky Sports News.

This weekend, United will be taking on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
