“Joke” – Mark Goldbridge reacts as shock Man Utd report emerges earlier

Samuel Luckhurst has come under fire from Manchester United commentator and web host Mark Goldbridge for allegedly making “continuous attacks” on the team’s younger players.

According to a recent shocking story from the Manchester Evening News, Goldbridge has attacked the author of the article and stated that “many Manchester United players remain unconvinced by Rasmus Hojlund and are reluctant to pass the ball to him.”

The team’s seasonlong suffering was made worse by their 1-0 loss to Arsenal at home on Sunday, which put them in free fall and put their chances of playing in Europe next season in jeopardy.

Goldbridge calls out journalist over United criticism

The club have severely underperformed this season 

They have given up 82 goals in all competitions, the most since the 1970–71 season, and are currently tied for the worst record for home losses. There are serious problems on the field that need to be fixed this summer.

After spending an estimated £72 million to acquire Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta, Red Devils supporters would have assumed they could relax about their striking situation. However, so far this season, the 21-year-old striker has not been able to give Erik ten Hag’s team a reliable attacking outlet.

Posting on X, Goldbridge made his feelings clear on the story about Hojlund, saying:

“Luckhurst’s constant attack on young players is joke.”

According to a confidant who knows a member of the United squad, the story goes on to say that players are reportedly looking for other choices while attacking and choosing not to pass to the striker.

After an outstanding midseason run, Hpjlund’s form has declined, and he hasn’t played for the Red Devils for ninety minutes since the team’s FA Cup victory over Coventry City on April 21 at Wembley.

According to the BBC, Hojlund only made 14 touches of the ball in Sunday’s loss to the Gunners; his lone goal since February came against the dreadful Sheffield United.

United Went for Hojlund When They Couldn’t Sign Kane

Ten Hag has admitted he wanted the Bayern Munich striker 

The Old Trafford team was repeatedly linked to Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane during multiple transfer windows. However, as the story also details, the club decided against pursuing the number-nine, who was eventually heading for Bayern Munich.

Even early this month, Ten Hag acknowledged that Kane was the striker he had hoped to sign in the summer.

Though he was a part of a rather dismal Manchester United team, the young, strong, international center-forward did not seem like a wise addition at the time and has not been able to translate his Serie A form to the Premier League thus far.

With a new manager potentially incoming this summer as part of the reshuffle planned by the INEOS group, plenty of time remains for the striker to crack on and become a United hero.
