Man Utd fans say ‘we’re finished’ as key new transfer signing ruled out of Brighton clash with ongoing injury

MANCHESTER UNITED fans have claimed they’re “finished” after one of their new signings was ruled out of their Premier League clash with Brighton.

The Red Devils were busy in the transfer market this summer, signing a whopping eight new players before the window closed.

Rasmus Hojland, Mason Mount and Andre Onana were the most expensive of the arrivals, costing £72m, £60m and £47m respectively.

Sofyan Amrabat was another one of their big signings, joining from Fiorentina on loan for the remainder of the season.

The Morocco international has yet to feature for the Red Devils and will miss this afternoon’s clash with Brighton through injury.

United fans took to Twitter to express their frustrations at the midfielder’s absence, with one saying: “What is the strategy behind buying injured players.”

Another said: “We’re finished.”

And another said: “It’s a joke.”

One remarked: “All I can say is it’s the Manchester United way.”

Another chimed in: “I’ll be amazed if we finish in the top five this season. I’m being honest.”


United boss Erik Ten Hag revealed Amrabat’s absence for today’s match at Old Trafford in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

When asked if his new signings will soon be handed their debuts, he said: “I think so, yeah. We are a little bit short of defenders, so [Reguilon] can come quickly.

“Amrabat, he came back unfortunately with the injury, so he will not be available for tomorrow [Saturday], but I think, on the short notice [soon], yes.

“And I’m sure we will all get joy from them.”

United go into their clash with Brighton on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Ten Hag said of the Seagulls’ visit to The Theatre of Dreams: “I love to play them.

“It is not typical and we had two great games against them and it was really head-to-head and we have to play tomorrow at our best.

“They will not let you sacrifice or suffer but also, it [also] gives you a lot of options. I am really looking forward to going into that fight.”
