Man Utd "need 15 players" in biggest ever overhaul with new names getting blamed

Gabby Agbonlahor thinks Manchester United need a complete squad overhaul this summer and insists new manager Erik ten Hag has to sign "15 new players" to get the team up to scratch.

The former Aston Villa striker claims that Saturday's humiliating 4-0 defeat to Brighton proves that the players "have no passion" and that Ten Hag won't be able to count on any of them going forward.

"A couple of weeks ago I said that Manchester United need 15 new players and I think people laughed at me, but when you look at that performance, they need 15 new players," Agbonlahor said on talkSPORT.

"Not one of those players in that team will Ten Hag look at and want to play next season. They were not bothered, no passion to play for Manchester United," he added.

"Brighton are a good, good side, but Manchester United should never be losing 4-0 to Brighton, and today they let the club down. The fans are singing 'you're not fit to wear the shirt', all of them were poor today."

Agbonlahor also took a swipe at Raphael Varane, who he claims has been flying under the radar as one of United's most disappointing performers in recent months.

"You can't blame Pogba for [the Brighton defeat], you can't blame Harry Maguire, so maybe players like Varane need calling out because he's been very poor this season, [as well as] others players in that side," Agbonlahor added.

The jarring defeat over the weekend officially confirmed this as United's worst ever season in Premier League history.

Worse still, the club won't be playing Champions League football next year, which means if Ten Hag really is going to land 15 new players this summer, he'll probably have to do a little scrimping.
