Manchester United fans have expressed frustration with goalkeeper David de Gea following his howl during his side’s game against Brentford on Saturday.

Following the gaffe, United fans took to social media to show their disdain for De Gea’s performance and the error that became the catalyst for the Red Devils’ first-half collapse.

A third added: ‘Please Ten Hag, under De Gea off. It’s a shame. It’s not 2017 anymore.

There have been calls from others for the club to come out and sign Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez for £60million.
It wasn’t just United fans who criticized the error. Match of the Day host Gary Lineker tweeted his take on the error and called it “the absolute howler” of the United keeper.
Lineker went on to castigate United and their first-half performance at the Brentford Community Stadium, calling the 4-0 scoreline “extraordinary” and that even by Manchester United standards the goals were abysmal to concede.

Dasilva’s goal was followed by further strikes from Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo as Frank’s side went wild against United in the first half.
Ten Hag snagged new signing Lisandro Martinez on the break, bringing on Raphael Varane as the Dutchman looked to salvage something from the humiliating defeat.
But Brentford comfortably saw the game end with a famous 4-0 win that wreaked havoc on United in crisis after losing their season opener to Brighton last Sunday.
