Chris Sutton Reveals Three Players Humiliated By Ten Hag In Man United Defeat To Brentford.. Former Chelsea striker, Chris Sutton has noted that Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag gave his three players ‘the ultimate humiliation for a footballer’ during their 4-0 defeat to Brentford on Saturday.
According to him, the most humiliating thing for a player is substituting them at half-time when they’re not injured.
Sutton said that Lisandro Martinez was one of those players humiliated by Tuchel, adding that the new signing is already being viewed as a weak link.
It came as a rude shock to many Red Devils’ supporters when United were bashed 4-0 by the lowly rated Premier League side on Saturday.
Understandably, Ten Hag hauled off Martinez, Luke Shaw and Fred at the break, throwing on Rafael Varane, Tyrell Malacia and Scott McTominay, to no avail.
Sutton noted that Martinez was bullied by Brentford’s forwards, as he was targeted by Brighton’s strikers in the opening defeat of the campaign.
“Martinez was one of three men hooked at half-time by Erik ten Hag on Saturday – the ultimate humiliation for a footballer – and it’s been a rough welcome to the Premier League for him,” Sutton told Mail Plus.
“After seeing Martinez dominated individually, other strikers will be targeting him now. I know I would.
“Brighton did it last weekend, abandoning their usual plan of playing out from the back to send long balls towards Martinez.
“Brentford saw that and targeted him, too…”
