Robbie Savage criticises Manchester United's 'unacceptable' start to the season

Robbie Savage has launched a scathing attack on Manchester United and Louis van Gaal after Sunday’s derby defeat.

The Red Devils slumped to a 1-0 loss at Etihad Stadium as Sergio Aguero netted a second-half winner after Chris Smalling was sent off in the first half.

The defeat left United ninth in the table on 13 points after 10 games, and former Birmingham City midfielder Savage has not been impressed by the Red Devils’ recent form.

“Manchester United are level on points with West Brom,” Savage told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think Alan Irvine is doing a great job there, but United have spent £150m on new players and that is unacceptable.

“When are we going to start asking serious questions of Louis van Gaal in press conferences because I haven’t heard it yet?”
