Thierry Henry: Man United are boring to watch

Thierry Henry runs the rule over Manchester United's boring performances

Thierry Henry has sympathised with Manchester United fans after he admitted Louis van Gaal’s side are boring to watch.

The Red Devils suffered a 1-0 loss to Southampton at Old Trafford on Saturday after the home side registered one shot on target against the Saints.

Southampton had lost their four previous away games in the Premier League but new signing Charlie Austin headed an 87th-minute winner for the visitors to secure successive victories at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal’s side have only scored 12 goals in 11 games at Old Trafford in the Premier League so far this season.

Former Arsenal striker Henry didn’t hold back in his assessment of the struggling 20-time English champions.

Henry told Sky Sports: “They don’t dominate any more. They are pretty boring. It is boring to watch Manchester United at the moment.”

Henry added that the only United game he has enjoyed this season was their 3-3 draw with Newcastle United earlier this month.

Henry said: “The only game I actually enjoyed and it wasn’t an amazing game, but because Man United and Newcastle scored three goals, I ended up enjoying the game.”
