Tyson Fury slams “s****” going on at Man Utd and wants “prima donnas” binned off

Tyson Fury has slammed Manchester United as a team full of prima donnas before urging for a squad clearout this summer.

The Manchester-born heavyweight boxing champion is a lifelong fan and has been spotted at Old Trafford on several occasions. But while Fury’s stock has continued to rise over the past decade into becoming arguably the greatest boxer in the world, United have declined significantly.

And the Gypsy King, who is undefeated as a professional fighter, is self-confessedly sick of the Red Devils’ constant losing. After another trophyless season and various reports of in-fighting, Fury has called for the club to implement a clearout as Erik ten Hag takes charge.

Fury told The Mirror: “I’ll be getting to Old Trafford a little bit more now I’m retired although, to be honest, every time I go there to watch them, they lose. And I don’t do second place, I don’t do losing, I don’t do all that s****. It’s win or nothing, so watching United at the moment, it’s crazy because I don’t get why these people aren’t running after that ball for 90 minutes.

“A lot of people blame the managers, the coaches, but at the end of the day there are too many prima donnas at Manchester United and the best thing that could have happened is having a clearout, like what’s happening. They need to knuckle down.

"They need someone strict, like Sir Alex Ferguson, who’s going to tell them what to do and if they’re not listening say, ‘It’s the bench for you, I don’t care how good you are or how famous you are, you’re not playing until you decide to work hard’.

United finished sixth last season in the Premier League, losing 12 games as squad morale appeared to worsen. After a hugely disappointing spell in charge, Ralf Rangnick will be succeeded by ex-Ajax manager Ten Hag, though Fury believes the mindset of the whole club must change back to a winning one.

He added: “The word ‘team’ means everybody pulls their own weight, they don’t rely on someone else to score the goals or to run for them.

What do you think Man United have to change in order to compete again? Let us know in the comments section.

"It’s everyone working hard for a common interest, a common goal, and that’s winning. I know nothing about managing football but I know everything about winning and I know everybody has to muck in to get results. If I go into the gym on my own to train for a world title then I’m not going to be that successful.

“Which is why I have a full team — my masseuse, my strength-and-conditioning guy, my sparring partners, coaches, that sort of stuff — and we’re all pulling in the same direction to go in there and get results, because that’s what’s needed. If some of these guys are pulling in different directions and doing it for their own benefit, we wouldn’t be getting the results year in, year out.”
