Man United Humiliated, Sings Di Maria

Published by Daily Times on Thu, 28 Aug 2014


Manchester United sank to new depths on Tuesday when they crashed out of the League Cup in the second round following a 4-0 defeat at third-division Milton Keynes Dons.United had announced the signing of Angel di Maria from Real Madrid in a British-record 59.7 million ($98 million, 75 million euros) deal shortly before kick-off, but they were brought down to earth with a painful bump as a second-string team fell apart at Stadium MK.Will Grigg scored either side of half-time for the League One side before Benik Afobe added a brace of his own to leave a shell-shocked Louis van Gaal still searching for his first competitive win as United manager.Uniteds defeat mirrored what had happened on their last appearance in the second round in 1995, when they fell to third-tier York City, and means a potential path to silverware has been shut off before the end of August.Van Gaal made 10 changes to his starting XI, with goalkeeper David de Gea the only player to hold onto his place from Sundays 1-1 draw at Sunderland in the Premier League.The visitors received an early setback when Shinji Kagawa had to go off after a clash of heads and in the 25th minute they gifted their hosts the lead.Jonny Evans, Uniteds captain for the day, passed the ball straight to Ben Reeves inside his own area and the Dons number 10 squared to Grigg for a simple tap-in.The home side were aggrieved not to have been awarded a penalty early in the second half when a shot from Dean Bowditch struck Evans on the arm, but in the 63rd minute they added a second goal.After United again conceded possession cheaply, Grigg sprayed a pass wide to Reeves, who crossed for Grigg to beat De Gea with an outrageous chested finish from 10 yards.There was more misery to come for United, whose seventh-place finish last season was their worst since 1990.With 20 minutes remaining, Reeves displayed his disdain for the visiting defence with a showy no-look through ball for substitute Afobe, who held his nerve to sweep the ball past De Gea.Belatedly, United rallied, with Adnan Januzaj hitting the post, but with six minutes left Afobe charged through three weak challenges before slamming home to complete a humiliating night for English footballs misfiring giants.
