Nothing to say? Humiliated Man United players (and their PR teams) stay SILENT on social media after Liverpool drubbing – resisting the usual ‘vanilla’ platitudes after another inexcusable performance
- Manchester United suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Monday
- Jurgen Klopp’s Reds tore the Red Devils apart in a 5-0 mauling at Anfield
- United’s players have remained silent on social media after their woeful display
- Gary Neville has previously criticised players’ ‘inauthentic’ posts after games
Manchester United’s humiliated stars have remained silent on social media after they were embarrassed by Liverpool for a second time this season.
Ralf Rangnick’s side slumped to a 4-0 defeat at Anfield on Tuesday, after losing 5-0 in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford.
The defeat has been with a deafening silence on social media from a squad used to posting after matches.
After scraping past rock-bottom Norwich at the weekend the Red Devils’ stars took to social media posting the ‘vanilla, sanitised messages’ despised so much by Gary Neville.
However, there has not been a peep from any of the players – or their personal social media gurus – after the Anfield shocker.

Neville has been scathing of how players do not control their own social media accounts to engage with supporters.
Writing in his column for The Times last November, Neville claimed the players were being treated ‘like fools’ because having a social media manager suggests they ‘can’t be trusted to be themselves’.

Neville said: ‘There are characters inside the Manchester United dressing room that I greatly admire not just for their football abilities but their human qualities — vulnerabilities, resilience, sense of humour and all the things that make them distinct. I don’t recognise them at all when I see some of their social media posts.
‘I see vanilla, sanitised messages. I read apologies that don’t come over sincerely to me or any United fan. I see half the dressing room posting almost identically-worded tweets like they are reading off a script. And not just at United.’
