The Holland worldwide’s ungainly type and selfless angle has seen him obtain one thing near cult-hero standing at Outdated Trafford since his January mortgage transfer from Burnley, regardless of having scored solely as soon as in 14 appearances.
With Cristiano Ronaldo exiled, Anthony Martial nearly completely injured and the Glazer household unwilling to loosen the purse strings in January, Ten Hag was compelled to accept a stop-gap answer.
Ten Hag has been vociferous in his reward of Weghorst and extremely values his contribution to the staff, however beIN Sports activities presenter Keys can’t fathom the choice to experiment with the 30-year-old as a makeshift No.10.

‘Come on. It’s a joke and the supervisor has bought to surrender pretending that Weghorst has bought one thing to supply.
‘He’s not a ‘urgent monster’. He doesn’t ‘make runs’ as a result of he can’t run. And he doesn’t rating targets. You’ll be able to’t begin him – push Fernandes left and depart £80m Sancho on the bench. Too intelligent Erik. Far too intelligent.’
Keys was equally dismissive of summer season recruit Antony whose kind has deteriorated quickly since making a shiny begin to his United profession.
‘Lastly Antony,’ Keys added. ‘Any person has bought to assist him. All he’s bought proper now could be a step over, roll the ball, step inside and attempt to discover the underside nook.
