Tyson Fury vows to visit Man Utd with Patrice Evra to give squad "some of that"

Tyson Fury has threatened to go down to Manchester United’s training ground and give the players “some of that hard word” after their derby defeat by Manchester City.

United were embarrassed by City in the Premier League on Saturday, falling to a 2-0 loss at Old Trafford.

City dominated the match from start to finish and would have won by a far greater margin had it not been for David de Gea.

Eric Bailly’s own goal from Joao Cancelo’s cross gave Pep Guardiola’s side the lead after seven minutes.

They doubled it before the break when Bernardo Silva beat De Gea by turning in another Cancelo cross at the back post.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side managed just one shot on target throughout a miserable 90 minutes at Old Trafford and big United fan Fury was not happy with what he saw.


The WBC heavyweight champion took to Twitter to vent his frustrations in a brutal assessment of his team.

"After today's defeat to City it is fair to say United are taking a worse beating than Deontay Wilder took in all his fights versus me,” he said.

"They're getting absolutely smashed out there and I think partly it's because the players – no disrespect to any of you – but it doesn't seem to me like you're digging deep to try and win these games.

"When I fought Wilder and I was on the floor – and any other man I've ever fought – I never ever believed I was going to lose the fight.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Do you agree with Tyson Fury? Comment below.

"I always believed I would come back and win, that's called a winner's mentality. And that's something in the last few games that you guys just have not had.

"I think me and Patrice Evra are going to come down to training and give you some of that hard word, what you need.

"See you all soon. Be prepared."

Whether Fury follows through on his promise remains to be seen, but he is already having an influence on United, with Solskjaer evoking the boxer’s attitude in a press conference after the 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool.

“I use the analogy that it felt like we were a boxer being punch drunk, knocked down in the first four mins or first round,” Solskjaer said.

“We had a chance, we conceded a goal, we wanted to sort it out, and went a bit too open and too frantic against a good team.

“You see Tyson Fury when he gets knocked down a few times, it's remarkable how composed he is and takes a count of five, six seven, he gets up and goes again.

“We got up too early and tried to sort it. Minds have to be better but we've had to look at different things as well, the communication has to be direct.”

United can put that into practice when they play Watford on November 20 after the international break.
