Manchester United fans have been left divided after striker Wout Weghorst posted a controversial Instagram post following his side’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.
The Dutchman, who joined the Red Devils from Wolfsburg in the summer, was seen touching the famous ‘This is Anfield’ sign as he left the pitch after the game.
The post, which was accompanied by the caption ‘This is Anfield’, has been met with a mixed reaction from United fans, with some accusing Weghorst of ‘trying to win them back’ after a difficult start to the season.
Weghorst has endured a difficult start to life at Old Trafford, having failed to score in his first seven appearances for the club.
The 27-year-old has also been criticised for his lack of work rate and his tendency to drift out of games.
However, his post has been seen by some as a sign of his commitment to the club and a way of trying to win back the fans.
Others have accused Weghorst of being disrespectful to the club and its supporters, with some even calling for him to be sold in the January transfer window.
The post has also sparked debate among United fans about the club’s current situation, with some arguing that the team needs to show more fight and passion in order to turn their season around.
Weghorst’s post has certainly divided opinion among United fans, but it is clear that the Dutchman is trying to win them back with his controversial Instagram post.
Whether or not it will be enough to turn the tide in his favour remains to be seen, but it is certainly a sign that he is willing to fight for the club and its supporters.
