Man United name shock defensive four… Twitter reacts

Louis van Gaal has spent over £250m on new players since taking over at Manchester United in 2014. That’s a lot of money in anyone’s book. However, as his side walk out to face Bournemouth in about 30 minutes, they will do so with a back four consisting of Paddy McNair, Daley Blind, Guillermo Varela and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.

That’s a defensive midfielder and three rookies, by the way.

Okay, LVG’s hand has been rather forced by injuries picked up by Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian in midweek, but United should be able to field a stronger siude given their financial muscle.

The quartet may prove to be good enough through the 90 minutes, but that hasn’t stopped lots of Twitter users from dishing out the ‘bantz’… and here are some of the best tweets!
