‘Manchester United have got Alan Brazil syndrome, they don’t turn up!’ – Vinnie Jones on talkSPORT
Vinnie Jones believes Manchester United have a severe case of ‘Alan Brazil syndrome’ after watching them get thrashed 4-0 by Everton this weekend.
Like the talkSPORT host on Bank Holiday Easter Monday, the Red Devils just didn’t turn up at Goodison Park.
They were played off the pitch in every aspect by the hungry Toffees, who thumped four brilliant goals past David de Gea to boost them up to seventh in the Premier League.
For United, it was another blow to their top four hopes and the worst possible preparation for this week’s derby clash with noisy neighbours Manchester City.
And Jones says the United players are falling well short of the precedent set by title chasers City and Liverpool this season.
Speaking on Monday’s Sports Breakfast, the footballer-turned-Hollywood hardman said: “I think Manchester United have got Alan Brazil syndrome – they didn’t turn up!
“As a player, you don’t like to lose. You throw your body in front of shots to stop goals and throw yourself into tackles, and we never saw any of that [against Everton].

“When you watch Liverpool and Man City, there are players making fantastic runs, people dying for the cause – that’s what gets you championships.
“United have a massive game coming up against Man City, and if they don’t come out firing on all cylinders now after that result, they’ll be all hell to pay.
