Legendary Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson would’ve dropped Fred for a month after his mistake during the 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford, according to former Red Devils ace Owen Hargreaves.
The United midfielder was barged off the ball by Toffees ace Demarai Gray and that led to Andros Townsend’s equaliser.
Hargreaves told Premier League Productions: “Never ever, not in a million years [should that goal be allowed to happen].
“That’s what you get paid for, that’s why you’re there, that’s your job to stop that goal. I would’ve taken that personally. He’s got two cracks at it, and both [times] he loses.
“It can’t happen. Sir Alex wouldn’t forgive you for that, you wouldn’t have played for a month, seriously. He has to win those tackles. And if he loses it, you foul him, you bring him down.
“You’ve got to win that. You cannot get bumped off the ball by Demarai Gray and if he does, you foul him. United don’t have control of games, it’s their corner, how can a goal like that happen?
“I know Harry Maguire is missing and they miss his leadership but if you’re going to play two defensive midfielders in there – [Scott] McTominay and Fred – that goal can’t happen”
