'That's criminal' – Michael Owen SLAMS two Man Utd players for what they did in pulsating 2-2 draw against Leeds | The Sun

MICHAEL OWEN has hit out at Raphael Varane and Marcus Rashford for their defending against Leeds.

The pair failed to stand tall during a set piece in which Brenden Aaronson almost scored from during the Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

The American had a free-kick that could have put his side 3-1 up in the clash after Rashford's goal got Man United back in the game after Wilfried Gnonto's strike and Varane's own goal.

However, Aaronson had a helping hand with his effort as Rashford and Varane split and turned their back on the ball which almost had disastrous consequences.

The ball went through the wall and hit the base of the post, with David De Gea rooted to the spot.

And former United and Liverpool star Owen had criticised the pair, he told PLP: "I couldn’t believe it, I couldn’t believe this wall.

"Look a this the way they split – Varane and Rashford they just split – the ball goes low, right through the middle, it didn’t go over the wall at all.

"If that goes in, and they both turn away, that’s criminal, that’s criminal.

"I mean, if that goes in there’s serious, serious words being had after. You simply cannot do that.

"You need to be big, brave and bold in a wall and to turn your back and split – everything you cannot do they did there.

"They’ve got away with it.

"They better look at that and think, ‘wow, that’s pretty embarrassing, we can’t do that again’."

The pair's blushes were saved and Jadon Sancho managed to fire in the equaliser for the Red Devils.

The two sides will go head to head again on Sunday.
