PAUL PARKER PRAISE TO WEGHORST
Speaking to Soccernews, Manchester United legend Paul Parker praised Weghorst:
I think people were too harsh on Weghorst. He’s only played three games and it’s too early to judge him. But here Manchester United and people may judge you. Every single player is under a lot of pressure and they have to deal with it 24 hours a day.
“REMEMBER THAT HE IS NOT RONALDO”
People should not forget that he is not a Ronaldo. Ronaldo was a better football player, but this man offers something different. He works hard and wants to help the club. However, all Ronaldo players slander Weghorst and threaten him. This is, in a word, a disgrace.
“TURKEY IS A CEMETERY LEAGUE”
Paul Parker In the continuation of his words, he used a heavy expression for the Super League.
Note that Weghorst needs to adapt again to playing in England. Came here from Turkey. The Turkish league is like a cemetery where players go to take a vacation or earn money.
