Kenny Cunningham has sent WhatsApp groups around the country into fits of hysteria with an absolutely baffling comment after Manchester United’s Super Cup clash with Real Madrid.
For those who may not have watched a lot of football last season, Ander Herrera was comfortably Manchester United’s standout performer and, when the season came to a close, the Spaniard deservedly won the club’s player of the season award.
In fact, so impressive was the 27-year-old that many United fans have suggested that Herrera is now destined to become the next long serving Old Trafford captain.
However, despite the fact that he often offers his services as a professional pundit, it seems Kenny Cunningham hasn’t really been keeping his eye on Herrera’s progress.
Speaking after United’s 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in what was essentially a glorified friendly, the former Irish international announced that Herrera simply isn’t good enough for United and that he needs to be replaced… by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Kenny Cunningham: Herrera's not up to it
Darragh Moloney: Herrera was their Player of the Year last season?
Kenny Cunningham: I don't care

Sounds like Kenny Cunningham has been dipping in to Uncle Eamon's half time RTE stash… Oxlade-Chamberlein? Jaysus Kenny….

Kenny Cunningham should be sacked on the spot for claiming United should break the bank to sign Ox-Chamberlain as he's "better than Herrera"
