Darren Fletcher thinks Steve McManaman, who branded the current Manchester United side the worst he had seen in 20 years, will be eating a large portion of humble pie come the end of the season.

McManaman laid into United following their 2-1 defeat to Swansea on the opening day of the season.

Fletcher thinks ex-Liverpool ace McManaman, and other critics, have been desperate to take pot shots at United as a consequence of their recent success.

“People have been waiting for an opportunity to have a go at United for years and this is the perfect time to do it,” the Manchester United midfielder said.

“It’s a long season and I don’t think they will be saying those things at the end of it. I believe we’re going to have a very good season.”
