There were calls from others for the club to go out and sign Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez for £60million.
It’s not just United fans who have been critical of the error. Match of the Day host Gary Lineker tweeted his view of the mistake and called it an ‘absolute howler’ from the United ‘keeper.
Lineker continued to lambast United and their first half performance at the Brentford Community Stadium, calling the 4-0 scoreline ‘extraordinary’ and that even by Manchester United’s standard’s the goals were woeful to conceded.

Desilva’s goal was followed by further strikes from Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee and Bryan Mbuemo as Frank’s team ran riot on United in the first half.
Ten Hag hooked new signing Lisandro Martinez at the break, bringing on Raphael Varane as the Dutchman looked to salvage something from the humiliating defeat.
But Brentford comfortably saw the game out as they claimed a famous 4-0 win that heaps misery on crisis-ridden United after they lost their opening game of the season to Brighton last Sunday.
Fans suggested that De Gea should be sold and called for possible replacements for the star
