Liverpool legend warns Manchester United over signing Sabitzer

Liv­er­pool leg­end Diet­mar Hamann has warned Man­ches­ter Unit­ed that Mar­cel Sab­itzer may not be ready for the club.

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed con­firmed Sav­itzer’s loan move short­ly after midnight.

The Red Dev­ils have signed Chris­t­ian Erik­sen, who has been side­lined for three months with an ankle injury.

An agree­ment was reached this after­noon with Bay­ern Munich, although there is no option or oblig­a­tion to buy.

The 28-year-old Sab­itzer had reached a per­son­al agree­ment with Unit­ed over a tem­po­rary trans­fer before he was spot­ted at Munich air­port on Tues­day night ahead of his arrival at Old Trafford.

But Haman, who won the Cham­pi­ons League in 2005 and 49, said Sab­itzer could strug­gle as an imme­di­ate force.

But with the deal on loan until the end of the sea­son, Sab­itzer has to get the job done.

“He’s a very ener­getic play­er, has a good engine and can score goals,” Haman told Sky Sports. “I think his best posi­tion is prob­a­bly a lit­tle bit earlier.

I don’t think he’s a defen­sive mid­field­er or a hold­ing midfielder. â€

“It’s quite a sur­prise that Chelsea and Man­ches­ter Unit­ed are inter­est­ed,” because I don’t see him help­ing out any­time soon.

“He’s a good team play­er, but I don’t know if he’s ready to go.”

Haman con­tin­ued: “I think he’s a box-to-box guy and has a good engine.

How­ev­er, Haman added that Sab­itzer has the poten­tial to be a “very good play­er” for the Red Devils.

Chelsea were also rumored to be inter­est­ed in the Aus­tri­an, who joined Bay­ern from RB Leipzig a year and a half ago.

How­ev­er, Haman insist­ed Sab­itzer did not have the same abil­i­ty as Conor Gal­lagher, who has been linked with New­cas­tle and Everton.

“I think (Sab­itzer) would be a very good play­er for Man­ches­ter Unit­ed, but at the same time I’m very sur­prised that Chelsea are think­ing of get­ting rid of Conor Gal­lagher and sign­ing Sab­itzer.” Gal­lagher’s stan­dards because they think they have not reached “It has said.

Sav­itzer has made 24 appear­ances in all com­pe­ti­tions for Bay­ern this sea­son, but has only start­ed sev­en in the Bundesliga.
