    Manchester United fans have slammed "shameless" striker Wout Weghorst for touching the 'This is Anfield' sign.

    Weghorst was hauled off when Liverpool were three goals to the good in the 7-0 demolition of their rivals on Sunday (March 5), having failed to have any impact on the game. But it's his actions pre-match which have left a sour taste in the mouth of the Red Devils' devastated fanbase.

    In their arch-rivals' behind-the-scenes video of the match, which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, the Dutch international could be seen giving the famous This is Anfield sign a pat as the two sides walked out – something traditionally done by Liverpool players and fans.

    That didn't sit well with a lot of United supporters. One tweeted: "Shocking. They always find a way to make the humiliation worse. Shameless, absolutely shameless."

    Another fumed: "The standards of this club are so far gone that Weghorst probably thinks United is a stepping stone club to join Liverpool like Southampton. No other manager let's that slide. Ten Hag brought him in. Let's see how he deals with it."

    A third argued: "The fact people want him on permanent in general is actually embarrassing. I'd rather have Danny Welbeck back than him."

    What do you think of Weghorst touching the sign? Let us know in the comments section.

    "Get that loan terminated immediately," commented a fourth, while a fifth echoed: "Cancel his loan immediately."

    And a sixth said: "Ronaldo 'disrespected the club' for speaking the truth apparently. Meanwhile this is his replacement, actually disrespecting the club. When's the contract getting terminated? I don't make the rules but on this occasion I am happy to follow them. Hope this helps."

    Weghorst was a fan of Liverpool growing up and told DAZN in 2020: "I always found Liverpool very special. I still get goosebumps from ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. There are other great English clubs too, and I always liked Milan because so many Dutch played there."

    The hammering by Liverpool was United's joint-heaviest ever defeat and their biggest loss since a 7-0 mauling by Wolves in the second division in December 1931 – 92 years ago.
