Keisuke Honda asks Manchester United to sign him on Twitter

Sydney v Melbourne - A-League Semi Final 2

Manchester United haven’t made the greatest start to the 2019/20 season.

Two wins, two draws and two defeats in their six matches so far stinks of mediocrity.

Needing penalties to beat League One Rochdale with a strong line-up in midweek certainly didn’t help matters.

And the club are experiencing something of an injury crisis ahead of their clash against Arsenal on Monday.

The Red Devils will be without Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford when Unai Emery’s side visit Old Trafford.

United are in such a bad way that free agents are offering to help out - literally.

33-year-old Japan legend Keisuke Honda has taken to Twitter to ask the club if they would be willing to offer him a contract.

“Give me an offer. I don't need money but I need to play with great team and great team mate” he tweeted.

Great team and great teammates? We think Honda is asking the wrong club…

Honda - who has represented his country 98 times scoring 37 goals - was last seen playing for Melbourne Victory in Australia.

He lasted just one season down under - but he did manage seven goals in 16 appearances.

During his peak, though, Honda was at CSKA Moscow for four seasons before signing for AC Milan on a free transfer.

He played 92 times for the San Siro club.

While he’s currently a free agent in terms of his playing career, Honda is also general manager and coach of the Cambodia national team.

He can play anywhere across the midfield and can take a mean free-kick.

United can certainly do worse right now…
