The former Aston Villa striker, Agbonlahor was left disappointed with what Manchester United played with the game with AC Milan in their last Europa League clash that led to a 1-1 draw.
Despite being second best for much of Thursday’s last-16 first leg, the Red Devils looked prepared to travel down to San Siro next week, it was fabulous teenage substitute Amad Diallo’s first goal for the club.
The 18-year-old became the club’s fourth youngest European goalscorer, he had a superb, improvised header – a fine effort that was cancelled out deep in stoppage time.
United’s soft underbelly from set pieces was exposed when Simon Kjaer met a corner with a header that Dean Henderson will be frustrated not to have kept out as the first leg ended 1-1.
And Agbonlahor criticised the Red Devils for playing the match with the Serie A side ‘like a friendly game”
Simon Kjaer grabbed a 92nd minute equaliser for AC Milan at Old Trafford it was such a fascinating goal.
He said: “I think you see how they are playing against Manchester City; right from the beginning of the game, dominating the game, scoring an early goal and having a couple of chances.
“if you look at the game tonight and you would think, ‘Did they’d forget the game was a big game as anything?’
“They treated it like it was a friendly, there were not in the game at all in the first half. I know they were missing the energy of Fred and Rashford and Luke Shaw at left-back.
But, for me, it was a poor performance for most of the game and I think they are going to regret giving that away goal to AC Milan because I thought AC Milan were excellent.
“They’re better than what I thought, because I’ve not really watched them much this season. It’s going to be a tough return leg for Manchester United.”
Rivals Man City are closing in on yet another Premier League title, with the chance to win an unprecedented quadruple a real possibility for Pep Guardiola.
Conversely, United can only hope for second place at best in the Premier League and face Leicester City in the FA Cup as well as having to beat Milan in the second leg next week if they want to win silverware.
In his two years at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has failed to bring a trophy to the club and has spent almost £300million in his bid to arrest the lack of silverware.
Yet Agbonlahor believes there may be some outgoings first, citing Daniel James as a prime example.
