After failing to ignite the Emirates during the Europa League match against Arsenal,did not hide his annoyance. The Dutch international struggled to make an impact in England after experiencing life in the Premier League during PSV’s 1-0 Europa League loss to Arsenal. The winger, who has been in incredible form this year with 13 goals and 11 assists, was unable to perform against the Premier League leaders because of a lack of service.
Gakpo was obviously unhappy with his performance and was disappointed at the outcome. Both the environment and the team were excellent. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to achieve our goal. He told Football.London before leaving the stadium that it wasn’t a thrill to play here, more like a little bit frustrating.
Gakpo was on United’s list of potential targets during the last transfer window, but they ultimately decided to sign Antony from Ajax. The Dutchman revealed how close he came to finalizing a transfer to Old Trafford after chatting to manager Erik ten Hag a few times. The Dutchman scored 21 goals in all competitions for PSV in 2021–22. The winger will return to play on Sunday in the Eredivise against Groningen, but he will be anxious to show his mettle in the rematch against Arsenal next week at his old haunt.
