United falls apart

MILTON KEYNES, United Kingdom - Manchester United sank to new depths on Tuesday when they crashed out of the League Cup in the second round following a 4-0 defeat at third-division Milton Keynes Dons.

United had announced the signing of Angel di Maria from Real Madrid in a British-record STG59.7 million ($F186 million) deal shortly before kick-off, but they were brought down to earth with a painful bump as a second-string team fell apart at Stadium MK.

Will Grigg scored either side of halftime for the League One side before Benik Afobe added a double of his own to leave a shell-shocked Louis van Gaal still searching for his first competitive win as United manager.

United's defeat mirrored what had happened on their last appearance in the second round in 1995, when they fell to third-tier York City, and means a potential path to silverware has been shut off before the end of August.
