Man Utd flop left Michael van Gerwen furious after beating him at darts… with a NINE-DARTER | The Sun
MICHAEL VAN GERWEN was left fuming after being beaten at a game of darts by Wout Weghorst.
The Manchester United star, who is on loan from Burnley, revealed his match with Van Gerwen and how he ended up leaving his Dutch compatriot "a little angry".
Speaking to Sky Sports last year, Weghorst said: "We played once, he was with the national team (to visit).
"He came there on an evening and we just played. It was funny and then at the end, we played from 301.
"We played down and then I beat him. Of course that was crazy, that was really nice.
"But he was a little bit angry and wanted to play two more games and I had no chance."

The 30-year-old then lifted the lid on the "cool" way he beat the former world No1.
He added: "But we will just stick with the first one. I was done in nine from 301.
"I started exactly with two 140's and then hit the double directly so that was funny, that was cool."
Weghorst has struggled to find his best form since joining Erik ten Hag's side in January.

He has failed to score in 13 Premier League outings but has managed a goal in both the Europa League and Carabao Cup.
Last month SunSport exclusively revealed how Besiktas want to bring Weghorst back in the summer.
This is despite the 6ft 6in forward ditching them in the middle of the season in order to pursue a loan transfer to Man Utd.
In Van Gerwen's case, he has cast doubt over his Premier League darts future after revealing he was "fed up" of losing.
The 34-year-old lost the PDC World Championship final the Michael Smith in January before losing to Smith again in the semi-finals in Manchester.
