Manchester United need new identity and fresh players, saysSchmeichel

November 15, 2020

 

Legendary Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel says that the Red Devils still need many new signings and a lot more time before they are able to make an impact in the Premier league. After a few months in the sunshine under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, things are looking down for the former champions who have been struggling big-time in the 2020-21 campaign. There is plenty of inconsistency in the United results while rumours off the pitch have also not helped.Schmeichel says that this team needs a lot of new faces who are able to bring in a new identity, while he also went on to criticise the lack of character in the dressing room.

United were able to breathe a sigh of relief and positivity the end of last season after qualifying for the Champions League. However, this positivity has been short lived even if the team has been able to reach the quarter-finals of the League Cup and produce some good performances in Europe.United are still searching for the first win at Old Trafford in the league this season and they have taken only two points from six home matches. This happens to be the worst start for the club since David Moyes’ reign back in 2013-14. United’s latest home match ended in a 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

October 25, 2020

 

Former Manchester United star Louis Saha believes the Red Devils have missed the trick by not signing Edinson Cavani on a free transfer. The Uruguay international parted ways with Paris Saint-Germain after his contract expired in June and he has since been available on a free transfer. Of late, it has been reported that he could join Benfica and Saha feels his former club should have jumped at the opportunity to landing the marksman.


He told Football Index Podcast: “I think Manchester United are missing a trick by not signing Edinson Cavani this summer. I’ve followed him for many years and I’m gutted there doesn’t seem to be an interest there. For me, Cavani would be the best fit this summer. Cavani has a great eye for goal and his leadership would be a great asset. He has qualities that are very difficult to find on the transfer market.”

May 12, 2020

Daniele De Rossi retired from his club career in early January of this year. Even though being one of the greatest admirers of Manchester United he has turned down their offer. The reason behind this denial is he felt United has strong midfield with Michael Keane and Paul Scholes where his presence is not needed. Meanwhile, in Boca juniors, his presence is needed and it was a better platform to play his game. He has played more matches for Roma during his career with 600 appearances he has become an important part of the club.

Rio Ferdinand suggests Premier League season should be voided

April 10, 2020

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand suggests that he would personally want the season to be voided such that Liverpool are denied their maiden Premier League title. The Merseyside outfit have stood out from the rest during the current campaign and they are presently a staggering 25 points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the standings.

The Reds require just six more points to win the Premier League crown for the first time in their history but Ferdinand would prefer the season to be voided with the health concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic, he told: “I just think the Premier League should be void. Void it. I know there’s going to be a lot of Liverpool fans going, ‘oh, Rio, it just because you used to play for Man United’. I just don’t see a way that can be done where health isn’t compromised. Simple as that. All this behind closed doors business – you’re still going to have players there, are the players not part of society? It won’t be fair, it’s not a level playing field. I just don’t feel it’s right.”
