Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm has dismissed suggestions that it will be a good time to take on Premier League champions Manchester United this weekend as the new Premier League season gets under way, reports the Daily Mail.
The Netherlands international was speaking ahead of the Swans’ opening fixture with the Red Devils at the Liberty stadium this Sunday in front of the live TV cameras, with the 29-year-old disagreeing that now is the perfect moment to be facing David Moyes’s side.
The Premier League giants have a new man at the helm in the form of Moyes, after the former Everton head coach took over from previous United boss Sir Alex Ferguson at the end of the previous season.
And with United also currently involved in a very public dispute with star striker Wayne Rooney, who has requested to quit Old Trafford this summer to join rivals Chelsea, as well as suffering from a loss of confidence after a string of uninspiring pre-season results, many expects are predicting a tough campaign ahead for Moyes and Co.
However, that is not how the Dutchman sees things, with Vorm predicting yet another hard test against the serial Premier League winners in South Wales this weekend.
“I don’t think they had their best preseason – that is fair to say,” said Vorm.
“Still it is Manchester United and they have so many quality players. They know how to win the league and they know how to deal with the pressure even when they are struggling a bit.
“Obviously for them, maybe it would have been better if they had started with a home game than away against Swansea. But still the Premier League is something special. Even if you had a good pre-season or a bad pre-season it doesn’t really matter.”
