The pundit thinks that the recent downturn in displays from the Red Devils are down to manager Louis van Gaal, and the Dutchman is lucky to still be hanging around. United most recently lost 2-1 to Swansea City, and even when they were picking up points fans were criticising the playing style.
The 57-year-old said, “I find Man Utd very pedestrian and that’s the first time in a long time you could say that about a Manchester United team. I think it’s the coach and the way that he wants to play. Di Maria came in, and the first few games you thought ‘wow, what a player.’ He keeps changing his position. Everybody keeps changing in this search for a particular way.”
He continued, “He’s brought one or two of the kids in, simply not good enough. I’m not saying they’re not good enough to be professional footballers or play in the Premier League but not good enough for what Manchester United need. It goes back to the manager and if that had been David Moyes he’d have gone weeks ago, nay months.”
With matches against the two struggling North East clubs Newcastle United and Sunderland coming up, the Old Trafford outfit may well have a chance to turn things around. However, they are still in danger of dropping out of the Premier League top four, with Southampton and Tottenham knocking on the door.
