Football pundit and former Chelsea midfielder, Craig Burnley, has hinted that aside the improvements Manchester United needs in three positions, including the midfield, the club needs to sack its current manager, Ole Solskjaer.
Speaking after Manchester United’s humiliating lose to Watford last Sunday, he said “Man United lack flair with all their money, where’s it gone? “Against the City’s of this world and the Liverpools and Tottenhams and teams of that ilk they come out and press them and probably have a little bit more possession, then they can use their pace on the counter attack.
“But most of the teams in the Premier League are not like that, so most of the time United have more possession and are having to break teams down.
“It’s been a struggle and boy it’s been ugly and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get any better.
In the interview made to ESPN FC, the former Chelsea player added that “They need a central midfielder that can pull the strings, they need a No 10 that can open a door and they need a striker.
“That’s just three positions, you can go on and on and on. The problems run deep, the problems are not just with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the problems run deeper than that.
“But he is part of the problem, the players are part of the problem for Manchester United.
“It’s not going to get better anytime soon unless the restructuring of this football club changes and the manager changes.
With 25 points earned from 18 matches, Manchester United sits on the 8th position of the England Premier League Table.
