Up until yesterday morning, it was unthinkable to discuss the future of Manchester United Football Club without mentioning Ryan Giggs. After a brief spell in the dugout during the final stages of the 2013/14 season, the Welshman was hired by current manager Louis van Gaal as Assistant Manager, a role many believe is much more akin to a managerial apprenticeship.
Manchester United Football Club saw one of their biggest legends turn his hand to management for the first time today, as Gary Neville was appointed the gaffer of Valencia CF. Shortly after the announcement, Sir Alex Ferguson shared his take on proceedings, and wished him all the best.
Manchester United Football Club are very hit and miss this term, but results, more often than not, have been positive. You still feel that a few more pieces are needed for a title challenge, and club legend Gary Neville has revealed who he’d like to see at the club.
Manchester United play host to PSV Eindhoven tomorrow, and ahead of the game Paul Scholes has made yet another bizarre comment. This time Bastian Schweinsteiger is in the firing line, with the ginger prince ‘expecting more’ from the World Cup winner.
“You expect more from Schweinsteiger, a player who’s won the World Cup and the Champions League.” Paul Scholes said.
It seems as though the Manchester United legend has turned his attentions off of the manager and now onto the players. I’m not quite sure what else he expects from Schweinsteiger, because the German has been different class since his arrival at Old Trafford.
He links the play up wonderfully, gets teammates involved regularly and always has that keen eye for a pass. Manchester United have lacked any real presence in the middle of the park over recent years, but the German maestro certainly brings some of that back.
Manchester United made a £12million move to bring the little-known Matteo Darmian to Manchester United over the summer, with plenty of fans criticising Louis van Gaal for doing so, when Nathaniel Clyne was available for the same price.
Manchester United’s Louis van Gaal seems to have been lock in a war of words with one of the biggest legends the club has ever seen in Paul Scholes. The former midfielder has labelled United’s style of play ‘boring’ and now he’s made another comment about his former side.
Manchester United played host to a charity match arranged by David Beckham this afternoon, with the proceeds going to UNICEF. Amongst the teams were legends of the game like Ronaldinho, Luis Figo, Clarence Seedorf, Robert Pires and many more, whilst plenty of United greats were also involved.
Manchester United are certainly a side that are in the middle of a massive overhaul, and Louis van Gaal is certainly doing a good job at this point in time. However they are far from the complete article, and Cristiano Ronaldo ‘expects’ Manchester United to be champions this year.
Manchester United sold Cristiano Ronaldo for a then world record fee of a huge £80million. The Portugal star has gone on to win all that there is to be won with Real Madrid, but its great to hear that the 31-year old hasn’t forgotten the past.
