Manchester United Football Club are having a pretty good season, with Jose Mourinho already having delivered a trophy with the Red Devils. Our form in the league has been pretty consistent, and we’re obviously still fighting it out to win the Europa League trophy.
However, the playing squad still needs plenty of work if Manchester United are to become perennial title challengers once again. Jose Mourinho did indeed spend heavily in his first summer in charge, by bringing in the likes of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Now, former Red hero Gary Neville has had his say on the situation, and the pundit believes that Manchester United need to strengthen in quite a few areas – which you’d have to agree with.
“I think you could argue they need strengthening in defence, midfield and attack.” Neville told Omnisport, as per the Daily Star.
“Three or four players wouldn’t just be in one area, they would be spread among those.”
“They do need strengthening. It’s obvious. I don’t think United have sat there as the only team that needs strengthening.”
“If you think about English teams falling short in Europe, we need to strengthen all our top teams.”
Personally, If I had to single out one area, I’d definitely look at the defence. It feels as though Jose is yet to settle on a back four, although you’d imagine Antonio Valencia would be part of the side going forward.
Our midfield looks strong, but with Michael Carrick getting older and Bastian Schweinsteiger leaving the club, perhaps we could do with another top class player in that area.
The same can be said about the striker role. Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t getting any younger, and although we have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial waiting in the wings, we’d need an extra body.
