Premier League

Opinion: 2 Things Man United need to do if they want to win any trophy this season

OPINION: my opinion

After a stormy beginning of the year, when many of the Manchester United fans praised Ole Gunner Solskjaer, it is true that after the midweek loss of the Uefa Champions League to the Young Boys Bern the aura and the optimism about the United Manchester have disappeared.

When the loss has taught everyone, things need to alter to win any silverware this season.

I'll offer my ideas on both aspects that I think need to alter if Manchester United is to win this season's prize.

1. Sign a defensive midfielder of the international standard as soon as possible.

Manchester United still needs a competent defensive midfield, despite the multitude of skills available to Ole Gunner Solskjaer. In the latter few years Scott Mc Tominnay was wounded, while Fred proved untrustworthy and erratic.

On the other side Nemanja Matic, with age and use and wear on Serbia, is no longer the player who he used to be.

The 20 times Premier League champion had a golden chance to buy a new midfielder defense last summer and it might be harmful to club chances of winning any silverware this season unless this has been done in the next January transition window.

2. Fire and replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by a tactically conscious manager.

If one thing has shown over and over since Ole Gunner Solskjaer took at Old Trafford, then he isn't tactically good enough.

The Norwegian is simply not able to read tactical us and games like Pep Guardian, Thomas Tuchel, Jurgen Klopp, world-class managers. The 47-year-old had to rely on his players' individual brilliance to occasionally win games.

Solskjaer has at his disposal a large number of world level players, but he simply cannot use them. If United is this season to win a trophy, it is first necessary for them to release their feelings and to release Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has done excellent work in keeping the ship in a club.

But the United States needs more than stability at the time; they need trophies, and I do not see that with the still responsible Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
