OPINION: Man U Is Not A Bad Team At The Moment, They Just Didn't Focus On The New Footballing Method


Manchester United is undergoing a difficult period at the moment, as is well known. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a club legend and former manager, was recently fired owing to a bad run of results.

Ralf Rangnick, a German manager, was recently announced as the club's interim manager, with the goal of stabilizing the team until the end of the season, when a permanent manager is more likely to be chosen. It's easy to label Manchester United as a terrible team right now based on their recent results and the sort of game they've been playing.

Manchester United, on the other hand, is not a horrible team at the moment; the issue is that they haven't focused on the new footballing style. If one examines the footballing philosophy of Europe's dominant teams, a pattern emerges.

Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, and other teams have developed a comparable pressing technique that has been fine-tuned to near perfection. This pressing strategy allows them to win the ball back seconds after losing it in attacking zones, allowing them to keep pressure on the opposition's backline for extended periods of time.

Unfortunately, Manchester United did not look to be focused on this new footballing style, instead appearing casual when attempting to reclaim the ball from the opposition. When Manchester United played Liverpool and Manchester City, the quality of the new footballing style was evident.

The red devils were unable to gain any kind of foothold in the game. Manchester United, with players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, and others, is clearly not a bad squad; they simply did not focus on the new footballing style.

No one knows if Ralf Rangnick was able to create a working pressing system during his time at Old Trafford.
