Opinion: The Story Of Manchester United’s Decline After Sir Alex

Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson

 Under Sir Alex Ferguson, United comfortably beat second-placed City by 12 points and 12 points last season. In the 2012/13 season, United won 26 goals in 35 games, along with Arsenal signing Robin van Persie. He won the Golden Boot in the English Premier League that season, surpassing Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Sergio Aguero, and was named Manchester United Player of the Year.

  United's game that season was based on midfielder Michael Carrick and goalkeeper Robin van Persie.

 On May 8, 2013, Sir Alex announced that he would retire at the end of the season, securing the 13th United Premier League title with Scottishman and a total of 20 wins. The next day, Manchester United announced that David Moyes had been replaced by Sir Alex Ferguson.

  Sir Alex brought in his backyard staff, including the club's chief executive, David Gill, who was instrumental in recruiting players. Ed Woodward, a former investment banker and loyal member of the United Glazer family, took over as Manchester United chief executive and took over the recruitment process. In the meantime, the club's trade and production prices have been steadily rising, but their performances on the pitch have been declining.

 The 2013-14 season kicked off in United's transfer window when the club met Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale during the winter and were unable to land both at Old Trafford. Finally, they started playing together at Real Madrid. Retirement midfielder Paul Scholes' retirement is said to have caused a lack of creativity in midfield. Coach David Moyes wanted to sign a creative midfielder. After Manchester United rejected three bids for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, Bayern Munich's Tony Cross, Athletic Bilbao's Andere Herrera and AS Roma's Daniel de Rossi failed to make a final attempt. United have signed Marwan Fellaini on the final day of the transfer window. Many fans and former players have asked why inexperienced Ed Woodward signatures have not been given to coach David Moyes.

 The Champions League transfer window has left Manchester United in a state of disarray, injury and aging. Unitassare, 32-year-old Michel Carrick (2013-14 due to injury), Thomas Cleverley, Anderson and Marwan Fellaini as midfielders, many believe he did not reach United level. Elderly Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vedic were unable to play at full strength, so they had some defensive problems. Other options, such as Johnny Evans, Phil Jones, and Chris Smalling, were not strong in the back. Manchester United's Robin van Persie has failed to reach the top of the table last season, which has dashed his hopes of retaining the title. As a result, United have been seventh in the league all season. This led to David Moyes being sacked by Ed Woodward after a poor run of form in the Premier League and his inability to qualify for Europe. David Moyes was like a goat in United's worst campaign of the 2013–14 season.

 The 2014-15 season has improved. Louis van Gaal, one of the most beautiful managers in world football, has brought in a successful season with the Netherlands. Van Hull made his debut in the United States at the World Championships. The departure of long-serving defenders such as center-back Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vedic and left-back Patris Evra has left a huge gap in defense.

 Instead of buying a center-back, Van Gaal bought three left-backs Luke Shaw, Dale Blind and Marcos Rojo for a total of £ 70m.

 The Dutchman sold midfielders Thomas Cleverley and Anderson. He has sold front line attackers Nani, Danny Welbeck and Shinji Kagawa. He then loaned Chicariton to Real Madrid.

 Van Gaal bought Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera. Angel de Marianne also signed Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco for a club record 9. 59.7m. Manchester United have been linked with a move for Tony Cros from Bayern Munich, Arturo Vidal from Juventus and William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon, but Louis van Gaal has ruled out a move.

 Manchester United have reportedly spent 150 150million over the winter, but many believed the team was not strong enough to compete with Chris Smalling, Paddy McNair, Tyler Blackckett, Phil Jones and the back. Johnny Evans. In midfield throughout the season, he was shortlisted by Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Marwan Fellaini, three well-known midfielders, and sometimes Wayne Rooney and Dale Blind filled the midfield. United could easily finish fourth in the standings, but for the first time since 1987-88 and 1988-89, they have not won a trophy for the second time in a row.

 The 2015-16 season began with the likes of Louis van Gaal to Fenerbahce, Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, Javier Hernandez to Bayer Leverkusen, Radamel Falcao to Chelsea and Johnny. Evans to West Bromwich Albion. Manchester United need a high-quality striker who can score 20+ goals per season, so they have to spend a lot of money to improve on a number of key areas and most importantly a good defender to develop a dripping defense.

 The Red Devils continued to bolster their midfield with the addition of Bastian Schwansteigger and Morgan Sheiderley. They also bought right-back Matthias Darmian, goalkeeper Sergio Romero and famous striker Memphis DePayne from PSV Eindhoven but United are still linked with a move for Sergio, but have escaped the transfer market by not signing world-class defender and striker. Ramos, Matt Hamles and strikers Thomas Mለርller, Harry Kane and Edison Cavani during the winter. The 20-time champions won a world-record bid for Gareth Bale and Neymar at the end of the season, but were rejected by each club. On the final day of the transfer window, United signed 19-year-old Anthony Marshall and made him the world's most expensive teenager.

 The Old Trafford club have been left without a striker this season.

  United fans called for Van Gaal to say goodbye in the middle of the season, with many fans battling it out. They were knocked out of the Champions League by Europa League runners-up PSV Eindhoven, VFL Wolfsburg and CSKA Moscow in third place. Finally, the FA Cup was the only consolation for Old Trafford, which dropped one place to 5th last year.

 United's only 49 goals in the Premier League have been impressive. Manchester United have announced the replacement of Louis van Gaal following the dismissal of Louis van Gaal following a series of errors in the transfer market and poor form on the pitch.

  The self-proclaimed United boss has repeatedly said that being United's coach is a dream come true and that he is ready to return to Old Trafford. Without wasting any time, charismatic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the talented midfielder, signed Paul Pogba for £ 90m, making him the highest paid player in the world. At this time. It looks like United have found their way to the top of the table with their influential coaches and top signings. For the first time since the 2012-13 season, Manchester United looked to be a balanced team with an attacker, a defender and, above all, Jose Mourinho's fast-moving fan at Old Trafford. Respect for Ed Woodward

  Jose Mourinho's United have won two trophies this season, the League Cup and the Europa League, with the latter advancing directly to the Champions League. Despite finishing in sixth place in the Europa League after suffering a hamstring injury and relegation, they were quickly relegated to the top two. The 2016-17 campaign was particularly tumultuous after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. At the end of the long season, key players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Michael Carrick, Eric Bailey, Marcos Rojo and Phil Lines were sidelined with injuries, but United managed to lift the Europa League trophy. And most of all thanks to Jose Mourinho. Ander Herrera has been an influential midfielder throughout the season. Ibrahimovic, Antonio Valencia, Marcus Rashford, Marwan Fellaini, David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Michael Carrick and Dale Blind all played key roles.

 The 2017-18 season kicks off with the great prospect of the 2017-18 season following the reign of Jose Mourinho. Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was due to miss the rest of the season due to injury and the club had to sign him. Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has been linked with a move to Manchester United. After Atletico learned he was banned from transfer and could not sign any replacements, he decided to stay. During the winter, United were keen to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, but the player's preferred destination was Manchester United, but the deal never materialized.

  Eyebrows raised as United signed Romelu Lukaku for ሚ 75m. Many former players, fans and researchers believe he is not a quality Manchester United player. Lukaku's best friend and United player Paul Pogba is said to have played a key role in persuading the club to sign him and sharing the same controversial agent Mino Raiola with him. Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindloff, meanwhile, have signed on to strengthen their midfield and defense respectively.

 Manchester United are second in the table with 19 points, 81 points behind arch-rivals Manchester United, following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. The 2017-18 season winner, Manchester City, spent a lot of time under Pep Guardiola, scoring a lot of goals, winning a lot of goals and scoring a lot of goals. In fact, United's second-place finish was not as bad as it used to be and the way the media attacked manager Jose Mourinho was not right. The big signings Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba have been disappointing throughout the season, and at the end of the season there was a lot of confusion about Mourinho's relationship with Pogba. The situation worsened after Sevilla lost both legs to Manchester United in the 16th round of the Champions League.

  The Red Devils ended the season with a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea.

 Jose Mourinho has not won anything in his second season in charge of the club for the first time in his career, having won the league with his former club FC Porto and Chelsea (twice in 2005-06 and 2014-15). , Inter Milan and Real Madrid. Jose Mourinho's third season at Old Trafford began with a lack of young, inexperienced and trembling defensive backs. Mourinho has been known to clash with players, especially in the third season. United have signed midfielder Fred and right-back Diogo Dalot, but Mourinho wants an experienced defender. The fact that Woodward did not buy a defender made Mourinho frustrated. Manchester United started the season with three defeats, but Mourinho's loyalists always stayed behind the manager and criticized Ed Woodward instead.

 Finally, Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United in December. The focus of the 2018-19 season will be on the power struggle between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho.

 The atmosphere was unstable and reflected on the pitch. United have won 7 of 17 matches. In June 2016, when he was appointed, many believed that Manchester United and Jose Mourinho were "a match in paradise", but sadly it did not. Lack of football knowledge at the club, signing the wrong players and outdated tactics cost him his life. Compared to the previous two managers, Jose Mourinho was the most successful of the three. He won many trophies and bought some important players.

 Manchester United turned to Ole Gunnar Salshayer to pick up the mud. United legend has done a remarkable job of restoring the spirit of the club.

 Unfortunately, he did not win the trophies, and even when the teams were added by Cristiano Ronaldo, he could not continue, and he was sacked.

 Manchester United have now turned their attention to German coach Ralph Rannik. It remains to be seen whether this will lead them to a better future.
