MANCHESTER UNITED : 3 REASONS TO BELIEVE THIS YEAR

Updated: Aug 1, 2023


Manchester United

Manchester United doesn't need any introduction when it comes to success, the club once at the very top of the footballing world has currently come down the pecking order, and the team was decorated with trophies, high-profile names, top managers etc. Recent Manchester United looked like nothing of its former glory.


Since Sir Alex Fugerson left the helm at Manchester United in 2013 the club has declined dramatically, The United hierarchy has done some significant changes in bringing in top managers since then. It seems like nothing has worked out yes, the arrival of Jose Mourinho has seen United win something in a marginally long time lifting the Europa League in the 2017-18 season and finishing second highest in the Premier League


After Mourinho, Solakjaer took the position of the manager which we can say didn’t quite work out, Although he was able to finish behind City in the Premier League and did take that United side to the final of the Europa League



The New Manager

This year the story is quite different though, In comes a new Manager in Erik Ten Hag A Dutch mastermind who orchestrated that historic 2019 Ajax side that went on to secure the semi-finals place in the Champions League in 2019.


Ten Hag is a manager who knows how to develop young talent, During his Ajax period, Ten Hag mostly relied on the club’s academy players for quality on the pitch.


He is not a guy who speeds around 200 to 500 million dollars on the market but knows the value of young talent coming in through the system, Ten Hag has developed a host of players who right now are doing wonderful at some big clubs names like Frankie De Jong, De Ligt is no foreign to the football world.


Ten Hag signing for United means a huge boost in the confidence and morals of young players in that United side, Efficiently United have a host of young players who need proper guidance, Ten Hag has the likes of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, Elanga, Van De Beek who have that potential of elite athletes.



The "go for all" mentality

Honestly, this Man United team have nothing to lose, they missed out on the champions league spot the previous season which somewhat took off the burden of performing at very high stages, yes this is a drawback for teams like United but on the bright side, it might just turn out be a blessing in disguise for United.


Remember how Barcelona's relegation to Europa League gave them somewhat extra performance enhances for them in the League fixtures


Yes, the media pressure on United for not securing a Champions League spot has been terrible, the team was lashed out by most of the pundits.


This United team just needs to soak up the pressure, because surely the quality available in this team is immense and only time is required to kick things onto their places.



Changes in management

In 2022 there has been some speculation that United are all ready to change their management which means re-electing the Board of Directors of the club, now this news comes in handy because there are various media outlets which have claimed that Manchester United are willing to only sell 50% of their stake.


While some media outlet reports that the whole of Manchester United is being sold in a lucrative deal. Whatever the outcome we can all agree that the Manchester United hierarchy is in serious doubt regarding their future with the club


There have been a lot of protests against Glazer’s family for resigning from the United Board of Directors, Management and recruitment of players also have been somewhat very disastrous.


Players like Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba, and Aaron Wan Bissaka had been paid exorbitantly high compared to the performances they put in.


If the new Board comes in, we might see that extra push or backing required for a club to come back to its glory someday, because those who are satisfied, happy and ready to work their back off for their clubs have significant chances of succeeding.
