Manchester United has been on a downward spiral since Sir Alex Ferguson took over. Last season, they made some progress. They managed to rebuild somewhat by bringing in Van Gaal, who made a name for himself at Ajax. They finished third in the league, qualified for the UEFA Champions League (UCL), and lifted the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup), beating Newcastle United in the final.
This season, they wanted to go higher, so they made some solid additions in the summer transfer window. They didn’t bring in a lot of players, but they invested big money in each and every one of them. Rasmus Hojbjerg was a £100 million transfer, with Mason Mount and Andre Onana also costing close to £100 million. They also managed to bring in Sophien Amrabat, who impressed at the World Cup in Qatar, on a last-minute loan deal.레모나토토 주소
United started the season with high hopes. However, the results so far have been disappointing. With 5 wins and 5 losses in 10 league games (15 points), they are in 8th place, and the gap between them and Tottenham Hotspur is already 11 points. They were knocked out of the EFL Cup with a 0-3 loss to Newcastle, and with one win and two losses in the UCL group stage (3 points), they are far from guaranteed a spot in the round of 16.
As a result, the criticism of United has been growing. In the post-Manchester derby program, Gary Neville got a little “emotional” over Jamie Carragher’s comments, while Roy Keane focused on “captain” Bruno Fernandes.
The mood within the team is not good either. The Telegraph reports that “United players are questioning Van Gaal’s treatment of Jadon Sancho and Harry Maguire. A number of United players appear to disagree with Van Gaal’s hardline approach.”
Former Premier League (PL) player Gabriel Agbonlahor echoed similar sentiments. “Look at United now,” he told British outlet TalkSPORT, “they’re a different team. There are probably five or six players who would like to see Van Gaal go. They can get a better chance under a new manager. In my opinion, there is only one game left for Van Gaal. That could change with a new coach. Players who are not part of the current plan will be able to participate.”
