Manchester United (Manchester United) has been embarrassing itself this season. The Red Devils suffered a 0-3 defeat to Newcastle in the round of 16 of the 2023-2024 Carabao Cup (League Cup) at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, on Sunday (Feb. 2). Miguel Almiron scored in the 28th minute, Lewis Hall in the 36th minute, and Joe Wallock in the 15th minute of the second half to put United away. The defending Carabao Cup champions were unable to capitalize on their recent struggles in the English Premier League (EPL) and UEFA Champions League (UCL) in this competition. United have lost five of their first 10 games of the season at home for the first time in 92 years, since 1930.
United is in eighth place in the EPL this season with five points. They were humbled 0-3 at local rivals Manchester City on March 30. In the UCL, the Red Devils are also 1-2-2 and sit in third place in Group A behind Bayern Munich (3 wins) and Galatasaray (1-1-1).
Man Utd fans are even more frustrated with their club’s pathetic operations. “Looking at each team’s transfer revenue and expenditure over the past decade, United had the largest deficit of any club in the world at £1.19 billion ($1.95 trillion),” the UK’s Daily Mail reported. The Red Devils have not won the EPL title in the 10 seasons since Alex Ferguson, 82, retired in 2012-2013 after guiding the club to its 20th EPL title, a period 카지노사이트 during which they have spent heavily on player acquisition and failed to deliver. Paul Pogba, 30, who arrived in 2015 for a transfer fee of €150 million, has failed to live up to expectations due to frequent injuries and up-and-down play.
This trend has continued since the arrival of coach Eric Tenhaar (53) in the summer of 2022. Since Tenakh took over in the summer of 2022, the club’s three big-money signings – Anthony ($135 million), Rasmus Hojelin ($120 million), and Mason Mount ($90 million) – have combined to fail to register a single attacking point in the EPL this season.
