There seems to be no hope for Manchester United.”
Former manager Arsene Wenger could not hide his sadness while watching Manchester United.
Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 31st of last month (hereinafter Korean time), “Wenger emphasized two things after Manchester United lost 0-3 to Manchester City.
He believes that Manchester United have lost hope and fighting spirit.”
Manchester United bowed 0-3 to Manchester City in the 10th round home game of the 2023-2024 Premier League season held at Old Trafford on October 30. 먹튀검증사이트
The game attracted attention as the first Manchester derby of the season, but it ended after Manchester City dominated for the entire 90 minutes.
It was a one-sided match. Erling Holland scored multiple goals with a penalty kick in the 24th minute of the first half and a header in the 4th minute of the second half, and Phil Foden scored a key goal in the 35th minute of the second half.
Manchester United collapsed at home, allowing as many as 21 missed shots (10 effective shots).
Former manager Wenger, who led Arsenal in the past, was saddened to see the fall of rival Manchester United.
He said through ‘Bein Sports’, “As the game progressed, the gap between the two teams grew bigger and bigger.
In the end, I felt sorry for a big club like Manchester United, because there was no hope for them.”
Wenger added, “Basically, I don’t know where we can improve.
This team has lost confidence, ability, and even mental strength.
Today’s performance was not Manchester United’s great fighting spirit.”
We did not forget to point out tactics. Wenger said: “The biggest difficulty for Manchester United is, above all, the individual abilities of the players.
And today I felt that Manchester United were very poor at building up from the back. They passed too many backpasses to the goalkeeper when they could have gone forward.
Then the team “The whole thing becomes uncertain and you lack confidence because you feel there is fear behind you and you don’t want the ball,” he criticized.
He added: “The second problem was that there was a lot of spacing in attack and defense. The attackers were trying to press and the defenders were 20 meters behind the halfway line.
That way you can’t win the ball away against a team like Manchester City.
Manchester United weren’t compact enough, “There were also differences in individual abilities,” he emphasized.
Finally, Wenger delivered an undeniable blow. He said: “How many United players do you think will be in the Manchester City best XI tonight? That’s the point.
Normally, I would say they would take three or four players for a big game or a derby.
That basically shows the problem at Manchester United.
This is a shameful assessment considering the amount of money Manchester United has spent since manager Eric ten Haag took office.
Manchester United did not spare support after appointing coach Ten Haag last summer.
The money spent in the transfer market so far is well over 400 million pounds (about 660 billion won).
Manchester United suited coach Ten Haag’s tastes last season by signing Anthony, Tyrel Malacia, Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez.
Even ahead of the start of this season, they invested a lot of money in bringing in Mason Mount, Rasmus Høirun, and Andre Onana.
However, this season’s performance is only 8th in the league with 5 wins and 5 losses (15 points).
