Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the last few days celebrating their Europa League success, although they’ve now tuned that down to discuss some criticisms from a former England boss.
Fabio Capello has told The Daily Star that Antoine Griezmann is not enough to solve Manchester United’s problems and believes they’re still some way short of competing for Premier League glory- criticising the performance from their Europa League win in the process.
United secured a 2-0 victory over Ajax thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan but Capello expected more from the Red Devils and believes Mourinho has a huge task ahead of him this summer.
“It was a poor game. There was not enough exciting football. United are strong and defend well, which is good. But they are not an exciting team.”
“Griezmann is a very good player. But what is his best position? He is not a striker. United need more than him. They have other areas in which to strengthen.”
“Chelsea are so strong and they need to catch them. It will be difficult.”
The Italian boss, who also confirmed his retirement, has been quite harsh with his assessments but our landlord knows where he is coming from and has made it clear Manchester United have a lot to prove in the year ahead.
How many signings do Manchester United need this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
