Jordan question why Anthony Martial has not left United



Simon Jordan has blasted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for making use of Anthony Martial and questions why he is still with the club.

This is as Martial did not give a satisfactory performance, while Solskjaer is being told that the club cannot achieve anything with him as the manager.

According to Jordan, though, none of the above indicates that brighter days are ahead for United.

He said: “Of course he’s [Solskjaer] got mental fortitude. Of course he’s got strength of character.

“That can’t supersede talent, they can run alongside it. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is probably the loveliest man on the planet, he’s probably got loads of backbone and he’s got loads of character.

“I put him up against Tuchel, I put him up against Klopp, I put him up against Guardiola and he’s a pale imitation.

“When it comes down to it, there is a way of communicating and there is a way of producing a side, there is a way of dealing with the media and there is a way of running a football club that illustrates a certain level of talent and I don’t think he has it.

“I do not believe, to bridge the gap with the guile, passion and leverage that Klopp brings in, with the finances that Chelsea and City bring in and the elite management structures they have, too, that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the man to bring Manchester United back to the top of the pyramid.

“There’s going to be a generation of Manchester United fans who don’t know what it’s like to win the Premier League, unless they change the direction of travel that they’re in – by getting in a manager capable of embracing the challenges that are in front of him.

“He was given the job on the back of a win at PSG and from there… it is utter BS.

“Are United about winning the Europa League? I thought they were about winning the Premier League and the Champions League. There is not a parallel universe, in my view, where this guy achieves that.”

Jordan added: “I’ve spoken repeatedly about Martial over the last two or three years in conjunction with Solskjaer and the team he wants to build and success he may or may not have, may not have being my primary observation on that.

“Players like Anthony Martial will embody any reason why he doesn’t have success.

“I think they have moved past players like him now. I think he’s lightweight and he does it when he feels like it. He embodies a period of Manchester United’s buying criteria that doesn’t reflect that well. He’s got bags of potential, but so does Memphis Depay. He had bags of potential, but they don’t deliver at clubs like Manchester United.

“The expectation, the demand and the stage they are playing on is far more monumental than anywhere else.

“For me, he is the embodiment of a footballer that has got an inordinate amount of talent, but simply doesn’t have the psychological application or the innate strength to be able to compete at that level.

“He will not be a key component in Manchester United’s team and you’ll have the disillusionment of not being that key component, because it’s moved on a little bit from there and he will, perhaps, become a disruptive influence.

“I’ve looked at him on numerous occasions, made the observation that he’s lightweight – and nothing has changed.”


Legend ignores Man Utd, names six teams that can win champions league



Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

His list include title holders Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. However, Manchester United was not mentioned.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
