Man United would have won the league if they had completed this deal

John Giles has stated that Man United would have won the Premier League and other top titles if Marcelo Bielsa was their manager.

Since the retirement of Alex Ferguson as Man United, the Red Devils struggled to win before settling with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, yet they are yet but John Giles affirmed that “If he had Man United’s players he’s been sensational,”

“Even against Spurs, they were well beaten in the end, but they had some terrific moves and they don’t have the goal scorers that you need to finish off when you have a good move.”

John Giles believes added that what Leeds do on the pitch is far superior tactically to other Premier League teams because of their manager.

“You see the teams now playing out form the back and it goes across the pitch and back across the pitch, you don’t see that with Leeds. When they are on the ball, they come out from the back quickly. They have the defenders, who in other teams are scared to get into positions to receive the ball and go forward. He encourages them to go forward.

“They are always going to be a bit flaky with the players they have and his philosophy, but they will never be boring.”

Giles has seen and worked with many of the greatest managers at close quarters, there are many similarities in how they develop, something Giles does not see at Manchester United.

“What I find about all of the top managers, the more games they play the more they learn. Football is made up of a million little things[…]

“You try to get the million little things as right as you can, I don’t see that at Old Trafford. Solskjaer looks like he just tells them to go out and play.

“Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not good, but with the tops teams there is consistency. Whether that is Manchester United in the past, Liverpool now or City when they were at their best.

“Three years ago Leeds were going nowhere, with the players that he’s had, he’s gotten them to the Premier League and they look like they are going to stay there, doing what they do. That’s an amazing job.”

He added that “Say, he had Maguire and all of these great player what Manchester United have, they wouldn’t be losing the goals that they are losing. I think they would be fantastic,” the former Ireland boss asserted.

“Leeds with the players that they have and the money that they spent in relation to Liverpool or Manchester United or Manchester City shouldn’t be there at all. But they are there and they are capable of beating teams on their day.”

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.”

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.

Solskjaer

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.
