Gary Neville explains what Manchester United need to do to be successful again
The summer has seen Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bassika and Daniel James arrive at Old Trafford but Neville believes it’s going to take a lot more than a few signings to see United challenging at the top again.
He explained: “Manchester United have to start from one block at a time. I can’t think they are going to from where they have been in the last seven or eight years and then think they are going to win the title straight away.
“As a United fan, all I want them to do is to create a strategy and stick to it.
“They sacked David Moyes and Van Gaal came in. He spent a lot of money on very technical players, possession-based players to fit his system but they sacked him when they went part-way down the road with him.
“Jose then came in and signed a different style of player i.e Lindelof, Lukaku, Pogba. Very physical, suited to the Premier League with a lot more power. I said at the time that I thought it was a better style of player for the league. Gave him a new contract and then cut that path short as well.
“Ole comes in and they have a new strategy again with young emerging British players.
“So you’ve had four different strategies in the last eight years at the same club. Four different styles of coaches, four different styles of recruitment and four different styles of play.
“Create a plan, stick to it and if you hit obstacles along the way believe in it again. Don’t keep changing all the time. If they could finish fourth this season it would be a huge success and I don’t think that is a given.”
