Man United sinks as rivals advance in the race for silverware

Man United drowns behind national rivals in trophy boat race

Manchester United lags behind their national rivals

The post-Sir Alex Ferguson era has not been, at least on paper, the utter disaster that it could have been. In the eight full seasons since the legendary Scotsman hung up his hair dryer at Old Trafford, Manchester United have finished in the top six seven times, competing in Europe for the same number of years, while winning the Europa League (2016- 17). as well as an FA Cup (2015-16) and a Carabao Cup (2016-17).

But while his status as a continuous participant in Europe has been maintained, his domestic seriousness has plummeted.

Manchester United have yet to take home a Premier League trophy since Ferguson left the Theater of Dreams, and have only been placed as ‘best of the rest’ on just two occasions in 2017-18, as well as in the last season.

Perhaps even more frustrating, not only did the Red Devils finish a minimum of 12 points drifting from first place when they managed to clinch second place, their current overall trophy drought is more than 4 years.

Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea have lagged far behind Man United when it comes to trophy success in nearly the last half decade, while even Leicester City and Arsenal have clinched an FA Cup there. period.

Bitter rivals Liverpool have also earned four great honors, and the reality that United are falling far behind the standards set by their period of dominance under Sir Alex is impossible to ignore.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær must deliver this season to end trophy drought

Moving up the table would normally be enough for the vast majority of coaches in the professional game, but the former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjær He has still fallen short of the mark in his third full season at the club after taking over from José Mourinho in December 2018.

A third-place finish in the 2019-20 season and runner-up last season is a sign of national progress, while reaching the Europa League final last season to bounce back from the Champions League group stage disaster showed determination. in a competition (EL) that the club reached. the semifinals of the previous season.

But with the amount of money United continues to spend in the transfer window and after a summer booster period that saw Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo arrive at Old Trafford, failure to win any trophy should be, and such. time will be, reason. for immediate dismissal.

Unlike their rivals, United have not turned their spending habits into trophy success. And with the rapid improvement Chelsea have seen since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, there are no excuses for the former Norwegian international.

With United at the top of the table and tied on points with Chelsea and Liverpool in what is shaping up to be another exciting affair at the top of the Premier League, it is time for United to surrender and re-establish their flag. credentials.
