EPL: They’re so poor – Souness names two players that sum up Man United decline

Posted by on July 26, 2022 0

Former Newcastle United boss, Graeme Souness has said that Manchester United are so poor in many areas due to poor decision making by those in charge of the club.

United have watched several seasons pass by without a single trophy as they endure a miserable fall from grace.

The club have not been the same since former boss, Sir Alex Ferguson retired and left in 2012, only winning the Europa League and two FA Cups since then.

And the former Liverpool man summerised United’s struggles down to a ‘decade of poor decisions’ and says the Red Devils are a ‘country mile away’ from challenging for major titles.

The Liverpool legend has criticised United’s incoming and outgoing players and says deciding to keep English defender Jones and Spanish midfielder Mata at the club epitomises the club’s decline.

Manchester United handed Mata new contracts in 2019 and 2021 before releasing him at the end of last season, while Jones remains at Old Trafford having signed a contract extension until 2023.

“The problem they have is they’re so poor in so many areas. That’s a problem for those making the decisions at the football club,” Souness told Sky Bet.

“If you’re a big player, do you go to Manchester United? I mean, they’ve had a decade of just poor footballing decisions.

“It’s not just the players they’ve bought – which is the easy thing to focus on – but when you look at making decisions like giving Phil Jones a new contract, giving Juan Mata a new contract, and you think things might be different next year…

“And then you talk about the players they’ve signed over the last decade, tell me one who’s been a stand-out, one who makes you go wow. It’s ten years of mismanagement.

“For Manchester United, it’s not about the top four, it’s about challenging for the title. They’re a country mile away from that.”
