Manuel Akanji was an option for #mufc in the summer. However, it did not happen as he was mainly admired by Ralf Rangnick, who subsequently left his role at the club. [Fabrizio Romano]
Luke Shaw admits he accepts losing Man Utd place to Tyrell Malacia!
Shaw : “It’s what everyone wants. I think Erik ten Hag, the boss, he knows my qualities. He knows what I am capable of and we’ve had chats,” Shaw said.
“It’s understandable that, and I even agree, the start of the season wasn’t good enough and he had to make changes. And I fully accept that, I accepted it.
“The only thing I can do is train hard and wait for my opportunities, whether that’s in the cup games or the Premier League. Whatever I play in, I just have to be ready and play at the standard I should be at.”
Who should start at LB vs Man City ? Shaw = Malacia = (y)
Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has given an eye-opening interview to journalist Adam Crafton of The Athletic :
- “Manchester United has on social media hundreds of thousands of fans. If they create an application today saying that 50% of the club can be sold, then why should you have one person or two people who invest £500m?”
- “Instead, you can have hundreds of millions of people who spend €10, €20, €100, €1,000, and 50% of the club is owned by the real fans of Manchester United. With social media now, you would do that like this.”
- “Since Ferguson retired in 2013, the club doubled their revenue but didn’t win anything [the league or the champions league]. So imagine if you succeed in football and also have great people in marketing...”
- “Ed Woodward is great at marketing but not great at football. Manchester United should have a chairman and then they should have a president of marketing and then a president of football, who is in charge of all the decisions in football.”
