- Jamie Carragher landed at Manchester United, saying they are unfriendly
- Liverpool legend thinks they have ‘nothing about them’ this season
- He said they are recalling Roy Hodgson’s struggling Liverpool side in 10-11
Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United have “nothing about them” this season, admitting the “flat” squad reminds him of his struggling Liverpool side under Roy Hodgson in the 2010-11 campaign.
Manchester United face a huge battle just to finish in the top four this season after dismal results, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer losing his job and his successor Ralf Rangnick struggling to galvanize players ever since.
The Red Devils travel to Aston Villa this Saturday in a desperate search for a win after a dismal 1-0 home defeat to Wolves in their last Premier League game – their performance earning them harsh criticism from the fans. fans and experts.
Manchester United have ‘nothing about them’ and look ‘flat’, says Jamie Carragher
Liverpool legend thinks team lacks ‘energy and fluidity’ on the pitch
And Carragher feels they offer very little on the pitch, saying there’s ‘not much to like’ about the squad, which has ‘no passion or emotion’ – saying they remember of when Liverpool stuttered under Hodgson’s management.
This season has seen the Reds lose their way and fall out of the top four, with Hodgson being sacked in January.
‘[This] The United squad had promise, exciting young talent and enough goals in the team to keep hope alive that the flaws and inconsistencies could eventually be stamped out,’ he said in his Telegraph column. “At the end of the day, they didn’t have enough to fight for the Premier League title.
“What might worry United supporters now is that when they look at their team over the past few weeks, they remind me of Liverpool under Roy Hodgson.
Expert says team are calling back struggling Liverpool side under Roy Hodgson
Carragher reckons there’s ‘not much to love’ about United despite some big names
“There’s nothing about them; no passion, no emotion; every game looks flat; they lack energy and fluidity; the players are obviously not enjoying their football.
“There is a highly respected footballing personality in charge, but it took a few weeks for it to become clear that Ralf Rangnick is not the right fit for this team and will not be on the touchline at the start of next season.”
He added it was ‘dangerous’ to think the German manager could mirror the impact of Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, and said Rangnick still had the difficult task of holding back the attention from the locker room.
The Liverpool legend says the team lacks friendly traits and believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s top-flight return has caused problems rather than solving them.
He said it was “dangerous” to believe Ralf Rangnick could come in and replicate the work done by fellow Germans Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp.
“There’s not much to like about them at the moment and the Cristiano Ronaldo interview blew up divisions within the dressing room, highlighting the mentality issues.
“I said from the start that signing Ronaldo could expose more problems than it solves. This team lacks the unity and discipline required to challenge City, Liverpool and Chelsea.
United – who sit in seventh place, six points behind the top four – had an “appalling” performance, said Carragher. He believes the players have ‘switched off’, waiting for Rangnick’s full-time successor and slammed them for ‘apologies’ made on social media.
“Performances have been abysmal,” he added. “If United play as they have against the best teams in England and Europe, it will be a repeat of the games against Liverpool and City earlier this season when they were upgraded.” Many players seem to have died out completely, biding their time to see who the next manager will be.
Marcus Rashford should ‘leave it all on the pitch’ instead of making excuses on social media, he added
Those you would have imagined adopting a high-energy game – like Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood – aren’t doing enough. They are young lads who should leave everything on the pitch, vibrant with the ball and relentless in their escape.
“Instead, I am fed up with the apologies made on Rashford’s behalf by his PR team, in particular, by spinning a version of events to gain sympathy. What if you played better instead?
“This review is deserved because when you look at the talent available in the United squad, they should be playing more entertaining and energetic football.”
