Paul Scholes says change of manager is not the solution

Erik Ten Haag

Paul Scholes gave out his analysis of the Manchester United situation. He thinks changing the manager is not going to do any good.

Tragedy in Manchester

Compared to the losses that have come before it this season. Wednesday night’s Champions League loss to FC Copenhagen seemed quite different. United did had some success, but their trip to Europe is now very much in jeopardy due to their surrender just before the very end.

United was predicted to advance easily when the group stages were drawn. But to be honest, the entire process has been a nightmare. Many supporters were counting on the cup tournaments to bring them some relief given the current situation of the Premier League.

Rather, they have already lost the Carabao Cup and are almost certain to lose the Champions League as well. The management is not the solution; something has to change.

Paul Scholes Analysis

Paul Scholes provided an excellent explanation of the circumstances following Wednesday night’s loss. “I continue to believe that he is not under that much pressure. He told TNT Sports, “I think he has bought himself a little bit of time in that regard. He had a good year.”

“It’s not good enough that he’s lost nine games out of seventeen despite a few injuries. In that second or third year, all those managers were fired, but I don’t think we can afford to do it any longer.

“This guy has been fine up until now, so I think we have to let him continue with it. You have admit, he’s a touch off luck tonight.”
United has adopted the practise of arbitrarily replacing managers. David Moyes was fired, as were Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and others, when they failed. These managers all experienced the same end.

All it has done, though, is produce this hybrid of players from various periods that the present manager is forced to use in an attempt to shape the club’s ideology. It is ineffective.

Sooner or later there comes a time when the powers that be decide they have to stick with the manager and allow them to ride the storm. We have clearly passed the point of sackings and Ten Hag should be given the time to try and see his vision through.
