According to Paul Merson, Manchester United needs a few more signings to make it the top four of the English Premier League. Merson feels United should be busy in the January transfer window to add more flair and versatility to their game.
Manchester United defenders Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling were accused publicly by their Portuguese boss for ruling themselves out of the recent game against Swansea City. This public accusation did not go down well with Merson and he has criticised the Red Devil’s boss for the same.
United have been struggling in the league for quite some time now. They are currently placed 6th in the English Premier League table with 18 points from 11 games. Merson also feels the same and has said that United currently are not looking like a top four side and they need to improve their game to make it to the top four this season.
Merson quoted “Jose Mourinho has got to buy some players in January or Manchester United will not finish in the top four”
“That team is not good enough and they seem to have a lot of problems. I understand what he’s saying about how players should play even if they’re not 100%.”
‘But there’s a way of doing it. If you do it in public you start losing players and that’s dangerous.’
Manchester United has some tough fixtures ahead and they need their star defenders to be fit for the games. United next face Arsenal in the English Premier league and then Feyenoord in the Europa league. Both the fixtures are tough and United boss Jose Mourinho would be desperate to secure maximum points out of the two games. These fixtures would be important for United to get the much-required momentum in the league. Mourinho would also be counting on the likes of Pogba and Ibrahimovic to step up and deliver when needed.
