The downfall of Manchester United and what changes need to be made?

The Post-Alex Ferguson era for Manchester United has been bleak.

The joint-most successful club in English football are struggling big-time in recent years and their lack of trophies and consistently poor league finishes prove that too.

For a club which last one the Premier League back in 2013, nine years without even getting close to challenging their rivals for the title is borderline embarrassing and highlights the dramatic fall for the Red Devils.

So what changes need to happen?

Jordan Simpson, from the Stretford Paddock – a fan page about Manchester United – admits things have been very poor but the club is beginning to slowly turn things around.

He said: “The club are beginning to make positive changes for the club in some aspects like bringing in a Champions League winning centre-back in Raphael Varane and signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, as well as obviously the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, certainly lifted the mood of the fans.

“The big change though needs to be the managerial role within the club.

“It never worked out with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unfortunately, you could see he was out of his depth and then with Ralf Rangnick I don’t think the fans wanted him and if it’s only until the end of the season, that will have to be fine.”

United, sixth in the Premier League, are four points away from the final Champions League spot, yet both Arsenal and Tottenham who are both above United, have games in hand.

And with defeat in the round of 16 of the Champions League to Spanish side Atletico Madrid, it is once again going to be another season at the club without any silverware, which, for a club with such high standards under former manager Ferguson, is unacceptable.

Things drastically need to change or, in the next few years, Manchester United fans may not be witnessing Champions League football very often.
