United have not won the Premier League since 2013. The departure of legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson marked the beginning of a depressing new era of mediocrity at Old Trafford.
United are “nowhere near” Man City and Liverpool
According to Craig Bellamy, Manchester United are still “nowhere near” Manchester City and Liverpool. Which believes it could be an extra “three of four years” until the side call to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the title. United have not won the Premier League since 2013. The departure of legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson marked the beginning of a depressing new era of mediocrity at Old Trafford. Solskjaer took over in December 2018 after the dismissal of Jose Mourinho and has since tried to restore the club’s core values on the field and beyond, with mixed results. Last season, the Red Devils finished sixth in the top-flight. And also extended their trophy mileage in all tournaments to two years.
The first half of the 2019-20 season was no less depressing. Still, performances have improved since the beginning of the year. While the January visits of Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo helped to cheer up the club. The 11-match unbeaten run until the outbreak of the coronavirus stopped in March eased pressure on Ole. So it has been suggested that Man United is now on the right track to reviving glory days. However, Bellamy says that there is still a “big gap” between United and the two main sides of the Premier League. Which are both considered lanes ahead when it comes to “intensity” levels on the field. “The coronavirus hit, and it seemed that Manchester United had a good enough time. Everyone is talking about Manchester United, but they are not anywhere near these two clubs,” the former forward of City and Liverpool told reporters.
Man City has missed Leroy Sane so much
“Nowhere near.” The balance of City and Liverpool is on the team, the way they play, the intensity they play. The pressure and understanding of what they are doing takes them far ahead. The two sides are a big gap ahead of anyone else”. Liverpool’s 30-year-old expectation of home glory seems destined to end when the season resumes. As they sit 25 points without reigning City champions, with only nine consoles left to play. Bellamy believes that the people of Pep Guardiola missed Leroy Sane. Who has been absent due to injury throughout the campaign. He added: “The only player I think Man City has missed so much is Leroy Sane. Just for the stability of the team, not only his pace, but his pressure doesn’t underestimate how good he is at that”. He was a big, big miss this season.”
