“Man Utd have lost confidence, competitiveness and spirit, there is no hope”…Arsenal legend criticizes, “I even feel sorry for them”
Manchester United, the reigning champions of the English Premier League (EPL), have been crushed in the ‘Manchester Derby’.
The Red Devils fell to a 0-3 defeat against Manchester City in the 10th round of the 2023-24 EPL on Oct. 30 at home at Old Trafford. Without scoring a single goal, they conceded two goals to Elling Holland and another to Phil Foden.
An Arsenal legend who watched the game criticized the Gunners. He was former manager Arsene Wenger, who has been called Arsenal’s greatest ever manager.
“There is no hope for United,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
“As the game went on, the gap between Man United and Man City got bigger and bigger. I even felt sorry for the hopeless Arsenal,” Wenger said.
“Fundamentally, I don’t know if Arsenal can improve. The team has lost confidence, competitiveness, and even spirit, which is not the great fighting spirit of United. The reason they are struggling so much is because of the competitiveness of their players.”토스카지노 도메인
“Against Man City, they started the game from the back. They gave the ball too much to the goalkeeper when they had chances to play forward. They wanted to start by giving the ball to the keeper. This is a sign of fear. They didn’t want the ball, and it made the whole team uncertain.”
Wenger didn’t stop criticizing his players.
“The biggest problem was that there was too much distance between the attackers and the defenders. The strikers were trying to close the door and press, and the defenders were 20 meters behind the halfway line. In this situation, you can’t win the ball back against a team like Man City.”
