More emphasis on the youth policy
United were known to bring out gems from their youth system, we aren’t saying that every season they had a Dele Alli or a David Beckham but they did bring in one or two players who did well for the club.
The revamping of the youth policy has started with Nicky Butt joining as the head of the academy and more emphasis needs to be paid for bringing in quality from the academy rather than always buying. They should give more chances to youngsters next season rather than buying players in their 30s.
Play the United way
Attack, attack, attack! That has been heard time and time again from the United faithful this season and for some reason the team just does not do that. Manchester United were known for their brand of attacking football and that has not worked all that well for them because they seem to have forgotten it.
Sacking Louis van Gaal isn’t the end of it; they need to play the way they used to play. Whether that is under a new manager or under an interim one till the end of the season, at least it would ensure that United have a go at teams rather than surrendering meekly.
Get a young manager in
Jose Mourinho might be in line for the job but United should actually look elsewhere for a manager who can give them the passion and commitment that the team has been lacking this season. Mauricio Pochettino might be a great example of someone United can bring in though the Argentine would probably not want to move away from London.
Diego Simeone is another manager who could be moving away from Spain but he doesn’t really bring exciting football to the club. United need to think a lot before they make this decision, maybe sacking David Moyes wasn’t the best thing the club had done.
Revamp the entire squad
While the importance of the youth setup is important, United have way too many mediocre players in their side at the moment. The team isn’t doing well and the need to invest in the squad and investing smartly is important.
Rather than spending ludicrous amounts on people such as Di Maria and wasting his talent, they need to be smart and use their vast scouting system to get the right players. There is a lot of work that needs to be done at Manchester United and none of that is going to be easy for them this season.
