Murphy insists Phelan crucial to Solksjaer at United

first_imgFormer Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes Mike Phelan will be very crucial to Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, if the Norwegian is to achieve success at Manchester United.Phelan worked as an assistant manager to Sir Alex Ferguson at United but has been re-signed by the club following the temporary appointment of Solksjaer as manager of the Red Devils.“Solskjaer will benefit from having Mike Phelan back at the club to assist.” Murphy wrote in his Daily Mail Column.“He’s a likeable guy and a very good coach and you suspect Sir Alex Ferguson might have been asked for his advice. He didn’t want David Moyes to let Phelan go in the first place in 2013.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“I do expect a bounce from United over the next few weeks. The players will relish the prospect of playing in a more attractive way. Some of the big names like Paul Pogba will have a new spring in their step having been benched by Mourinho. It’s called freedom.”“While someone like Zinedine Zidane would gain automatic respect because of his status, Solskjaer can still earn it quickly by communicating well on the training pitch.”“United did not anticipate being in this position, hence the call to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for six months. It is a bit left-field but not crazy. He knows the club and understands its expectations.”last_img read more

De Bruyne Man City have been sussed out this season

first_imgBelgian star Kevin De Bruyne believes that Manchester City’s rivals have begun to understand their tactics better in what has notably been a more difficult season.Last season saw Pep Guardiola’s side only losing twice on route to a record-breaking campaign in the Premier League by finishing 19 points above runners-up Manchester United and becoming the first team to reach 100 points.But this term has seen City lose four times already and they are only ahead of Liverpool, who have a game in hand, by goal difference at the top of the standings.“In the league, we lost a few more games than we did last year but we are still fighting on all fronts,” said De Bruyne, according to Sky Sports.“I think other teams figure out what we do, maybe, a little bit better. They may also have better squads. We just added one player, the rest is the same team.“The way we play is always going to be the same with Pep, we’re not going to change. Everybody knows that.”The Citizens do, however, remain in a strong position for more silverware this season with a Carabao Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley coming up this Sunday.Meanwhile, City remain in the hunt for FA Cup and Champions League glory which has prompted talk of winning an unprecedented quadruple.“But in the end, I don’t think there is a lot of difference. We have a lot of points in the league and I think the standard we are setting is still very high,” De Bruyne continued.“Maybe it’s not the same as last year but maybe we’ll win more titles this year. The most important thing is the titles. If we win three titles we will have done better than last year.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I think the goal is not to win the four competitions. The goal is to win every game and then the further you progress.“We are happy with where we are but we want to progress in every round we play in. That’s now the Champions League.“We want to do well and go to the quarter-finals, so we are one step closer to winning it. To set standards to win all four – that’s nearly impossible.”City are in Germany right now for the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie against Schalke 04 with kick-off set for 9:00 PM (CET) tonight.⚽️ UCL MATCHDAY! ⚽️Schalke v CityUEFA Champions LeagueRound of 16 First LegVELTINS-Arena20:00 UK#s04vcity🔵 #mancity— Manchester City (@ManCity) February 20, 2019last_img read more
