Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be given at least two more transfer windows in order to transform the squad.
The Irishman said the Red Devils’ 1-1 draw against Arsenal last night lacked quality, and he thinks fans should be patient and allow the United boss time to turn things around and get a team together capable of competing:
“They have given him the job. Support him in a couple of transfer windows. Are there more tough days ahead? You bet your life, but you need to stick with it There was a lack of quality from both teams tonight. Their lack of goals, the lack of opportunities they’re creating.”
United’s nine points from their first seven games is their worst start league start for thirty years. They are already 12 points behind league leaders Liverpool and seven adrift of Manchester City in second.
Solskjaer’s side also face a battle to finish in the top four this campaign, with the likes of Leicester City and a resurgent Chelsea likely to be in the mix, along with Tottenham and Arsenal.
United have Newcastle away from home next up in the league. Steve Bruce’s team are coming off the back of a 5-0 defeat to Leicester and should be there for the taking.
