Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp expects Manchester United to struggle for the next few seasons
Manchester United will be trouble for the next few seasons, according to Jamie Redknapp.
United appointed Ryan Giggs as interim manager for their remaining four Premier League games after sacking David Moyes on Tuesday morning.
Players want continuity and know where the club is going. I think Manchester United are in trouble now for few years
The Red Devils are 23 points behind leaders Liverpool and 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, with United set to be without Champions League football next term.
The defending champions are expected to spend heavily in the summer transfer window in a bid to improve their squad, with Louis van Gaal the front-runner to take the permanent job.
But Redkanpp reckons United could struggle for the foreseeable future.
“Can they spend it [£200m]? They can’t have too many seasons out of the Champions League,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
“All of a sudden things have started to change. Liverpool are becoming a force, you’ve got Chelsea and Manchester City.
“The problem is in the summer, if you get a phone call from City or United – two clubs who want to buy you – you’ll probably look to City at the moment.
“Players want continuity and know where the club is going. I think Manchester United are in trouble now for few years.”
