Harry Redknapp: Sir Alex Ferguson couldn’t turn this Man United side into champions
Harry Redknapp says Sir Alex Ferguson would struggle to turn current Man United side into title challengers
Harry Redknapp says Sir Alex Ferguson would struggle to transform the current Manchester United side into Premier League title winners.
The Red Devils extended their winless run to four games in all competitions on Saturday afternoon after a goalless draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
Louis van Gaal’s men are in fourth place and four points behind leaders Manchester City and Arsenal ahead of their home game against West Bromwich Albion next weekend.
And former Tottenham Hotspur manager Redknapp believes United manager Van Gaal is facing a tough situation at Old Trafford.
“United are under huge scrutiny after a third successive game without a goal and there is growing pressure on Van Gaal to do what would have been unthinkable a few years back and drop Wayne Rooney,” Redknapp wrote in his Telegraph column.
“But the simple truth is that Ferguson – one of the greatest managers – would not be walking away with the title with this squad.”
The 20-time English champions have collected 21 points after 11 games following their stalemate with Alan Pardew’s Eagles side.
The Red Devils host CSKA Moscow in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Tuesday night after a 1-1 draw in Russia last month.
United have won just one of their three European games in the group stage this term.
