Jose Mourinho warned Man United are lacking options in key position
Craig Bellamy believes Manchester United need to sign a left-back to provide competition for Luke Shaw
Craig Bellamy has warned Jose Mourinho that Manchester United lack depth at left-back.
The Red Devils have made an impressive start to the Premier League season following three successive top-flight victories.
Manchester United were 4-0 winners against both West Ham United and Swansea City in their opening two Premier League fixtures of the 2017-18 campaign.
Mourinho’s side eased to a 2-0 victory over Leicester City in their last top-flight fixture at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.
The Red Devils have looked like a complete team in their opening three fixtures with their summer signings having a positive impact.
Romelu Lukaku has already scored three goals in three Premier League games since his £75m move to Manchester United from Everton.
Serbia international Nemanja Matic has also provided Manchester United with more balance in midfield since his £40m switch from Chelsea.
Former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Bellamy believes Mourinho’s side still looks short on options at left-back.
“I still think they need cover at left back, for Luke Shaw,” Bellamy told Sky Sports.
Manchester United have also signed Sweden defender Victor Lindelof in a £30.7m deal from Portuguese champions Benfica this summer.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term but won the EFL Cup and the Europa League.
