Manchester United would be title contenders under Mikel Arteta, Ian Wright has said.
Wright recently revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently underachieving at Old Trafford and something must be done fast to improve things at the club.
According to hiim, MUFC would be doing much better under Arteta who has been getting the best out of his Arsenal squad brimming with talented players.
He added that a coaching change has been obvious since Arteta was appointed, something that has not happened with Ole in charge at Mufc.
His words, “Can I just say something, I’m just going to blast it in: If Arteta is managing Man United they are challenging,”
“Because, for me now I’ve got to the point where, when you look at the inconsistency of Man United with the components they have, the team that they have, what they should be doing.
“We’re talking about [Paul] Pogba here, World Cup winner, you’ve got [Axel] Tuanzebe who can’t even get on the pitch after marking arguably two of the most exciting and brilliant players in the world.
“He’s using two holding midfielders when if he’s playing Tuanzebe he doesn’t need that! And you’ve got a manager who, for me, is playing off of vibes, he’s managing off of pure vibes.
“Look at what Arteta has done in his time at Arsenal. We’re seeing coaching change, we’re seeing coaching on the field, we’re seeing impact. Look at [Mohamed] Elneny, came out of the blue, found him and said, ‘He can do this for me, he can do that for me’. He’s making the parts work.
“And looking at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who’s got a Man United team with this [Alex] Telles – I think Telles looks like someone who could do something.
“Harry Maguire is starting to get back to what he can do, we know what Harry Maguire can do, with Tuanzebe next to him and [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka, and the goalkeeper is starting to find his form, they should be doing better than that.
“What they did against Arsenal the other day, for me, for Man United, coming off the back of the two results, was embarrassing. Roy Keane was saying the players will get him the sack. It’s not just the players.”
