This optimism is spoken by one of Manchester United’s great legends, Edwin Van Der Sar. The legend of the Dutch National Team looks so sure of the Red Devils under the direction of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The title drought experienced by the Premier league giant since Sir Alex Ferguson decided to retire in 2013 ago. Since then, no consistency has been seen in the Red Devils game, in fact they only won four titles in the last 7 years.
Of the four titles won, there is no single title that can be proud of in front of rival supporters. Let alone to win the European Champions League again, to get a ticket to the annual event is difficult not to play, let alone the Premier League champions.
But indeed, since January 2020 yesterday, began to look positive changes at Manchester United. They began to show signs of ‘improving’, with good statistics 11 games without defeat, 29 goals and conceding only 2 goals.
No wonder if these positive signs make Van Der Sar look optimistic about the performance of his former club in the upcoming 2020/21 campaign.
“I have positive feelings for them for next season,” van der Sar told CNN.
The former Juventus Goalkeeper believes that the senior players at Manchester United will bring a good experience, plus the presence of talented young players.
“I am confident in the presence of De Gea, Maguire, Fernandes, Rashford and Martial they have a good team especially in their midfield. Apart from that they also have a lot of players who are still developing at United.” He said.
In his view, Manchester United who are now only need consistency. But, there are some problems that must also be resolved, such as speculation about the future of Paul Pogba.
“They currently need consistency and also a champion mentality. Maybe they can solve some problems like the clarity of Paul’s status, will he survive?” he said.
As is known, Paul Pogba was later rumored to be moving in the transfer market next summer. In fact, he had hinted the move since last summer, but finally survived.
