Manchester United 2018-19 Season Review
The 2018-19 season was one to forget about for Manchester United fans. The team's performance and form fluctuated so much that it kept the bookies and the fans on their toes throughout the whole season.
With the departure of Mourinho midseason, Manchester United thought that they had found their knight in shining armor in Ole Gunner Solskjær. Solskjær began his role as the interim manager with multiple back-to-back English Premier League wins. It was all rainbows, butterflies, and unicorns for a bit there; the club was playing in an attacking style, the players were in great form, Rashford was on fire, Pogba was controlling each game, Sir Alex Ferguson was back in the picture, the youth players were playing again, and the backroom staff was filled with United legends.
But it was too good to be true. After that famous night in Paris, Ole Gunner Solskjær was appointed as the United manager and all the same old problems resurfaced; the players seemed unmotivated, the team was playing on counter-attacks, and Pogba was depressing to watch.
It was clear that the problems at Manchester United were not only its players and manager, but they were structural. And they still are. The Red Devils not only missed out on advancing in the Champions League and FA Cup, but they also missed the chance to finish in the top four.
Ole Gunner Solskjær, Ed Woodward, and the Manchester United board have a lot of work to do in the coming summer to be able to compete with the rest of the top six teams.
What Manchester United Needs This Summer
The Manchester United squad lacks so much quality that it may take up to 4 or 5 seasons for the team to compete for the title. With that being said, it is clear that the club is in need of a technical director to lead the football decision in the club. However, it seems like Manchester United have resorted to a complex voting system for football decisions for now. It is expected that a technical director of some sort will be recruited during the incoming season.
