‘Manchester United should look at Manchester City with admiration’: former Red Devil explains how to tackle rivals – FourFourTwo

Manchester United may have won their first trophy in six years during the 2022-23 season, but when you see Manchester City match their treble-winning achievement, it certainly won’t have gone down well at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils even had a chance to stop City’s treble chances at Wembley in the FA Cup final, but a 2-1 defeat – courtesy of two goals from Ilkay Gundogan – meant their city rivals are a step closer to the coveted triple crown of trophies.

Gordon Strachan, who played for Manchester United between 1984 and 1989, believes his former club should try to learn from Manchester City, rather than turn a blind eye to their achievements.

“If I were a Manchester United player I wouldn’t look at them and think ‘I hate everything about them’, but I would look at them with admiration,” Strachan said. Genting casino.

“United need to look at City and find out what they do differently. Do they work harder than they do? Are they fitter? Watch them and analyze what you can do as an individual player to get closer to that level.”

However, Strachan does not think that Erik ten Hag should try to copy Pep Guardiola’s style of play at City. Instead, he suggests the Dutchman discover his own blueprint to succeed, hence Mason Mount’s signing.

“I don’t think United can play the same football as Manchester City. I don’t think they have the players to do that.

“Maybe that’s one of the reasons they signed Mason Mount. Maybe Erik ten Hag wants more mobility in his midfield and wants midfielders who can stand up and support the striker.”

“I think United need to start looking at how they can get more out of their midfield. They don’t get enough players in and around the pockets and run to the back. They need more creativity in the team.”
