Coach Slams Man Utd’s Title Rivals

By on September 5, 2011

Manchester United first-team coach Rene Meulensteen has dismissed the title challenge of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Meulensteen feels Manchester City are their nearest challengers, and claims Arsenal have failed to strengthen sufficiently this summer and feels Liverpool are still rebuilding their squad following Kenny Dalglish arrival at the club. He told the Daily Star:

“City are still a big rival. But Arsenal have gone backwards, Liverpool are still in a stage of rebuilding and Chelsea have just made one major signing in Juan Mata.

“Besides, Chelsea’s squad is too old, and their tempo is not high enough to win the Premier League.”

    AS a LFC fan i’d have to probably agree with him. top 4 this year strengthen in the summer again with Champions league football to attract top class stars then plan our assault on the premier league. Will be supporting City all the way in the meantime!

    The Man.U coach must remember that its early days and Man.U might have the depth, they have won nothing yet. LFC, Man City is looking good and have depth. Write out Chelsea at his own peril. Arsenal is going to come good and will beat Man.U at home in the return leg. Cant wait to see big mouth Man.U falter…

    Simple mind game tactics , man you are lacking in experienced depth and this will start showing not to far into the season when the fitness issues start as all teams get them. So for him to write off the chances of a huge, young, talented and premiership proven players that have started with smooth silky quick passing football that Liverpool are showing is just fear talking. Man city also have an exciting looking team which are contenders the only difference there is with man city and Liverpool is that dalglish has total respect and control of his player and they all believe in him as do us the supporters , I just feel they are a little unstable at man city . Chelsea are older and will do well but I think they have lost there edge with age and may have trouble with these younger energetic teams. All I do know is that it is gonna be one he’ll of a good exciting contest for everyone

    Agree wuth Efdal, Man.U youngsters will show their inexperience towards the middle of the season, show a little humility & respect Coach. Soccer is a funny old game whenyou underestimate your opposition. It’s about time Fergie is going fail. Liverpool, Man City even Wolves are looking good. Chelsea might be older, but wiser and more experienced to handle the pressure than your Man Who young guns.
