Manchester United’s squad wouldn’t be “that bad” if they were fit, Bent claims

Darren Bent believes if everyone was fit in Manchester United’s squad then the starting XI wouldn’t be “that bad.”

Remember, this is the 20-time champions of England he’s talking about. The squad is not “that bad” simply isn’t acceptable for a club of United’s stature. It’s defeatist. It’s accepting mediocrity and allowing the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City stamp to all over their legacy.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face the league leaders this weekend without their only two world-class players Paul Pogba and David de Gea, who were both made unavailable yesterday.

Also, while we appreciate Bent’s sentiment suggesting that Solskjaer deserves to be given time – that’s the “United way,” after all – we’ve moved on from the days of Sir Alex Ferguson.

It’s highly unlikely that the former coach of Cardiff City and Molde will suddenly become the greatest manager of all time – no matter how much his fans are willing him on. Unless, of course, the club want him for their big rebuild, which has gone relatively well with the likes of Daniel James, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but could be happening in the Championship at this rate.

It’s worth noting that Ed Woodward is culpable in the club’s demise, thanks to consistently poor footballing decisions – the most painful of which not electing a sporting director.
