Manchester United boss David Moyes knows that if he is to have any chance of rekindling the glory that Sir Alex Ferguson left behind he needs a squad where all members perform to their maximum potential.
However, whether all members of the Red Devils’ squad are up to the challenge or not is questionable. Even during the latter years of the Ferguson era signs were there that the Scotsman felt the need to keep with the tried and trusted old guard rather than give some of his more recent signings bigger roles in the team. A classic example of this was Ferguson’s SOS call to Paul Scholes to come out of retirement. Scholes was no one where near the player he was once yet started his first match back.
In some ways this was covered by the media as a fairy tale for a Premier League legend, however upon further examination it exposed an acute lack of quality and faith in some of the signings Ferguson had made, among them the likes of Anderson and Ashley Young. These two players often divide opinion and it’s almost as if fans have an eternal wait for them to fulfil their potential. Or is it that they are simply not good enough? Here are five reasons why Young isn’t of the required quality for Manchester United.
