Getting him would be easier said than done though. Maybe Simeone would work...
They really are in crisis.
The problem there is also the squad. The rags fans think they really have top players, but deconstructing one by one, they are mediocre at best. Rashford is the only one that I would take from there.
Funny when Martial came and they said it was the next big thing. Add to that they bought the last 2-3 players just to stop us, but without thinking ahead if those would fit their system.
Piss poor funny, but they deserve it.
In buying sanchez they have essentiallybought a rod for their own back.
Their dog in the manger attitude to signing a player just because it was someone we wanted is going to cost them hugely next year,
when all their out of contract players come to negotiate. This could affect them for years to come.
The most sensible attitudes I've read on the ragcafe(spit) is that coming from the fans that say, forget about winning for the next 3-5 years and go back to the drawing board. They need some proper planning, not just the next high profile manager. They need a proper direction and identity.
A lot realise that we didn't just end up with Pep, it was years in the planning.
Our whole club and academy was building for that and preparing for it for years.
