‘Manchester United have no life or spirit’, says Ally McCoist, who insists it could take the Red Devils a ‘long time’ before they win the Premier League title again April 12, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Ally McCoist believes Manchester United have ‘no life or spirit’ and also says it could take them a ‘long, long time’ to win the Premier League title again.

Ralf Rangnick’s side were abject in a 1-0 defeat against relegation-threatened Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

United’s terrible season continued with a 1-0 defeat at Everton

They are currently seventh in the Premier League table and their chances of finishing in the top four are withering.

The Red Devils are set to appoint a new manager in the summer, with Ajax boss Erik ten Hag heavily linked with taking over at Old Trafford.

But despite an overhaul on the horizon, McCoist stressed there is a general malaise and a lack of spirit inside the squad and around the club.

He also claimed despite their star-studded side, Rangnick’s men are not functioning as a collective, and it could take years before United get their hands on the Premier League title again.

And the Scotsman believes the squad is going to need a total rebuild, with the new manager having to splash the cash.

“They are just not good enough, they are off it. Top four is miles away”, McCoist told talkSPORT Breakfast.

McCoist says it could be years before the Red Devils get back to their best

“You look at the games they have to play, Liverpool and Arsenal, [Crystal] Palace, Chelsea.

“There is just a malaise throughout the place.

“There is no spirit, no life about them. I watched the game at the weekend and it was baffling.

“You look at the players – Manchester United have got some fantastic players but they are not a good team.

McCoist also says an overhaul is needed this summer

“They haven’t got that blend in a team.

“Honestly, it could take a long time for Manchester United to get themselves back where they want to be because they are miles off from Liverpool and Manchester City.

“Obviously a new coach is going to come in and I just think it is going to take a complete clean sweep of the squad.

“This is going to need an overhaul.”
