Paul Mitchell explains what Manchester United need to succeed

AS Monaco sporting director Paul Mitchell believes Manchester United need consistency in their managerial role

AS Monaco sporting director Paul Mitchell believes Manchester United need to stay with their manager longer to have a chance of succeeding again.

The Red Devils have had uncertainty in the dugout over the years. There appears to have been no direction with the managers who were hired.

Mitchell, who was related with United over the years, believes the club must stick with one manager and one long-term project. By talking to sky sportsthe former Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton scout said:

“We are far from

The Sir Alex Ferguson era. Erik ten Hag is a top coach at Ajax, but they need a top plan not just for now but for the next five years, and are working towards that, and sometimes on this journey , there are tough times when you don’t get the right results, even if you’re doing the right things.

United have been easy to trigger over the years, sacking a manager midway through the season. It happened with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho.

David Moyes came to Manchester and was immediately under fire. He didn’t even last a full season. But now at West Ham, the 59-year-old has shown he is a good manager.

Louis van Gaal, under whom we looked like we were building something special, was sacked after two seasons. We did not allow managers to settle down and build their teams.

“You have to know that over this period, consistency in decision-making will yield a good end result. I think we’ve seen both Manchester City and Liverpool, that when you adopt this long-term strategy, you can achieve real consistency and lasting success.

Stability is essential in any institute, especially football. It took Sir Alex Ferguson four seasons at United to win his first trophy. Since his departure, we haven’t given the managers enough time to show their authority on the side.

Mitchell, who made a name for himself under Ralf Rangnick at RB Leipzig, understands how much uniformity matters at a club.

“I think that’s the most important thing for Manchester United; putting their identity on who they want to be today, but more importantly what they want to be in five years, and where they want to be, and where they want to be. what they want to look like; everything from young players to style of play to all the cultural peace at Manchester United.

City and Liverpool are one of the strongest teams in world football today. Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola didn’t have instant success. We gave them time to impose their system and bring in the personnel they wanted.

To be one of the best teams in the world again, we have to trust Ten Hag and give him the necessary time and players.
