Park Ji sung claims that inconsistency has been one of the main reasons for Manchester United not doing well in the 2015-16 campaign despite having spent vast sums of money in the summer.
United have not just spent in the last summer, but they have been trying to revamp their squad ever since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. The spending has gone up significantly in the last two summers. However, it has not yielded any growth for the club, as they continue to struggle for a top four finish. The form has showed a tendency to go up and down depending on the availability of players.
The South Korean midfielder says that the club needs to sort this out before thinking about the title. He has admitted that qualify for the Champions League remains a major priority for the club not just in terms of the prestige, but also when it comes to the revenues as well. United are in pole position to become the richest club in world football. They already have substantial revenues, which will now be boosted by the new television deal from the Premier League. At this point, they will want to remain in the Champions League in order to take advantage of this new contract.
“It’s not been a good season for United. Sometimes they’ve performed well, sometimes they’ve been off and that’s not good for the team overall. When we do well we need to keep up the momentum and continue to do well. Hopefully, we can see them perform better in the last few games. It’s not just one problem for any team when they play badly. It’s an overall factor. It includes the coaching staff, the manager and the players,” said the former midfielder, who is now the club’s ambassador for Asia.
