Man Utd flops defended as Ed Woodward and co blamed for making wrong signings

Former Chelsea keeper Rob Green has defended Manchester United flops and, instead, said Ed Woodward and other United executives are to blame.

Since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, United have spent a reported £1.06billion with no Premier League titles to show.

Over the summer, Ole Gunnar Solskajer secured the services of Jadon Sancho to the tune of £73million, and the winger has only managed one Premier League goal this season.

While Donny van de Beek and Alex Telles, both acquired in 2020, have failed to break into the first team.

And Green has aimed fire at the management of the club.

"If they aren't good enough to play for Man Utd, it's not the players' fault," Green said while appearing on BBC Radio 5 live.

"It’s the club's problem for employing them.

"Talking about standards, what are the standards? The statement is these players aren’t good enough.

Don’t vent it at the players, not their fault. If you are going to get ridiculed by your own fans, it isn’t helping."

Ed Woodward is set to step down as Manchester United's Director of Football following the fallout from the European Super League.

United are looking to take the club in a new direction, and that starts with current interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick is expected to join the United board in a consultancy role next summer.

In a similar role, Rangnick propelled the Red Bull brand to the top of European football with success in Austria and Germany.
