Wenger predicts the fate of Man Utd's youngsters

Arsene Wenger predicts the fate of Man United's young squad in comparison with Class of 92

September 11, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The French manager has given his verdict on what can or cannot become of the Red Devils' current setup in the coming seasons.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists that Manchester United's current young squad are incapable of replicating the success of the club's infamous Class of 1992. The ex-Gunners head coach claims that he is not 'convinced' about the project led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford this season.

This summer, the Norwegian manager gave his consent for a host of fringe players to be shown the exit door at Old Trafford as part of plans to restructure the club. The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Matteo Darmian, Antoine Valencia and Ander Herrera all secured permanent transfers away while Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling completed loan moves respectively.

In turn, Manchester United did very little business to fill the boots of the departed players by welcoming Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire to the fold. Having added up to a relatively young squad, the Red Devils now has a staring lineup with the average age of 24 years and 312 days - the lowest-ever recorded by the club since 2017.

Nevertheless, the injection of fresh enthusiasm and youthfulness is yet to yield the desired outcome for Ole's men who have managed just a win, two draws and a defeat in the Premier League this season. On the back of this, ex-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not fancy the 2013 Premier League champions to come good any time soon.

"Look when you see Man Utd it's one of the examples we spoke about, at the moment there is a potential there but they haven't found a collective way," he told beIN Sports.

"Maybe because all of these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man Utd all together, that's a question mark now.

"You feel there's something coming out but it's not ready, that's why when you watch them play they're not candidates to fight for the championship.

"Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes, Beckham did over the years? Personally, I'm not convinced."
