EPL: Berbatov sends strong message to Solskjaer over signing new defenders

By - - [ ]

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov has told the club’s caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he does not need to sign new defenders this January transfer window.

Berbatov stated this ahead of Manchester United FA Cup third round fixture with Reading on Saturday afternoon.

According to him, the recent performances of defenders, Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones have shown that the Red Devils do not need to sign new defenders this month.

Berbatov told Betfair: “I have said in this column before that United need a new ball-playing centre-back, but the likes of Lindelof and Jones are now showing that they are more than capable of bringing the ball out so they don’t need anyone else.

“Ole instead needs to focus on bringing the best out of the players already on the books and there have been some good signs there already, with Marcus Rashford looking very sharp and even Alexis Sanchez joining the party at Newcastle with an excellent assist.

“The FA Cup match against Reading will be a good chance for the likes of Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku to show the new manager that they deserve starting positions against Spurs.”

“You can see, all of a sudden, that Manchester United look like a completed different team – because every new manager comes with different ideas and his own philosophy about how the game should be played,” Berbatov added.

“The central defenders are now carrying the ball out, the full-backs are pushed up – Ashley Young was in the box a few times against Bournemouth – and, of course, Paul Pogba is playing with far more freedom and has been much more effective as a result.

“The forwards are now playing one-touch football, with imagination and creativity – it’s something I’d pay to watch, and that hasn’t always been the case this season.

“Of course, the fixtures have been kind so far – and Ole faces his first real test next weekend when United travel to Spurs – but the good thing is they have been winning with style.

“If United keep performing like this until the end of the season – and especially if they can make the top four – it would be unbelievable if Ole doesn’t get the job full-time.

“He’s young, with the right ideas and a good team around him including Mike Phelan and Michael Carrick, and it’s a chance he deserves.”
