Merson has challenged the players to make a difference despite mounting irritation with the club’s owners due to Man United’s poor results.
The Manchester United players have been challenged by Paul Merson to quit hiding behind criticism of the Glazers and “stand up, be counted.”
United is failed to get a point away from home after losing two of their first four Premier League games, including defeats to Tottenham and Arsenal. Such displays undoubtedly contribute to the mounting resentment at Old Trafford toward the Glazer family and their divisive 18-year ownership of the team. Although the American family stated in November that they would look for alternative investments, a takeover still doesn’t appear to be any closer than it did ten months ago.
The summer transfer window and the beginning of the new season were overshadowed by the owners’ alleged lack of communication and rumors that they might continue to hold influence at the team.
Merson, though, thinks that everyone at the club needs to stop hiding behind that scandal and start making efforts to lighten the atmosphere.
According to Merson, it appears that everyone is concealing themselves because of the Glazers’ predicament, according to Sky Sports. They appear to be targets for everything, but they don’t participate in the game.
“Of course, they could spend money on the stadium, but a brand-new, cutting-edge facility won’t improve the performance of the players. Burnley succeeds despite Turf Moor’s unattractiveness.
“We need to quit running from the Glazers after every loss. It’s time for the players to take the initiative, show up, and deliver.
