Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have not yet accepted the much-maligned Glazer family’s buyout offer.
TV analyst Alan Shearer has fiercely defended Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag amid ongoing difficulties in the boardroom amid a prospective takeover at Old Trafford.
This season, United has only amassed six out of a possible 15 points on the field, with their 3-1 loss to Brighton on Saturday afternoon being the season’s high point. Behind the scenes, the infamous Glazer family hasn’t made up their minds about what to do with the club moving forward.
The proposals put forth by Sheikh Jassim of Qatar and British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe through his company INEOS are still being taken into consideration. Shearer, a former Premier League striker, believes that if the’shambles’ upstairs are allowed to continue, United supporters will continue to suffer since there is no clear solution in sight.
“I’m not saying it’s all their fault, because it shouldn’t affect what happens on the field, but at whatever level you’re at, what happens at the very top of an organization always drip-feeds itself down to the shop floor,” he said on the podcast The Rest Is Football. This is what is going on at Manchester United, and it will keep happening until the absolute top, the Glazer family, gets their act together.
“Whatever it is, whether that involves selling the club. Can I buy it? If not, why not? They will suffer and continue to suffer, in my opinion, until it is resolved.
You have two football clubs that are polar opposites, Shearer continued. You have a football team that is really well organized, run, and everything is in place at Brighton.
“It all comes out on the field, and at the top you have a football team that is a complete disgrace and that the supporters no longer support. They won’t be able to relax until they pass away.
The former Newcastle striker said, “How many times did they get praised last season? “, in reference to Ten Hag and his early-season struggles. They advanced to and won the Carabao Cup final, advanced to and finished in the top four of the FA Cup. the manner in which he handled the [Cristiano] Ronaldo problem there.All of those items included. After five games, it suddenly doesn’t imply that he’s a poor manager. Last season, he received a lot of appreciation for his actions and for theirattitude and all other factors.
