Man Utd News: Arsene Wenger talks on the Red Devils Premier League chances as the club embarks on another season attempting a rebuild.

Manchester United had a disappointing campaign last season where they slipped and crawled to the 6th position. An overhaul was promised and was somewhat achieved after the club let go of many players that no longer fit their ideology.

The current team is a far cry from the one that has been fielded for years since Ferguson’s departure in the sense that the side has been built around youngsters. David de Gea at 28 is in fact the oldest among the regular starters.

However, the approach has flattered to deceive a promising start to the season. Manchester United thrashed Chelsea 4-0 to make believers out of the naysayers and doubters.

The team though has failed to notch up another win since. Two draws and a loss since has since Manchester United pick up 5 points out of a possible 12.

Manchester United not ready

Arsene Wenger believes that the club has potential but insists that they are not ready for the top.

“When you see Man Utd, they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,’ he told beIN Sports. “But they have not found a collective way.

“Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man United, altogether. That is the question mark now.

“You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready. When you watch them play, they are not a candidate to fight for the championship.

‘Will they emulate what (Ryan) Giggs, (Paul) Scholes, (David) Beckham did over a number of years? Personally, I’m not convinced.”

Wenger managed Arsenal for 21 seasons. A managerial campaign that included an unbeaten season wherein the team came to be known as the ‘Invincibles!’ Having played alongside Alex Ferguson and the legendary United’s sides of the past, it is safe to say that Wenger knows what he’s talking about.
