Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea says the lack of quality talents among the Red Devils was a huge factor that had played against them since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
Contrary to what many United detractors accuse the team of, the Spanish coach maintains that it was never lack of trying, on an individual level that hampered the team.
United fell to low-lifers Astana FC of Kazakhstan on Thursday night and even though their qualification for the knockout round of the Europa League is still very much intact, it is their qualification for next season’s Champions League that is in utter jeopardy.
The game against Aston Villa will offer the Red Devils a chance to bounce back from the joke of a fixture they had against Sheffield United last time out. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer men fell to the Premier League newcomers by drawing 3-3 and the plethora of tactical mistakes made by the Norwegian is making people believe he will never be good enough for United.
