Man Utd need new players, Mancini believes
Wednesday 22 January 2014
Former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has said that Manchester United must make changes if they are to continue to compete for the Premier League title, BBC Sport has reported.
Mancini, now manager of Turkish giants Galatasaray after three and-a-half years in charge at the Etihad Stadium, thinks that Man Utd need to make new signings and allow some of their more experienced names to leave. He said: "Chelsea changed and bought some new players, City bought four or five new players. After many years, it's the time [for United] to refresh the team."
Man Utd manager David Moyes has also received backing from the Italian, despite guiding them to seventh place in the Premier League, 14 points behind leaders Arsenal. Mancini added: "I think there is a good chance for him - he worked for 10 years at Everton and he did a really good job. He is a good manager and I don't think he needs my advice."
During his time at Man City, Mancini led them to their first league title in 44 years in 2012, as well as the FA Cup in 2011. His Galatasaray team take on Chelsea in the second round of the Champions League in February.
