Manchester United is going through a disappointing era as the Premier League club is located outside of the top 5 positions of the top tier English League and it has been going this way ever since Sir. Alex Ferguson decided to step down his managerial reign at Old Trafford.
David Moyes was brought in to replace Sir. Alex Ferguson but he was sacked in less than 1 year with the Scottish coach only being able to pick up loss after loss. It came as no surprise to anyone that he was sacked so early.
Louis van Gaal has now been selected as the new man to follow the legacy of Sir. Alex Ferguson and so far things have slowly been improving.
Fans and experts have taken their aim trying to exactly pin-point as to what has caused Manchester United to suffer so much recently. The departure of Sir. Alex Ferguson has not been easy but there also are a number of factors that are being taken into consideration such as, the departure of NemanjaVidic and Rio Ferdinand.
A few months ago, Wayne Rooney was appointed as the new captain of Manchester United as he was given the captaincy armband following the exit of NemanjaVidic and fans aren’t sure if selecting a temperamental player such as Rooney with the role of being the captain of Mancheste United was the correct decision as they are unsure if the English forward has the capabilities of leading a team but according to Roy Hodgson, Rooney surely does.
Roy Hodgson has been impressed by what Wayne Rooney has done since being appointed as the captain of Manchester United and Hodgson has even suggested that the player should start taking into consideration a managerial or coaching career after he decided to retire as a player.
“Wayne has a lot of playing time left so I can’t think he has given it much thought, but when you have had a career like he has had, or the likes of Gerrard, Lampard, Terry or Cole have had, and you are that good a professional, then I would love to see them all stay in the game in a coaching or management role because they have so much to offer,” Hodgson said.
