Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher wants to see more from Paul Pogba. He said that the French midfielder has the potential to be a world class player but unfortunately he is not showing any of it at Manchester United.
Darren Fletcher, the Stoke City midfielder was highly impressed with the performance displayed by John McGinn, the Aston Villa star against Belgium and Tottenham Hotspur. McGinn was featured in Scotland during the friendly international match played at Hampden Park against Belgium last Friday. The midfielder showed his best performance despite the fault at the opening goal for the Red Devils.
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has identified Darren Fletcher as one of his experienced targets this summer, as per reports. Since Stoke City have been relegated to the lower league, the player is looking to exit the club.
Fans of Manchester United were thrilled to see David Moyes being sacked after an awful season as the Scottish manger could never gain support for the fanatics of the Premier League. Louis van Gaal was the man selected to restore the pride and turn Manchester United into the club that they were some years ago but the Dutch coach has only been picking up disappointing results so far.
Losing against Swansea City and some week’s later drawing against Sunderland and Burnley is not the way that supporters of Manchester United wanted to see their club kick-start the season but the vice-captain of the club, Darren Fletcher remains calm about everything that is going around in Manchester United as he veteran midfielder told the media that players need time to get accustomed to the playing style of a new coach.
Darren Fletcher spoke and revealed some details concerning the condition of Manchester United as he told reporters: “The players are learning a new system and developing ideas. It is going to make us better players in the long term. These things take time and we just have to keep believing in the manager’s philosophy and ideas. There are other things that come into it, it’s not just the system, but I am confident we will put things right.”
Manchester United’s summer transfer window has seen the Premier League club spending over €120 million which is the estimated total of cash that was offloaded in order to sign: Radamel Falcao, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw.
All of these new additions to the squad are expected to kick-start the season for Manchester United and start picking up positive results. Darren Fletcher is confident that his club and teammates will indeed be able to accomplish that and flourish under the tutelage of Louis van Gaal but they only need time to get accustomed to all of these recent changes.
As each season passes along the future of Alvaro Morata keeps on remaining uncertain as the young product of the Spanish club has only been able on making 37 league appearances for Real Madrid since 2010 when he was promoted to the senior squad.
Arsenal is desperate to land Morata as they have been trying to sign him for the past couple of transfer windows but things can take a huge turn if the young attacker decides to leave the club and join a team where his chances of performing are higher.
With players such as C.Ronaldo, Karin Benzema and Gareth Bale all leading the attacking department of Real Madrid, it does not seem like Morata’s chances of playing a pivotal role in the Santiago Bernabeu will arrive anytime soon and making a switch to Arsenal could give a boost to his career.
Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck has emerged as a target of Carlo Ancelotti as the Italian manager of Real Madrid is believed to have been impressed by the versatility of Welbeck and could launch an offer for him just in case Alvaro Morata does make his way to Arsenal.
Ancelotti would not want to cut down his attacking options and with the possible departure of Morata from the club could see Danny Welbeck turn into a viable summer target for Real Madrid.
If Danny Welbeck does arrive to the Santiago Bernabeu he is being viewed as a quality back-up option whenever Carlo Ancelotti needs him in case of an injury of anything of that matter while Alvaro Morata will be given the chance to fulfill his potential in a club where he can get into the first team.
Throughout his entire playing career Darren Fletcher has never went through a season out of Old Trafford with Manchester United but even though the Scottish midfielder does not have experience being transferred from club to club on loan spells, Fletcher still acknowledges the importance of the loan system.
“You see some of the lads go out and come back while others go and thrive. It sets you up for playing against men. All due respect to the Under-21s but it’s just a step up from the youth team really. It’s not like back in the day when you played against men and older players. It’s about going out to compete against men in matches that means something, whether that’s staying in the league, chasing play-off places or even the other players have got contracts to fight for by staying in the league.”
“That side of things is important. They will see a lot of things in the dressing room, like arguments, which will make them into men. They need that so, when they come back, they walk differently, and are more comfortable around the first-team players. Hence, they’re more comfortable when they train with the first team.”
With all of the recent changes that Manchester United is going through Fletcher also voiced his opinion about Ryan Giggs making his way into the managerial staff of United and the Scottish backed him up.
After David Moyes was sacked from his position in the Premier League club, Giggs was appointed as the interim manager of United which he did reasonably well and even with the arrival of Louis van Gaal to Old Trafford, Giggs will still maintain an influential spot in the club as he is going to be the assistant manager of the club.
“Ryan has done a fantastic job. He is made for management; you’ve seen that in these last few weeks. He’s a winner, a leader and an inspiration. And tactically he’s very astute and he has everything’’. Fletcher said.
