Tiger Fight, October 6th, Sky Sports commentator Merson said recently that the 1-6 defeat to Tottenham gave Manchester United a panic purchase. Merson also believes that the team's poor defense is entirely the responsibility of the guards, and defense is a matter for the team. Finally, when talking about Cavani’s transfer, Merson said that this is not a long-term solution.
Merson said: "The disastrous defeat to Tottenham will only make Manchester United executives more panic when they sign in. I think their final signings are a bit panic buying."
"In the game against Tottenham, we saw that Manchester United had no organizational discipline. In a football game, winning or losing is a normal thing. The problem lies in the way they lose."
"I feel sorry for their defenders. Everyone said,'Come on with the new signature players, we also need a central defender', but the defense of the football game is the responsibility of the whole team."
"Take Liverpool, which kicked off that night, for example.
"When the forward is willing to push the opponent's defender, I don't care who you are. When the opponent player puts pressure on your player and you let him easily appear between the two lines, you will definitely be punished."
"The reason why I feel sorry for the Manchester United defender is
Merson also talked about Cavani: "Cavani can definitely solve some problems immediately. He is 33 years old now. There is also Greenwood in Manchester United, a very good player.
"Cavani is a good player, top scorer. But he is 33 years old, how many 33-year-old players are there in the Premier League now?"
"When attacking, you have to have speed. Manchester United is working hard to create a fast-paced attacking method to seize the opportunity to counterattack.
"Suddenly, Cavani came, and he would hold the ball to delay the attack. For me, this is panic signing. He is a very good player. I hope my judgment is wrong. He After he comes, he can quickly integrate into the team and do what he should do. But even so, this is not a signing that takes the future into consideration, right?"
"Signing such a player will not give you the feeling that the team is constantly improving. It will not make you think that in three or four years, we will be able to catch up with Liverpool or Manchester City. Moreover, even if you sign him, It is still not up to the level of Manchester City and Liverpool."
