Souness denounces “catastrophic” management of Manchester United “sinking” – .

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has suggested Manchester United’s management has been ‘catastrophic’ and that it is a ‘sinking’ club.

United have finished outside Champions League spots in four of the past eight seasons.

Male Utd won the double in the 2016/17 season under Jose Mourinho, but they haven’t won a trophy since.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left the club earlier this month after around three years at the helm. Ralf Rangnick has been confirmed as new acting boss.

Rangnick’s deal will see him serve as a consultant for two more years from the end of the season.

Souness a dit talkSPORT that there is “no one taking responsibility” at United:

“I watch Manchester United without having any details on how they work. I don’t see anyone raising their hand and saying “I signed it, it’s my player”.

“There is no one who takes responsibility.

“The thing you have to be successful in in a football club is recruiting and since Fergie left it’s been a masterclass in how to go wrong.

“This is how I see it. You look at the players they brought in, the players they sold.

“Jonny Evans has been cleared to leave. Jonny Evans is better than any center-back they have now. I just don’t understand.

“The players they buy and the players they sell, giving people like [Anthony] Martial, who was in the last-ditch saloon two or three years ago, has a new contract.

“Mata is a really nice human being, but what does he offer them on the pitch. I just don’t understand who makes the decisions about football and they seem to get it wrong all the time.

“Manchester United, this majestic football club, is sinking.

Souness added: “Man United are perhaps the biggest football club in the world when you factor in the success, the turnover, the supporters they have.

“Right now, they must be in pain. I know people think because of my relationship with Liverpool I’m going to enjoy it, but I go to Man United and I recognize how special a football club it is.

“I think they are poorly managed. I’m not just talking about Ole, Mourinho before that and Van Gaal, I’m not talking about those guys.

“Above them, the management has been catastrophic and that is why they find themselves in this situation. “
