Jamie Carragher is obviously not a man that could ever wish Manchester United well. However is his most recent Telegraph column it would difficult to perceive that.
Damning isn’t the half of it.
There is a footballing pyramid based on finance, history, status and global following. Manchester United will always be one of those at the top.
Do not make the mistake of being distracted by what has happened at Old Trafford in the last five years.
The United job will always be one of the world’s most attractive.Telegraph
Sadly for us, this is true.
Worse yet, it’s something Daniel Levy believes in his cock-eyed arrogance to be incorrect.
Manchester United don’t have a divine right to be at the top of the footballing hierarchy, however they can heavily influence the odds of them being at the top …by PAYING FOR QUALITY.
Questions like, ‘Why would Pochettino leave Tottenham now?’ amount to a loyalty plea. Pochettino owes Spurs nothing. He has done an unbelievable job with a fraction of United’s budget.Carragher
The issue here is that Levy has failed to exploit a massive asset on his books – which beggars belief!
Anyone in their right mind would have recognised Mauricio for the talent he is and ensured he had no alternative but to remain at Tottenham.
It is naïve to believe Pochettino will be content working at a club where qualifying rather than winning the Champions League is the measure of success.
He does not want the comfort of knowing he is safe from the sack if he finishes in the top four.
He wants to win the Premier League and Champions League.Carragher
You see, the Building Myth™ is nuts. Total fantasy. The invention of scared dummies.
Not a single SUCCESSFUL football team has ever pursued this path because it doesn’t make a solitary jot of sense.
Carragher isn’t individual that I particularly care for, but when it comes to cold, hard common sense, the messenger is never really the issue.
