Liverpool legends debate Man United’s problems

The latest 5Times podcast sees host Jason McAteer joined by FA Cup winning captain Mark Wright and three times league title winner Jan Molby.


The trio of former players discuss the Reds’ current form, title hopes and look ahead to Saturday’s trip to Cardiff.

After the 3-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, the trio inevitably gave their thoughts on the situation at Old Trafford, with Wright questioning the champions seeming lack of belief.

“You’ve never seen a a Man United side so lacking of aggression and desire to play,” said Wright.

“There was no pace in their team,” added McAteer.

“They’ve got too many similar players, they’ve got five number 10s; Rooney, Mata, Welbeck, van Persie – is he an out and out striker? – and then you’ve got Kagawa,” said Wright. “They all want to play in that position.”

“His [Moyes’] Everton team was never built around a playmaker,” explained Molby.

As ever, it’s essential listening as three former players, who accumulated more than 1,000 professional games between them, candidly chew the fat over the latest events at Liverpool and in the Premier League.
