Man United statement after West Ham
The day after Man United lost 2-0 at West Ham, the Red Devils have published the following statement:
Everyone at the club, from the owners down, is focused on competing for and winning trophies at the highest level.
To do that, we have invested heavily in the playing squad and will continue to do so.
At the same time, the exciting pool of talent coming through from our youth and academy sections is a result of increased investment in this area over the last five years.
It’s important to note that while our successful commercial operation helps drive that investment, the priority is the focus on achieving success on the pitch. Similarly, it is worth noting that we are not looking at or buying players based on their commercial appeal.
We agree that recruitment is critical. We are committed to getting this right and there has been huge investment in this area to put our recruitment department into a position to be able to deliver the manager the players he wants.
This process is significantly more effective than four to five years ago.
Should Man United really have released this statement today?
Many will find the timing of this statement’s release to be curious.
That’s because Man United looked terrible on Sunday in their defeat to West Ham.
However, it’s worth noting when the aforementioned statement was actually made.
As confirmed in the Independent, Man United actually formulated this statement back on September 13.
However, the statement has only been released today.
West Ham 2 – Man United 0
The Hammers broke the deadlock just before the halftime break through Ukrainian Andriy Yarmolenko.
A free-kick from Aaron Cresswell sealed West Ham’s win six minutes from time.
