‘Manchester United have no life or spirit,’ says Ally McCoist, who insists it could take the Red Devils ‘a long time’ before they win the Premier League title again


Ally McCoist thinks Manchester United have ‘no life or spirit’ and also says it could take them ‘a long time’ to win the Premier League title again.

Ralf Rangnick’s side were abject in a 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

They are currently seventh in the Premier League table and their chances of finishing in the top four are dwindling.

The Red Devils are set to appoint a new manager this summer, with Ajax boss Erik ten Hag heavily linked with taking over at Old Trafford.

But despite an overhaul on the horizon, McCoist stressed there was a general unease and lack of spirit within the squad and around the club.

He also claimed that despite their star-studded squad, Rangnick’s men do not function as a collective, and it could be years before United get their hands on the Premier League title again.

And the Scot believes the team are going to need a total rebuild, with the new manager having to splash some cash.

“They just aren’t good enough, they don’t care. The top four is miles away,” McCoist told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“You look at the games they have to play, Liverpool and Arsenal, [Crystal] Palace, Chelsea.

“There’s just an unease in the whole place.

“There is no spirit, no life around them. I watched the game over the weekend and it was disconcerting.

“You look at the players – Manchester United have fantastic players but they are not a good team.

“They don’t have that mix in a team.

“Honestly, it could take a long time for Manchester United to get back to where they want to be because they are miles away from Liverpool and Manchester City.

“Obviously a new manager is going to come and I just think that’s going to wipe the slate clean of the team.

“It’s going to need an overhaul.”
