EPL: Manchester United release statement after 2-0 defeat at West Ham
Manchester United has assured fans that the club is committed towards winning competitive trophies at the highest level.
United last won the English Premier League in 2013, which was their 20th.
However, recent form has seen fans displeased at the direction the club is headed.
The fans expressed their displeasure loudly following a 2-0 loss to West Ham which left them wondering why the club hasn’t been able to balance commerical success with field performance.
Reacting to the cry from the fans, Manchester United issued the below 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 or five years ago.”
