Three reasons why the extended football break could work wonders for Manchester United.
The season being stopped indefinitely due to the COVID-19 global pandemic has been tough to take for many football fans, but for some clubs it may prove a blessing in disguise.
In our opinion one of those clubs could be Manchester United, when the season was postponed the North West giants sat 5th in the Premier League (three points off 4th placed Chelsea), in a commanding position in the last 16 of the Europa League and in the last eight of the FA Cup.
With a strong chance of silverware, the club’s main focus will be to return to the Champions League, which might only have to be 5th place due to Manchester City’s current Champions League ban.
Here at Shoot we look at the four reasons this break could work out well for Man United…
Man United were looking at facing the daunting prospect of finishing the season with arguably their two most talented players. Pogba himself has missed the majority of the season with a persistent ankle injury which required surgery. Whereas Rashford was forced off the field in January due to a back problem. The return to football in the summer could see both players being able to play a major part in the run-in which simply wouldn’t have happened without the extended break.
