Manchester United: Things Learnt from Coach Rene Meulensteen's Ranting

Manchester United's first team coach Rene Meulensteen's public rant about United's supremacy in the Premier League this season has been met with severe criticism.

Sir Alex's assistant told in an interview that he felt the Red Devils' had no reason to fear the top English clubs as they were far superior compared to their rivals. The 47-year-old Dutchman stated that big-spending Manchester City would be unable to compete against United's experience. He also expressed that Arsenal were a club on the fall and would not be fierce competitors for the Old Trafford team, while Liverpool were still rebuilding their squad.

Asked about United's most fierce rival Chelsea, the Dutch coach stated that Chelsea squad was too old to keep up their tempo all season through and thus he hoped United to have an easy run for the Premier League crown.

Apart from stirring up controversy which he must have learnt from his association with Sir Alex, the assistant coach also made a complete fool of himself by projecting United as the only top club in England.

In the next few slides we will look into what the Dutchman's ranting taught us all.
