Would Manchester United have a brighter future today if LVG had kept managing the club (and been allowed to spend the same amount as Mourinho)?
I think its pretty likely. LVG’s football was unwatchable at times but he created a very good platform for the development of Rashford, Martial, and Shaw and all three would almost certainly be better players right now if he had stayed in charge. United might not have won two trophies last year but I think they’d posses a stronger foundation of young players for the future. Mourinho has basically lit their future on fire with his alienation of Shaw and Pogba and the inconsistent playing time of Rashford and Martial, which has hampered their development.
