Former Super Eagles player and coach, Sunday Oliseh, has revealed the player he believes Manchester United must sign if they want to win the Premier League.
Oliseh, who is fondly called the African Guardiola, praised Manchester United for their emphatic win over Leeds United on matchday one, and said they will be, but believes there is still a missing piece.
The former Ajax, Juventus, and Borussia Dortmund midfielder advised Red Devils boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bolster his forward line with one of the hottest strikers in Europe at the moment, Erling Braut Haaland, who has kicked of the Bundesliga season in fine form.
The 46-year-old wrote in his column and said: “In an emphatic manner, Manchester United blew away Leeds United by 5 goals to one, with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes stealing the headlines.”
He added: “As impressive as they were, I still feel something huge is still lacking at Manchester United. Though I feel, they should be highly competitive for the title this season, I wouldn’t put my money on them being champions without Erling Haaland’s acquisition from BVB Dortmund.”
Oliseh then went on to reveal that Chelsea will dethrone Manchester City and win the Premier League this season because of the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.
He said: “Chelsea are definitely, in my opinion, clear favourites to dominate this season. Manager Thomas Tuchel has definitely won over most skeptics with the conquest of the Champions League last season, coupled with an authoritative finish to the league season last year, beating defending champions, Pep Guardiola’s Man City, three times along the way, without a dominant fixed point striker.”
He then added that: “With the acquisition of Romelu Lukaku, fresh off a personal best season with Inter Milan, winning the Italian league as the league’s top striker, Chelsea can now further play with more variety that will definitely make them extremely competitive on all fronts. Don’t bet against Chelsea is my advice.”
