MANCHESTER (Sporting Alert) — Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen, the current head coach at Fulham, says it didn’t take him too long to figure the tactics of David Moyes in the Premier League clash on Sunday.
Meulensteen returned to Old Trafford on Sunday and bossed his Fulham team to a massive point in the 2-2 draw against the struggling champions before claiming that it was easy to figure out Moyes’ game-plan.
Manchester United sent in a record 81 crosses into the Fulham box without any success, as the ones that weren’t wayward, were handled easily by the backline or the goalkeeper.
“When I saw United today I thought the game-plan was quite straightforward – get it wide, get it in,” Meulensteen said.
‘If you’re well-organised and the goalkeeper is in good positions to come and collect the ball, it can be easy [to defend against].
“You need a little bit of creativity and a bit of variety at times to open [teams] up.”
