EPL: ‘We used to laugh at Arsenal’ – Andy Cole reflects on Man Utd’s decline

Former Manchester United striker, Andy Cole, has reminisced about a time when Arsenal’s fourth-place finishes were cause for celebration while United dominated the league.

As the two teams prepare to clash at Old Trafford on Sunday, Cole has highlighted the stark reversal of fortunes, with United’s recent struggles to match their historic success.

Reflecting on United’s ethos of winning and competing for major honors, Cole expressed concern over the prolonged period of decline and called for a candid assessment of the club’s current situation.

He said (as per the Mirror): “Arsenal used to finish fourth and celebrate like they’d won the league. We used to laugh at them, but that’s where we are. Of course, it is hard.

“It’s hard because I never saw United in this position, I have got to be brutally honest.

“Ultimately, the team that I was involved in, we left a legacy for players who want to come to the club, try to emulate us and do the same thing. Sometimes I look at the team now – and the teams previously – and you scratch your head, because you’ve got to understand what United is all about.

“It’s about winning, it’s about competing, it’s about being involved in, and pushing for, major honours, especially in the domestic game. But we are so far away.”
