Man Utd women’s head coach Marc Skinner revealed he would like the team to use an “adaptive, attacking and exciting” playing style. Skinner was named as Casey Stoney’s successor on a two-year contract before the 2021/22 season. He spent two years as the Orlando Pride coach and believes his experience in America can help United better their fourth-place finish.
“I think that this is just going to be a wonderful challenge for everyone. I want an adaptive team that doesn’t just have one way of playing.” Man Utd women’s head coach Marc Skinner said. “What I learned at Birmingham was that our teams were very ball possession-based. In America, I tried that in the first year and it didn’t work out, so I had to find out the best way of attacking the NWSL.”
”So I want us to be adaptive, but I want to play attacking football and exciting football, which is a brand of football that Manchester United fans expect,” he added. “So it will be a possession-based style but from my time in the NWSL, it will also be about exploiting lines and breaking lines and being aggressive between those lines.”
Skinner named the club’s ability for future planning as one of the reasons he joined the club. The club has had a major overhaul with a number of key players from last season leaving the club. They have also managed to secure the signings of a number of key players.
