Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea believes his team has been plagued by a “curse” that has prevented them from winning any trophy in recent years.

The Red Devils last won a trophy with former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in 2017.

They won the Europa League and the Carabao Cup that season, but have since struggled.

The signing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2018 did not assist the club back to greatness, and Ralf Rangnick appears unlikely to deliver any trophies in his brief but sweet stint in the Old Trafford dugout this season.

De Gea has stated that he is perplexed as to why United has failed to add to their trophy cabinet at Old Trafford in the last five years.

“I suppose someone has put a curse on us or something,” he told El Pais. The truth is that I have no idea what’s going on.

“People always ask me, and when we talk about it as a team, we just reply, ‘we don’t know what’s going on.'”

“We should have contended for more medals, greater titles, but I’m not sure why this team doesn’t work.”

United signed Raphael Varane, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Jadon Sancho ahead of the season, but the club is no closer to winning a trophy — in fact, it is less likely.

United finished second in the Premier League and runners-up in the Europa League last season.

The club’s best chance of winning a trophy this season is in the Champions League, and given that they are now sixth in the league, it is extremely unlikely.

United fans will be hopeful that the advent of a new face in the dugout on a long-term basis can bring the club back to its golden days.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been extensively connected with the midsummer job, as have Brendan Rodgers of Leicester City and Erik ten Hag of Ajax.

However, ending United’s trophy streak will require multiple new acquisitions as well as fresh methods.
