They also failed to qualify for the Europa League, which means it was the first time Manchester United had not qualified for a European competition since 1990.
On 19 May 2014, it was confirmed that Louis van Gaal would replace Moyes as manager of Manchester United on a three-year deal, with Giggs as his assistant. Even with this coach the team reached only 5th place in the table and winning the FA Cup.

This beginning of the season did not start so well for coach Solskjaer, unlike the end of last season. After the first 9 games they are in 14th place in the standings, a terribly bad start for this club.
The lack of goals, the sale of two strikers Lukaku and Sanchez as well as the numerous injuries seem to be the main problems that have led the club to this situation.
