The former England striker made the claim pointing out the fact that the recruiting system under the American has been awful.

United are still in pursuit of Dortmund's Jandon Sancho and have only managed to bring in Donny Van de Beek from Ajax this summer.

He said on the Kelly and Wrighty show:

"For me, and it's blatantly obvious to me, you've got someone like Michael Emenalo who was at Chelsea.
"He won three Premier Leagues under three different managers, he's won the Champions League, he's helped oversee the loan system and the academy system at Chelsea.
"We're talking about a director of football who knows exactly what he's doing.
"We're talking about under [Roman] Abramovich with three different managers and he still managed, because he's a football man, to get the job done.
"What happened with Chelsea was that when we say 'another manager's come in', but they're still winning trophies.
"This is the thing because he's put a culture and [template] in where they can just put that player in, bring that manager in, and they can go forward and do it.
"That's what Man Utd need and that is what they haven't got and that is the elephant in the room."
