Manchester United players need to change their attitude in order for them to compete for titles says former star, Luis Nani.
The Red Devils finished the current campaign at a disappointing sixth spot, enduring their worst ever defensive campaign conceding 52 league goals.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to make a flurry of changes prompting a massive exodus in the ongoing summer transfer window.
However, his task has been made ever so difficult by United’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season as the top players prioritise featuring in the club football’s premier competition.
The current state of the club like most of United fans worries ex-Red Devils star, Nani who believes that Solskjaer needs to change his players’ attitude as well as bring reinforcements to bolster his squad.
“United need more world-class players. Change something, attitude on the pitch,” Nani told Omnisport via Fox Sports
“I remember from my time with [former manager] Alex Ferguson, a lot of games we weren’t playing our best, we weren’t playing beautiful football but in 15 minutes we played with our hearts and to score goals.
“We run, fight for each ball. That’s the way we get all the results. They must have more desire to win every battle on the pitch, every ball, every challenge because just like that they’re going to improve.
“It’s hard to do well when the past is still there. All the big names and important people who made the club achieve so many trophies, they left.
“Now, most of them are still around but not doing what they were doing in the past like coaching or playing.
“Now, they need to build a new strong team, a new strong mentality. This takes time. This has been the problem at Manchester United at the moment.”
Despite a torrid finish to the current campaign, Nani believes that Solskjaer is the right man for the job stating that the Norwegian has the experience to steer the club out of the clouds.
“He’s been there in the past.
“Obviously, he has a different role now but he knows the mentality and how the club achieved what they have.
“But he has some good stuff to show the players, to change the mentality, to take them on the right way to fight for all the competitions. And try to be as quick as possible, the old United.”
