The dire state witnessed at Old Trafford in yesterday’s defeat to Arsenal has raised lots of questions as to what next in terms of stadium location and as Mike Keegan of Daily Mail reports, the club may have to relocate to London.

Cristiano Ronaldo came under fire for that bombing exclusive with Piers Morgan just before the 2022 World Cup, an interview that was the first domino leading to his eventual bitter departure.

Among the things he brought to light was the clubs horrendous infrastructure and facilities that he said haven’t evolved with world football, something that has evidently come to pass this past weekend at home to Arsenal.

Just as the match was nearing it’s finals stages, the heavens opened and Old Trafford’s frailties were put on display for all to see.

Water could be seen cascading down between the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand and East Stand creating a waterfall, a truly embarrassing phenomenon.

A stadium of such iconic and historic stature has no business having a leaking roof and it’s a clear depiction of how neglected the club’s facilities have been.

It was an absolute mess for all in attendance with water flowing virtually everywhere even on the steps of the iconic Sir Bobby Charlton stand and into the Old Trafford tunnel.

It is absolutely shameful and embarrassing how long time owners The Glazer family have neglected such an iconic home and it took a change in management in Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS to make plans for renovations.

The British billionaire formed a committee back in March spearheaded by logistics genius Lord Seb Coe to make plans for refurbishing or renovating the stadium and area surrounding the stadium.

The pictures depicting the famous old ground as leaky and porous as the club’s defense speak a thousand words although there finally is some hope in INEOS.
