Manchester United are the most successful team in the English Premier League, but United have struggled to replicate such success since Sir Alex Ferguson departed his role as manager in 2013.

David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have all tried to lift the club up, but to all to no avail.

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Bosnich, has hailed the job done by current Blues boss Frank Lampard despite the lack of transfers, and believes that the current Chelsea team is performing better than United, since Sir Alex retired.

According to Bosnich, Chelsea won’t take too long to return to the top compared to Manchester United.

“I was very close to Frank before what happened to me happened,” he told Goal. “He had fantastic footballing knowledge; he was one of the greatest midfielders in the world at the time.

“He won everything there was and he had a real advantage of playing under so many different great managers which gives you many different perspectives to learn off. He had the transfer ban which was overturned but then they didn’t sign anyone in January.

“Using young players, he has done a fantastic job. Patience is like gold these days and I think Chelsea need some patience. Once he gets the chance to sign players he needs to add to his team and open up the cheque book, I believe he will be fine in terms of getting it right to challenge for titles. I don’t think it will take as long to challenge than it will Manchester United.

“I don’t think it will take as long for Chelsea because they didn’t drop as dramatically as United since the Sir Alex days.”
