Adidas CEO unhappy with Man Utd
The Chief Executive Group of the Adidas Group, Herbert Hainer, has expressed his displeasure at Manchester United’s recent performances.
Adidas had signed a record $750 million, 10-year contract with the Red Devils last summer, and while they are making financial success, Hainer wants to see the team play better.
“Business with Man United is going very well; we sell more shirts than expected. We are satisfied … even if the current playing style of Man United is not exactly what we want to see.” Hainer said to the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung.
The club have found it hard to attack under manager Louis Van Gaal this season, with just 12 goals scored at home all season long.
