Why it's time for Man Utd to forget the Class of '92

Manchester United must forget the Class of ‘92 as they aim to get themselves back to the top of the Premier League, according to Paul Parker.

The former Red Devils right-back was part of Sir Alex Ferguson's side that won the club's first league title in 26 years before he was eventually replaced by Gary Neville.

That crop of Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Neville and his younger brother Phil were regular Premier League winners, while they also secured Champions League glory in 1999.

And Giggs, Gary Neville and Scholes were still at the club for the 2008 win over Chelsea in Moscow but Parker thinks that United must now move on from trying to recreate that era.

Ahead of the Europa League game against Astana, Parker thinks the introduction to the first team could be far harder for this vintage of young players.

The likes of Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Nemanja Matic have been linked with moves away and could be frustrated by their lack of time on the pitch, with Parker concerned over a potential lack of leadership.
