It's not the first time we've heard "Manchester United aren't like they used to be under Sir Alex Ferguson" and the club's former winger Cristiano Ronaldo has said the same, as he believes there's a lot of work to be done by the Red Devils.
The Real Madrid star told BBC Sport: “Manchester is not the same as the Manchester of six years ago. This is a fact. It’s true. For me it’s hard to see that.
"Because it’s a club that I love and of course I want to see Manchester United at a level that it was in the past.”
He added: “Many great players have retired - for example Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Phil Neville.
“I moved to Real Madrid, Sir Alex Ferguson is gone and the structure has changed in my opinion.
“I like to see the clubs that I love at the top and I think Manchester this season is better but they still have work to do to be at a level of six, seven years ago.”
Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 United games and won three Premier League titles, two League Cups, the FA Cup, the Champions League and the Club World Cup during his six-year spell at Old Trafford.
