He has previously said, “I think we should discuss an issue I mentioned 15 years ago. Are the dimensions of the target still reasonable?

“When the goal was defined as 2.44 m high and 7.32 m wide, the average person – and that includes goalkeepers – was 10 cm shorter.”

“If you made the target a foot wider and 20 cm higher, you would definitely see a few more goals.”

The German also believes that the Covid-enforced rule to increase the number of substitutes you can use per match from three to five should stay here.

“It makes the game faster, reduces injuries and keeps the team in a better mood,” he added.

The United boss will rotate and make big changes for tonight’s Champions League death game against Young Boys at Old Trafford.

Dean Henderson and Donny van de Beek will be in the starting line-up, while Jesse Lingard and Anthony Elanga are also pushing for a starting spot.
