Darren Fletcher insists Manchester United's flop squad doesn't need a clearout.
Fletcher points to Unitedās painful couple of years when they failed to win the title in 2005 and 2006 as evidence of what can be achieved if a squad sticks together.
He said: āIt can be a quick turnaround.
āBack then, the manager saw the potential that was there, believed it could happen and stuck with us.
āHe believed in us and the more games we got, the more experience we got.
āIt soon took us through to winning leagues and doing really well in the Champions League.
"We got to the semi-finals in 2007, then won it the following year and were in the final again in 2009 and 2011. That was after not making it out of the group stages one year. It just shows that people can write teams off too early.
āWeāve been in a position before where weāve not won the league and been written off.
āAs soon as it doesnāt happen for one or two seasons, words like ācrisisā and ādisasterā start being put around and people are saying that all the players need to go.
āBut that is just peopleās mentalities.ā
