Andy Cole, the former Manchester United striker, believes the Red Devils could succeed under pressure.

These days calls for leadership at Old Trafford are growing dramatically and

Red Devils

are considered to be lacking in that department of late.

The former Manchester United striker Andy Cole, admits that the Manchester United squad are always ‘under pressure and scrutiny’ especially when things are not going well.

He believes that pressure to perform should be embraced.

Some like

Bruno Fernandes

have been doing their best to drag others along with the team but to hit the ultimate targets, collective effort is a must.

Cole knows what it feels to be under pressure and knows how one could deliver under the spotlights.

“The club is about being under pressure and scrutiny consistently,” Cole said.

“Success breeds contempt and, when things are not going well, people want to jump on the bandwagon and talk about your lack of success.

“You have got to use that and get that siege mentality. And when you walk out there, believe in each other and say to yourselves, ‘This is what we are going to do, it is about us and what we can achieve’.

“The players have to get their heads down and become a unit.”

Also, Cole commented on the accusations of Manchester United lacking leaders: "In my day we were all captains in our own right and you had to lead your own ship.

“When we crossed that white line and looked at each other we knew we all wanted to win. In fact, we had some teams beat when we were in the tunnel.”
