Manchester United fans, after a long and depressing season, can feel excited about future following the sacking of David Moyes, who had spent 10 months in charge of the club.
The future looked relatively bleak with Moyes. No Champions League football, no title challenge, and possibly a club with its worse years looming ahead.
The summer transfer window, despite the promised £150 million to spend, seemed bleak. The attraction that Manchester United had once had as a larger than life club with an exceptional manager and European football, was gone. No player would want to come to a club rapidly falling downhill with an inexperienced manager lacking in trophies and authority over his players.
However, Moyes' departure leaves the club with reasons to hope.
Some very respected names in world football have been touted as the next manager of Manchester United. These names include Louis van Gaal, Laurent Blanc and Diego Simeone. The opportunity to manage Manchester United has clearly not lost any of its gloss.
These men, no matter who is appointed, will be respectable figures that summer transfer targets will undoubtedly want to play for. A season without Champions League football will not change that.
Additionally, with the winning experience that all of these people have they will be able to spend the money wisely and be able to rebuild the club from its current poor state.
All of these men instigated winning cultures at the club(s) that they are managing or have previously managed. All of them can come in and reproduce the winning identity that Sir Alex Ferguson had instilled at Old Trafford.
So whether we see van Gaal, Blanc, Simeone, or someone entirely else we should see a rebirth in Manchester United.
The board will not make the same mistake they experienced last time by hiring a manager lacking in winning trophies.
This time they will be sure to hire a proven winner.
And that makes the future seem bright for Manchester United supporters.
