Manchester United have dropped to ninth place in the latest Uefa club coefficient rankings.
A big reason for their fall is because their 2017 Europa League victory no longer counts towards their coefficient total.
Uefa only takes into account points accumulated over the last five seasons, including the current campaign.
United have under performed in Europe in recent years despite making the Europa League final last term.
The furthest they have reached in the Champions League in that period is the quarter-finals, where they lost to Barcelona in 2019.
As a result, United have dropped from their previous position of seventh.
Rivals Liverpool have jumped above the Red Devils after winning the Champions League in 2019 and finishing as runners-up the year before that.
Last season’s finalists Manchester City and eventual winners Chelsea now rank higher than United as well.
