Premier League title challenge unlikely for Manchester United next season, claims Red Devils legend

first_img1 Manchester United salute fans after their final Old Trafford game of the season Manchester United should focus on securing a Champions League place next season as they are not good enough to challenge for the Premier League title, believes club hero Andy Cole.Although the Red Devils trail champions Chelsea by 15 points, manager Louis van Gaal claimed during his bizarre and entertaining speech at the club’s awards night this week that United were “very close” to Jose Mourinho’s men.But Cole disagrees.The former striker, who won the Premier League five times with United, believes the Red Devils have fallen behind their rivals after two trophyless years, and therefore believes the club needs to temper their expectations.Cole, who scored 93 Premier League goals for United, said: “The aim should be the same again, to finish in the Champions League.“To win the Premier League next year would be very, very tough.“Chelsea have been the best team. In the first half of the season they played very well and in the second half they ground results out. How many teams can do what Chelsea do? There are going to be the team to beat next season.“Arsenal will be there if they buy a couple of players. If you miss out for two years it gets harder and harder. It will be tough for Manchester United to win the Premier League next year.”last_img read more
