Former Manchester United player Gary Neville, after the 3-3 draw against Everton in the 23rd round of the EPL, has shared his views on the team’s chances of winning the English Premier League.
“It shows where United are at the moment. They are not in a position to think about the title and I never thought they were in it,” said Neville to Manchester Evening News.
“I never thought they were championship contenders because their performances weren’t good enough, they lacked something. At the beginning of the season, I didn’t expect them to win the championship. They are still lacking.”
“It’s frustrating, but not surprising. I think they are on the right track. I think that was clearly based on the results of the last few weeks. This kind of form doesn’t allow you to expect them to win the championship.”
“I don’t expect them to win the title this year. But what I do expect is for them to come close to Liverpool and Man City. I expect them to fight to win next season. I think the club is looking at it the same way.”
Manchester United are currently second in the English league table, five points behind leaders Manchester City, who have one match to spare.
