Manchester United legend Roy Keane has revealed he is pessimistic about the club’s title chances next season citing out defensive issues as a real concern.
Speaking to Irish Independent, the Old Trafford hero said: “The league table doesn’t lie. Man United are a bit short at the back.
“It will be hard for Man Utd to get past Liverpool or Manchester City [in the Premier League] over the next 12 months.”
The club will be looking at a title challenge next season with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently admitting that the Red Devils can’t afford to wait 30 years to get their hands on the Premier League trophy.
The Norwegian believes that his Old Trafford squad needs about three good signings in order to compete with the very best teams in England.
