Manchester United legend Andy Cole has claimed the club need two years and multiple signings to be in the position to start challenging for league titles.
The club have failed to win the league titlee since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge in 2013. .
So far under Solskjaer’s guidance, we have failed to mount a serious title challenge and currently occupy 14th place in the Premier League table after picking up just 10 points from our opening seven games.
Former United striker Cole believes we are still quite some way off challenging for the title again.
When asked how long it would take his former side to get back to the top, Cole the Mirror: “Two years. You watched the game on Sunday, Manchester City and Liverpool, that’s the level Manchester United have to get to and that’s not going to happen by next season.
“Everything is a process. It’s about consistency. In football it’s consistency and confidence and if you marry those things together then football won’t change.
“You have to be consistent in that as well. The gaffer always used to say that if you had eight or nine playing well of course you can carry the team. If you’re all playing well then who is going to beat you? You need that belief.
“We used to beat teams in the tunnel. They’d want to keep us quiet for 20 minutes but we’d want to score two in the first 20 minutes – and, from there, everything is possible.
“It’ll take two years because you have to add players, improve, add two or three players and really improve the team. That’s where you find the consistency.
“Ole is a Man United legend and of course he knows what it takes. I hope he gets as much time as is needed. When United get it right, they get it right and they dominate because they got it right.”
