Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has said it’s disappointing that the club has fallen out of the title race, after dropping points against Everton over the weekend.
The former footballer-turned pundit made this known recently on Sky Sports, as he spoke about his predictions for the Premier League title this season.
According to Neville, he never quite believed United could win the title this season because they’re not really up there with the likes of Manchester City for now, although he expects that to change next season.
He said, “Manchester United are just not quite there in terms of winning the title, I never thought they were.
“I never thought they were because the performances weren’t good enough and there was something missing. I didn’t expect them to win the league at the start of the season, they’re not there yet.
“It’s disappointing but it’s not surprising. I think they’re on the right track under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I think it’s been clear over the last few weeks with the results, that form is not going to win you the title.
“For me, I don’t expect them to win the title this year. But what I do expect is for them to get closer to Liverpool and Manchester City and I expect them to challenge next year. I think there’s that sense in the club.”
Meanwhile, Neville doesn’t seem to be the only one sharing this sentiment, as the boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, also said we shouldn’t even be considered among title favourites, after the 3-3 draw against Everton over the weekend.
