Former Manchester City defender, Micah Richards, has said that whether Manchester United are ever going to win the league or a trophy, it will be in the next 2 years.
Richards believes Man United still lack a defensive midfielder capable of steering them to silverware this flavour.
According to him, Chelsea and Liverpool are too strong and will not allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to win the Premier League ahead of them this term.
Man United currently sits in the quaternary place on the Premier League tabular array.
“I think whether they are ever going to win the league or a trophy, it will be in these next 2 years, fifty-fifty though I don’t think they will,” Richards said on the BBC’s Match of the Daytime Top 10 podcast.
“I think Chelsea are too strong. I think Liverpool with [Virgil] Van Dijk at present…
“I don’t think they [United] are going to win. I think they will come up shut.
“The longevity of winning the league, 38 games, I just can’t consider it.”
“We are talking in relation to Fred and Matic in that place. McTominay has been injured, though. [Paul] Pogba’s superior going forward.
“We are talking in relation to defensively, I can’t consider it.
“Varane is lineament, the backline is superb but the holding midfield role I am not certain in relation to.”
