Manchester United told they have to win the Premier League this season
Manchester United and Jose Mourinho have been told they simply have to win the Premier League this season.
That’s according to former right back turned Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville, who thinks that the money spent by Jose Mourinho means United have to do far better than last season’s final position of sixth.
United have to win the league – but according to Neville, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are in the same boat after only having a place in the top four to show for their efforts last season.
That means one of the two managers will be losing out – and failing this season in terms of the league, and currently it’s Mourinho’s old adversary Guardiola who is leading the way, with his side five points clear at the top of the Premier League.
Neville told Sky Sports: “United would have been seven points behind City with a draw – then City would have had a chance to go 10 points clear next weekend before United played at Chelsea.
“That would’ve been a big gap. So now, ultimately it gives United a much better chance.
“United have got to win the Premier League this season. Manchester City have got to win the Premier League too.
“Both teams, with the money invested, second isn’t good enough.”
