Roy Keane believes it will still be some time before Manchester United can challenge at the top.
Manchester United legend Roy Keane asked the club to not get carried away by their recent run of performances and they a long way to match their rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.
A mediocre start to the Premier League this season has left them in the sixth place in the league, five points off of Chelsea. He believes the club needs to strengthen their defence in the summer transfer window.
In an interview with The Independent, Keane said, ‘They have obviously strengthened but the table doesn’t lie. Look at their points total. I know people say they’ve had one or two decent results – against Man City and Liverpool – but it’s all about the point. They haven’t been consistent enough.
‘They will certainly be pushing to get that fourth position but trying to get fourth and winning the league is a big leap. They need one or two players. I think United are short at the back.
‘So, no, I don’t see United competing in the next year or two for the league. I think there’s going to be improvement and they will close the gap, but there is a bit of work to be done for Ole and the players. They’re missing something.’
