Gary Neville is not buying into the notion that fourth is good enough for Manchester United this season.
After a sixth-place finish in Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge of United, some fans have suggested that a top-four finish would be progress.
But former United full-back Neville told Sky Sports: “You can’t just drop your expectation because they haven’t won it for a couple of years. They have to win the league. Mourinho has to win the league here.
“The money that’s been spent, his own personal expectations and what he’s always delivered has been titles, so I would say United have to approach this season to win the league.
“I don’t think it’s good enough to say “they’re going to get back into fourth”. That isn’t an ambition when you’ve spent the money that’s been spent and amassed the players that Mourinho has now amassed.”
