Premier League: the top four of Man United, a disappointment in itself, says Ashley Young
Manchester United Would Like To Win Trophies Instead Of Focusing On A Top Four Finish To Qualify For The Champions League Ashley Young Said.
United's Quest For A Top Four Finish Ended With A 1-1 Draw At Already-relegated Huddersfield Town On Sunday And The Highest The 20-time League Winners Can Finish In The Season Is Fifth, Only Enough For A Spot In The Second-tier Europe League.
" I've Said For Years Our Club Should Be Talking About Winning Titles And Winning Trophies," Young Said.
" We've Done That In Many Years And For A Club Or Our Size, When You're Talking About Finishing Four, I Think That's Just A Disappointment In Itself."
Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Had Managed To Reel In United's Top Four Rivals When He Was Appointed Caretaker Manager In December, The Team's Form Started To Slide After He Was Made Permanent Manager In March.
Chelsea Sealed Their Place In The Top Four This Weekend While Tottenham Hotspur Are All But Assured Of The Final Spot.
" We Haven't Managed To Get Ourselves In The Top Four," Young Added." We Needed Other Teams To Help Us Out And We Needed To Help Ourselves And We Haven't Done That.
" I Think We Need To Go Away, Have A Look At Ourselves In The Summer And Come Back Fighting Fit And Ready To Win Titles And Trophies."
