Former England international Paul Scholes belives Manchester United cannot compete for the Premier League title for the next two years.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are are already seven points behind early pace-setters Liverpool after a single win, a defeat and two draws, paving way for their former star midfielder to write them off for the next two seasons.
“I think you almost have to write United off for the next two years – this team – until Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has cleared everything he wants out; has four or five transfer windows,” Scholes said according to Sky Sports.
“United are going to be behind Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham.”
“I think this is United at the minute; you have to be patient with the young players but the experienced players have to step up. We’ve seen over and over again how many mistakes experienced players are making. It’s difficult for young players to come into a team like that,” he added.
