Andy Cole says his former side Manchester United should not celebrate finishing in the Premier League’s top four.
After a disappointing start to the season, the club have been revitalised since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as manager in December, and are now within two points of the Champions League places.
Despite their upturn in form former United striker Cole, who won eight major honours in a six-year spell at Old Trafford, believes a top four finish falls below expectations and should not be reason for celebration.
“We have had three managers in that time [since Ferguson left].” Cole told the BBC.
”Are we moving forward, are we standing still, and when we are talking about Manchester United finishing in the top four and it’s time to celebrate, I am scratching my head.
“That’s not something to celebrate. It’s Man United. For me, you celebrate winning the league, getting to the European Cup final or winning the FA Cup, or whatever.”
