Despite Manchester City running away with the Premier League title, former Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs still believes his former club have a big chance of having a “brilliant,” season.
Writing in his weekly Sky Sports column the Wales manager said:
“Will United finish runners-up? I think it is the stage of the season where you just want to build momentum. Regardless of what your priority is, if you win in the league then it rolls on to the FA Cup and then the Champions League.
I think it is a race with Liverpool for second place. They will be hugely motivated to finish above United and the clash between the two sides next weekend could prove decisive.
Second place and a trophy is a brilliant season for United and a step up from last year, while providing a platform for thinking they can challenge for the title next season.”
United’s only chance of silverware this season is in the FA Cup or Champions League. In the FA Cup they will face Brighton at home in the quarter-final.
Whereas, they will need to beat La Liga side Sevilla at Old Trafford to progress to the quarter-final of Europes most prestigious cup competition, after they drew 0-0 in Spain in the first leg of their last 16 tie.
