Scholes: ‘It’s going to be difficult’ for Manchester United to win the Premier League

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has said it is going to be very difficult for his former side to win this year’s Premier League title.

It was a season of mixed fortunes for Manchester United last time out, finishing in their best position and with the most points since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, but still a whopping 19 points behind bitter rivals Man City.

While the Red Devils have signed three players so far, Jose Mourinho has also struggled to recruit a number of key targets, specifically a centre-back, left-back and right winger.

Now, club legend Paul Scholes, who knows all about what it takes to win the Premier League title after picking up 11 winners medals during his illustrious career, has predicted that his former side will struggle to win the league this time round:

“Every year when United don’t win something, it’s a disaster,” the 43-year-old told Bein Sports.

“He’s obviously got to try to win the league, but there’s so many good teams now, it’s going to be difficult.

“He doesn’t look happy to me. It’s a team that grind out results rather than really impress you and that’s probably what he’s happy with. That’s where he’s been at his best over the years.

“I think he’s got every resource available to him to have a team to win the league. That’s what the fans expect and what I’m sure his bosses above him expect.”
