The former Manchester United and Irish captain Roy Keane was speaking to Sky Bet and believes Manchester United are still a long way off the mark and very far away from chasing down Liverpool and Manchester City.
“I don’t think they will close the gap. I think they will be a bit better. They have quality and the recruitment, but you can’t look beyond Liverpool and Man City. The manager no doubt will be given money to spend, how he recruits, four or five experienced players have left the club, which I think is a good thing.”
“But I still don’t see United competing with Liverpool and Manchester City, not just yet.”
The 50 year old was very complementary on Manchester City and their manager;
“Brilliant players, they’ve obviously improved with an unbelievable striker [Haaland] and they’ve got one of the greatest managers ever in Pep [Guardiola].”
