A top-four finish in the Premier League is not enough for Manchester United according to the club’s stand-in skipper Ashley Young.
England international Young has been the Manchester United skipper for the majority of the season as club captain Antonio Valencia is struggling for form and fitness.
Ashley Young was recently part of the England squad that finished in fourth spot at last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
In his latest interview, Ashley Young revealed that a top-four finish in the Premier League is not enough and that Manchester United should be aiming higher.
He further pointed out that the Red Devils’ target for this season is a top-four finish in the Premier League due to their disastrous start to the season under then manager Jose Mourinho.
Portuguese tactician Mourinho has since been replaced by former club striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has given the Red Devils the fighting chance of making the top four at the end of this season.
Manchester United were unbeaten in his first twelve league games in charge of the team until last weekend when the Red Devils were beaten 2-0 by rivals Arsenal.
Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored either side of the halftime interval to give the Gunners victory.
