Manchester United are desperate to return to the Champions League next season, they are still very much alive in the race for a top four finish in the Premier League, but according to one of their most iconic figures, winning the Europa League this season is possibly their best chance to earn that precious UCL ticket.
They could still finish in the top four, the season is still alive, but personally I look on the Europa League as a great chance
Sir Alex Ferguson said in a radio interview, talking to SiriusXM FC. Generally, looking back at how this season has gone so far for Man Utd, Ferguson sounded sympathetic to Jose Mourinho, saying that with a little bit of luck the Portuguese’s side could still be fighting for the Premier League title.
He’s been a bit unlucky actually, because there are home games this season they’ve been absolutely brilliant in, but have drawn them. If they’d got those wins they deserved, they’d be challenging for the league, there’s no doubt about that
Ferguson said, sounding optimistic about how much better things can be at Man Utd next season, especially if they manage to earn, one way or another, that golden ticket to the Champions League.
