Man United must aim for the title not top four, says Lou Macari

Lou Macari says that Manchester United must aim for the Premier League title under Louis van Gaal next season

Lou Macari believes that Manchester United must aim for the Premier League title under Louis van Gaal next season.

The Dutchman officially took over at United on Wednesday after being appointed as David Moyes’ successor earlier this summer.

This is Manchester United, we have to be talking about the title

The 62-year-old has been charged with guiding the Red Devils back into the Champions League following their seventh-place finish last season.

But ex-midfielder Macari feels that his former club should be aiming higher than just a top-four finish.

“I’m not interested in the top four, this is Manchester United, we have to be talking about the title. It’s as simple as that,” Macari told talkSPORT.

“When David Moyes first came in I thought he would do it, but things when wrong and we saw what happened last season, it was one of United’s worst seasons for a long, long time.

“Louis van Gaal is coming now and the word is he’s going to get the squad organised, disciplined and back to playing the Manchester United way.

“I hope that’s the case, but it’s difficult to know how it’s going to work until you see a few games.”
