Jamie Redknapp makes bold claim about Man United’s season
Jamie Redknapp discusses Manchester United's current form and looks ahead to the rest of the season
Jamie Redknapp believes that Manchester United could go on to win a Premier League and Europa League double this season, despite their stuttering form.
The Red Devils suffered an embarrassing Champions League exit on Tuesday night after they failed to navigate their way out of the group stage due to their 3-2 loss at Wolfsburg.
United have been struggling to find consistent form in recent weeks and were held to a goalless draw by West Ham United at Old Trafford last weekend.
Louis van Gaal’s side are now gearing up for a campaign in the Europa League after being parachuted down into Europe’s second tier club competition.
United are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table but just three points behind leaders Leicester City as the hectic festive schedule looms large.
And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp feels that it is almost impossible to predict where United will end up this season.
Redknapp told Sky Sports: “When you look at Chelsea or Arsenal, you can put your finger on where they are. But with United, it’s so hard to tell.
“They’re in a really good position in the Premier League. Their Champions League exit was obviously disappointing but would it surprise me if they went on to win the Europa League? No it wouldn’t.”
He continued: “This is the strange position United are in. We can’t say they’re on track. We can’t dress up the problems there. Yet they’re in a strong position in the Premier League. They could go on to win the Premier League. And will probably sign a load of expensive players in January.
“I’m intrigued to see how it works out for them.”
