Paul Scholes uses Arsenal to send warning to Man United
Paul Scholes says Manchester United must not fall into the trap of settling for top-four finishes - like Arsenal
Paul Scholes has warned Manchester United that they cannot fall into the trap of securing regular top-four finishes in the Premier League rather than win trophies.
The Red Devils are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table as they bid to secure Champions League qualification in Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
Manchester United finished fifth last season under Louis van Gaal and are aiming to break back into the top four this term.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have consistently finished in the top four spots in recent seasons under Arsene Wenger but have failed to win the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season.
And former Manchester United midfielder Scholes has warned the Red Devils against settling for top-four finishes in the top flight.
Speaking to the Republik of Mancunia, Scholes said: “We don’t want that, settling for top four [like Arsenal].
“But I don’t think there’s any doubt we’ll finish top four anyway.”
Manchester United are currently gearing up for their FA Cup fifth-round clash against Blackburn Rovers on Sunday.
