Rio Ferdinand has warned Jose Mourinho that Manchester United will have to significantly step their game up in the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils struggled to find consistent form in the top flight under new boss Mourinho this season as they ended up in sixth place in the table.

However, the season ended up being a successful one for Manchester United, as the Red Devils won the EFL Cup and secured Europa League glory to seal a route into next season’s Champions League.

Despite their good form in the cup competitions, their displays in the Premier League left a lot to be desired.

And former Manchester United defender Ferdinand feels that there is plenty of room for improvement from the Red Devils next season.

Ferdinand told BT Sport after the Europa League final: “He [Mourinho] will be wanting to improve on where they finished in the Premier League this year. The players will be thinking the same.

“[But] I’d rather be sat where they are [with the Europa League title] rather then second, third or fourth.”
