“More or less the only positive from today is that the season is over. We meet again on 1st July and we will work back to where we belong,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live
“To reach the leaders it will take a long time. For ourselves, the short-term focus in the league will be getting into the top four.
“We have got the Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup to go for a trophy because Manchester United can’t go many years without winning a trophy. José [Mourinho] won the Europa League last and that is a realistic ambition.
“In the league, the points we are behind the top two, they have been excellent, those two. Absolutely exceptional. And we are five or six points behind Arsenal, Tottenham [Hotspur], Chelsea. They are the ones we have to make sure we catch up and don’t let anyone closer to us.”
Will United finish in the top four next season?
