Manchester United’s season is over. Jose Mourinho’s first year in charge has definitely been a successful one, with the Red Devils claiming two of four major trophies on offer. It certainly bodes well going forward, and this season we’ll be hoping to give a much better showing in the Premier League.
That is a sentiment echoed by Warrington-born winger Jesse Lingard. The 24-year-old was asked what he can take from this season into the next campaign, and how he thinks we will fair overall. Lingard responded by claiming
Lingard responded by claiming that United can take a lot of positives, before adding that he believes we could well be challenging for Premier League glory; which is obviously the end goal for Mourinho and the rest of the squad.
“Of course. There have been a lot of positives this season; the manager has got us well drilled and if we take that into next season with more goals and turning draws into wins, I don’t see why we can’t be challenging for the title.” Lingard told Manchester United’s official website.
I think Mourinho has been in charge long enough now to work out who is good enough and who isn’t. He’s brilliant when it comes to ironing out those squad issues and I fully expect to see somewhat of a culling happen over this summer, with players that suit his style of football coming in to replace them.
I’m excited to see what additions we get. I fully expect at least one marquee signing, and if the squad can get over that mental hump of converting home draws into wins, we’ll be there or there abouts come next May, I’m very confident in that.
For now, though, let’s just enjoy the transfer season as best we can and have 100% confidence in our manager to make the right signings. Heck, he hasn’t let us down yet in that department.
