The finish in the top four of the Premier League final standings did not make Manchester United feel satisfied. Their mainstay defender, Luke Shaw confirmed that this season, the Red Devils will really target the title.
The trophy is now a foreign thing for Manchester United, since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, they have never lifted a major trophy.
As a result, reshuffling the squad and changing coaches were carried out several times by the management as an effort to restore the club’s glory.
There have been four coach changes made by the club nicknamed the Red Devils, with Solskjaer as the last name that still stands today.
But in fact they are still unable to compete for the Premier League title. In fact, finishing in 3rd place at the end of last season’s standings is a proud achievement for the Red Devils.
However, defender Luke Shaw insists that his team will not be satisfied with only finishing in the top four. In the 2020/21 campaign, the minimum target is a championship trophy.
“We are ready to face the new season. We have to be strong and focus on winning trophies, not just reaching the top four. A club like us should win a trophy,” Shaw said on the club’s official website.
The Corona Virus pandemic still haunts British citizens, this situation also makes football schedules meaningless. The players only get a very short vacation time before coming back together for the 2020/21 season.
Luke Shaw found this situation quite strange, he hadn’t even enjoyed summer vacation yet.
“It feels weird, especially to me. I don’t have that much time to vacation. I haven’t even had time to vacation yet, to be honest!”
“That’s life sometimes. You have to be ready, no matter what, and this is one of those scenarios where we have a lot of world-class players coming back on Monday,” he concluded.
Manchester United itself has played a pre-season trial match against Aston Villa last Saturday (12/09) at Villa Park Stadium. Unfortunately, the match ended in a 0-1 defeat.
