Talksport pundit, Simon Jordan still isn’t convinced about Manchester United and Erik ten Hag’s capability to challenge for the premier league title, with the former Crystal Palace owner expressing his doubts on the journey the team has been in this season as opposed to how well Arsenal and Manchester City have been.
The former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan, has played down Manchester United’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season, despite their recent form. Jordan believes that United still have a long way to go to be truly back to what they used to be, and urged supporters to be realistic about their chances.
While United have already won the Carabao Cup this season, beating Newcastle 2-0 at Wembley Stadium last weekend, Jordan believes that winning the Premier League would send a clear message that United are back to their old selves.
In an interview with talkSPORT, Jordan said, “But when you’re talking about Man United being back, you are talking about Man United winning the Premier League. Ask yourself, are they close to Manchester City, are they close to Arsenal? Possibly they may well be, but I still think there’s a journey they’ve got to go on.”
Jordan pointed out that United have not won the Premier League for a very long time now and still have a long way to go to achieve that. He believes that while United have made some progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, they are not yet close to the level of City and Arsenal.
Despite Jordan’s skepticism, United are currently sitting in second place in the Premier League, five points behind Manchester City. They have also made it to the quarter-finals of the Europa League and are still in the FA Cup. However, it remains to be seen whether they can maintain their form and challenge for the Premier League title.
