Graeme Souness believes Manchester United have some question marks about them this season

Speaking in an interview with The Times (h/t Mirror), Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has admitted that he still has doubts over Manchester United lifting trophies this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who arrived at the club after Jose Mourinho’s departure in December 2018, has done a lot of good things at the club but the Norwegian is yet to pick up some silverware. 

Since Solskjaer took over, United have finished as runners-up in the Premier League last season while also coming second-best in the UEFA Europa League. In contrast, United’s rivals in Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City have either won the Premier League or UEFA Champions League during the same period.

Graeme Souness has admitted that this could be the reason that puts more question marks about the Old Trafford outfit as compared to their rivals in the title race this season. Souness told The Times (h/t The Mirror):

“I agree this is the strongest top four we’ve seen in the Premier League for several years. But with the caveat that there are still more question marks against Manchester United than any of the other title contenders – Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City.“United have not won any major trophies recently and have spent a great deal of money. Liverpool and City have been the real deal for the past few years, and Chelsea have won the Champions League.”
