Manchester United is no longer the powerhouse that they once were in the Premier League, but they were able to return to the Champions League after a fourth-place finish in the 2014-15 season.
This was an improvement from finishing in seventh in the 2013-14 season, but midfielder Michael Carrick knows that his team is capable of more and refused to be satisfied with fourth place.
“All in all, we can be satisfied with getting in the top four but it’s not worth celebrating. Hopefully we can do a bit of celebrating next season,” Carrick said to ESPN FC.
The Red Devils played their first season with Louis van Gaal as their manager after they sacked David Moyes, but it will be nearly impossible to replace legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Ferguson led Man United to 13 Premier League and two UEFA Champions League titles.
Despite his blunt comments on the Red Devils’ most recent season, Carrick went on to praise van Gaal for his first season in Old Trafford while being there for him during a calf injury.
Man United will look to strike big in the upcoming transfer window and gain some youth on their squad, as many of their key players are aging veterans in their 30s.
