Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has stated that the Red Devils have the necessary players to win the title.
He said that a team like Manchester United should always be challenging for honors, and he believes that they have the proper ammunitions to win the title this time.
He said that the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager had motivated the players as well as the fans and they believe that this could be their year. Ever since Alex Ferguson has retired from management, Manchester United has not managed to finish better than fourth in the league, but Michael Carrick believes that this will change this year.
He said that the new players have also improved the team and that they have a much better squad than last year. He believes that the player must give everything they can in order to win the title and that they should be working hard in training.
However, he admitted that the title race would be quite difficult this season with many teams having new managers and players. He said that it would be one of the most competitive seasons in a long-time, and it is important that the players remain focus if they want to have a chance to win the title. He said that he is ready for the season and that he will give everything he has in order to help the team.
Manchester United has started the season well with two wins in two matches. They are currently at the top of the Premier League, and their first major test will be when they will be facing Manchester City in a couple of weeks. So far they have been playing against smaller teams, and it is only after the Manchester derby that we will have a better idea of the strength of the team.
