Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has made a bold prediction of Manchester United’s future ahead of their Sunday’s final Premier League game.
Warnock says it will take ten years for the Red Devils to be a force again. The club has not won a Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 and so far they’ve hired four managers in the process.
United sacked Jose Mourinho in December and hired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker boss and was confirmed after four months as permanent head coach. However, despite going for 11 matches without a loss after taking over, the club sits sixth on the log and won’t be featuring in the Champions League next season.
“It’s been a difficult period for him,” said Warnock.
“People say it might take two or three windows, I think it could be ten years, 15, who knows? They’ve got to catch up with Manchester City and Liverpool and it will not be easy. But they will come back and be just as good as what the other two are now,” he added.
United will play hosts to Cardiff in the final game of the Premier League on Sunday at Old Trafford.
