Speaking to Sky Sports about Erik ten Hag’s goals for the 2022/23 Premier League season, former Old Trafford defender Mikael Silvestre said: “It’s got to be to finish on top.
“You need to aim for the top spot [in the league]. I know it’s not realistic at the moment but you’ve got to aim as high as possible.
“You need to put in your head to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool. It might be difficult but that’s the only way to go about it and change the mentality.”
For what it’s worth, Ten Hag will not be expected to challenge for the Premier League title right with Dutchman looking to rebuild the Old Trafford squad first.
However, that task could prove to be equally difficult with Manchester United yet to make a single first-team signing so far in this transfer window.
