Speaking to the media ahead of the Brighton clash, Ralf Rangnick said: “Right now, to finish fourth in the Premier League league is exactly what Manchester United need.
“I think this is the highest possible achievement that we can get with no other things. Yes, there’s also the Champions League.
“Hopefully to proceed into the next round in the Champions League, which is also not an easy one. But in the league currently, it’s number four, that’s our ambition.”
The Red Devils are currently fourth on the table after beating Brighton 2-0 at Old Trafford with 43 points, two points above West Ham.
Meanwhile, Man United had drawn two of their last Premier League games 1–1 despite scoring first and the team is clearly lacking consistency at the moment. However, goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes ensured that United bagged the 3 points with a clean sheet.
