Quadruple On The Cards? Mike Phelan Reveals Impressive Manchester United Goals

The best double act since Morecambe & Wise?
The best double act since Morecambe & Wise?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his number two Mike Phelan have taken Manchester United on a simply stunning run since they took over from Jose Mourinho in the dugout of the most successful club in English football.

The Red Devils are currently - based purely on form - the best team in England once again, having picked up an astonishing 22 points from a possible 24 and progressed through two rounds of the FA Cup.

They may have been knocked out of the League Cup somewhat prematurely by Derby County back in September and have tricky fixtures in the FA Cup and Champions League against Chelsea and PSG, respectively, Phelan has set his and his side’s sights hide in the quest for glory in the next season in his second stint as a fundamental part of the coaching staff on the sidelines;

“I've experienced a lot of things at Manchester United and I want this next generation of players to do the same,” reports The Mirror.

“They've won some things, but they haven't won everything – and I want them to win everything. Why shouldn't we?

“You've got to be greedy in this game and to keep pushing. What they're here for, surely, is to be better players, better individuals and to win something for the club and themselves."

The last trophy United won was back in 2017 when they completed a Double of sorts, picking up the League Cup and Europa League. They haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013, when the great Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.

“Players are talented here because they're here for a reason,” Phelan continued.

“It's then up to them to embrace Manchester United, the ethos, and everything around it. That's the reason why they're here.

“Ability shouldn't be an issue – they shouldn't get through the door if they haven't got the ability, so what is important is that we make sure we only bring in that quality and personality, that charismatic sort that can enhance what is already here. That's a major responsibility.

“Winning is there, it's got to be - the size of the football club demands that. We're trying to build something.”

Manchester United next take on Fulham at Craven Cottage in the Premier League.
