Jose Mourinho makes Man United prediction as Red Devils lose to West Ham
The former Red Devils boss managed to guide the club to a second-place finish in 2018.
But since then, United have looked well below the level of Manchester City and Liverpool.
“I think it is very important that the objectives are clear for everybody. What are the objectives of the club?” he said.
“From the outside, I think they will finish between fourth and sixth.
“That is my point of view and I don’t think they are a team capable of fighting for the top two, of course.
“I think it would be a good achievement for them to finish top four and make it back to the Champions League.
“That is why I think it is very important for everybody to share and agree with the objectives.
“Internally, I don’t know. I am just trying to guess, but if internally the objective is just trying to finish top four, and not at all thinking fighting for the title, I think it is the perfect environment to bring some young players and to try and do something for the future.”
But the Norwegian is struggling, with the club only winning twice so far this season.
Today’s defeat at West Ham highlighted United’s lack of attacking firepower.
Solskjaer started Marcus Rashford up front, with Mason Greenwood missing out entirely.
But the England forward limped off in the second-half, meaning there is currently no fit strikers at the club.
