According to the former Red Devils striker, Andy Cole, his ex-team is still building but it won’t be any time soon when they can lift a Premier League trophy.

The last time Manchester United lifted the English Premier League title was in 2013.

Since then, the team has only challenge for it in the 2017-2018 season.

And according to former Red Devils forward, Andy Cole, the team is “years away” from winning a domestic trophy.

“I genuinely believe we’re still a few years away,” he told Goal.

“We’ve just got to keep improving, keep bringing in better players and just try and improve season by season because the two teams at the top – Liverpool and Manchester City – they’re pulling away from everyone.”

“I was in a team at Manchester United where we were doing exactly the same thing and in the end, everyone else closed the gap,” he added.

“It’s a case of just keep persevering, keep improving season by season and closing the gap.”

Cole also spoke about the problem between Roy Keane and Alex Ferguson: “It’s disappointing but I’m just hoping that both of them can address the situation and work it out because I’ve got a lot of time for the pair of them.”

“I spoke to Roy the other day and I’ve always had a great relationship with Sir Alex, so fingers crossed they will be able to sort it out.”
