Former Man United midfielder Owen Hargreaves says the Red Devils are “definitely” one of the “favorites” to win the Europa League this season after beating Real Sociedad 4-0 on Thursday night.
A top United counterattacking display in Turin saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side scored four major away goals to have one foot in the next round of the competition.
A brace from Bruno Fernandes and a goal from Daniel James and Marcus Rashford gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side an advantage ahead of the second leg at Old Trafford.
“They [Manchester United] are definitely one of the favorites to win the Europa League, ”Hargreaves told BT Sport.
“I think they will win a trophy this season, Manchester United, whatever it is.”
“And if they can finish second in the Premier League, bridge the gap with Manchester City and Liverpool, then I think they are in a good position, and then they have to strengthen [their squad] in the summer.
“Ole did a good job and if they can add a trophy that is exactly what the Manchester United fans want.”
