Craig Bellamy insists Manchester United are 'nowhere near' rivals

‘They are nowhere near these two clubs’: Craig Bellamy insists it will take three or four YEARS for Manchester United to get to the level of bitter rivals City and Liverpool

  • The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson retired
  • Man City have won three league titles in that time as Liverpool close in on one
  • Craig Bellamy thinks Man United are three or four years away from being on top
  • The Red Devils sit in fifth place – three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea

Craig Bellamy believes Manchester United are nowhere near the level of bitter rivals Manchester City and Liverpool. 

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

City have won three league titles in that time as Liverpool edge closer to winning their first in 30 years on the back of winning their sixth European cup last season.

Bellamy thinks United have got some way to go before they are winning major trophies again.

He told Sky Sports: ‘Coronavirus hit, and it seemed to be quite a good time at Manchester United, everyone is talking about Manchester United, but they are nowhere near these two clubs. 

‘Nowhere near. And it’s going to take a good three or four years to get near.

‘The balance [City and Liverpool] have in the team, the way they play, the intensity they play at, the pressing and understanding of what they’re doing, takes them well ahead. These two teams are a big gap ahead of anyone else.’

United were scrambling to make it into the top four before the season was suspended.

The Red Devils sit in fifth place – three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Bellamy won the Scottish Cup at Celtic and the League Cup with Liverpool during his time as a player.
