Premier League legend Dwight Yorke has slammed the supposed upturn at Manchester United.
The former Red Devil, now 51, believes "results have not been good enough" under new boss Erik ten Hag, despite the club clinching their first piece of silverware since 2017, defeating Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final.
Yorke also highlighted that Man Utd have actually recorded more defeats across the 2022/23 season than in the final two terms of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign, losing eight matches in 2019/20 and six matches in 2021/22. "If you are a Manchester United manager, you will always be scrutinised for little details or mistakes," the Champions League winner told King Casino Bonus.

"There's nowhere to hide. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a better record than Ten Hag in his full two seasons managing the club, people talk about the progress we've made and the better style of football being played.
"Manchester United have reached the FA Cup final, won the Carabao Cup, and made it far in the Europa League so that is progress, but Ten Hag losing more Premier League games than Solskjaer in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons has to be called out.

"The results have not been good enough this season, Manchester United are looking over their shoulder and are desperately trying to hold on to fourth place, I'm not sure that's where the club wants to be.
"Ten Hag gets the praise when the team is playing well, he has to take the criticism when it goes wrong too."
Losing 1-0 at West Ham United on Sunday (May 7th), the Red Devils are now looking over their should in the race for Champions League football.
Arch-rivals Liverpool are just one point behind Ten Hag's men – with a far better goal difference, thanks in part to thrashing United in a record 7-0 demolition at Anfield – though have played a game more. Meanwhile, Brighton and Hove Albion are also mounting a late charge for a first campaign among Europe's most elite.
