Diogo Dalot and Victor Lindelöf “not good enough” for title, claims ex-Man Utd defender



| Last Updated:


It has been claimed that players such as Diogo Dalot and Victor Lindelöf are not good enough if Manchester United want to win major honours.

Erik ten Hag‘s mission as Manchester United manager is to bring major honours back to Old Trafford – since 2013, the club hasn’t even come close to a Champions League or Premier League trophy.

The Dutchman brought the club’s first trophy in almost six years earlier in 2023, defeating Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final in February, but some feel that his squad is lacking in the right players to make that step to major honour glory.

One of these is former United defender Paul Parker, who feels that two players in particular represent this group that are not good enough to help the club compete for major trophies.

“Manchester United have many players who are not good enough for a club that wants to win a major title, it is quite obvious,” he told rekatochklart.

“When I am asked if Dalot or Victor Lindelöf can play regularly for a team going to win a major title, the answer is no. It’s a relevant question because it’s players who got a lot of playing time at a club that should be aiming for the big titles.”

Manchester United currently sit chasing the pack in both competitions, with the club sitting 8th in the Premier League table and third in their Champions League group.

After a rocky start, the club have won three games in a row across the two competitions for the first time this season and look to be somewhat getting back on track – although performances must improve if the club are to climb back in amongst the rest for the remainder of the campaign.
