‘Ageing’ Man U stars unlikely to win Premier League: Lineker

Alex Ferguson London, Aug 8(ANI): Former England footballer Gary Lineker reckons that Manchester United’s ageing stars may find this season’s Premier League title out of their reach.

“Rio Ferdinand is seemingly on his last legs, Ryan Giggs can’t go on for ever, Paul Scholes can’t go on for ever, Gary Neville can’t go on for ever,” News of The World quoted Lineker, as saying.

“History shows Sir Alex Ferguson’s transitional phases don’t usually last very long. But financially, where are they? They haven’t spent a lot of money. Will they improve massively on last season? Unlikely,” he added.

The 49-year-old further thinks Chelsea are worthy favourites, but fancies Arsenal to mount a more sustained challenge than last season.

“I’ve got a sneaky feeling for Arsenal. If they come up with a top goalkeeper, they will have a chance,” Lineker said. (ANI)
