Manchester United have ‘not been good enough’ this season, according to Luke Shaw, but they feel they can win the Champions League.
The Red Devils are now sixth in the Premier League and were humiliated by Championship side Middlesbrough in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Interim manager Ralf Rangnick, who took over from former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November, has been unable to resurrect the club, and they are now in danger of missing out on the top four this season.
While Shaw admits that this season has not gone according to plan, he maintains that there is still hope in the locker room that they can put together a strong run in Europe.
And, with a pivotal Champions League match against Atletico Madrid approaching, the defender thinks that there is a conviction that the Red Devils can ‘go and win’ the entire competition.
“The season so far, in general, is, of course, not good enough,” Shaw told talkSPORT.
“I think where we want to be and where we are now are two completely different places.
“Obviously, we’re very devastated about getting knocked out of the FA Cup. It was, obviously, a competition that we felt that we could win.
“And, of course, we’re not in a position in the league that we want to be in – we don’t deserve to be with the results we’ve had.
“With how things are going, with the ups and downs, it’s not good enough for a team that wants to win the title.
“You look at the top teams and their consistency, they’re at a high level and are consistently winning matches – we haven’t been doing that.
“But it’s something we’ve looked at and it’s something we need to improve on.
“Of course, we’re still in the Champions League, a lot of people will doubt us, but we have to have that belief that we can go and win it because it’s important to have that inside the dressing room and to have something to fight for.”
