Varane explains what Man Utd must do to have a better Premier League campaign.

Injuries restricted France defender Varane to just 20 league starts during his debut campaign in the Premier League.

Raphael Varane has issued a rallying cry to his Manchester United teammates, asking them to be more consistent as they work on their confidence ahead of the 2022-23 season.

The Red Devils had an abysmal display for most of last season as they ended the campaign in the sixth spot, having finished the previous season in second.

However, Varane is hoping to have a better injury-free season under Erik Ten Hag.

"It was not the best season, the best results,” Varane said. "Obviously I wanted to play a little bit more but that’s part of football and we’re looking forward for the next season.

"I think the confidence was something important and we lost the confidence when we lost some games.

"I think a lot of things we could do better and obviously we want to improve for the next season. I think we need consistency and we need to build this confidence."

Varane has no regrets about leaving Real Madrid.

Varane’s former club Real Madrid won the La Liga and Champions League titles while the France international kept receiving criticism at United.

When asked if his former team’s success made him think he shouldn’t have joined Man United, he replied: "Absolutely not.

“I think in football you have to challenge yourself and you have to try to improve and I wanted to live another experience after 10 years in the same place – so, no.

"I think the Premier League is absolutely fantastic and Manchester United are a great club, so there was no doubt about my decision."
