The manager of Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that the current setup of the club is good enough to win anything this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not been able to win any title for the Premier League club after over three years at the club as the club continued to persuade the club’s fans to support the coach.
The Norwegian tactician who is a former player of the club has shown brilliance as a manager so far as he led Manchester United to a second-place finish in the Premier League last season. He also led Manchester United to a Europa League final last season but got defeated by a Spanish Spanish La Liga side, Villarreal.
The failure of the club to win a major title has been a cause of concern to most fans of the club but that should not be a cause of worry for them according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
This season is expected to be different from previous seasons because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to make some dream signings ahead of the 2021-2022 season.
Recall that he signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer who is expected to spice up the club’s attacking options from this afternoon, August 14, 2021, when the Red Devils play their first league game against Leeds United at 12:30.
Aside from Sancho, Manchester United have brought in a new goalkeeper, Tom Heaton, a product of the club’s academy who has been playing for Aston Villa since 2019.
Also, the Premier League club is closing in on signing 28-year-old French defender Raphael Varane, from Real Madrid. This means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has strategically strengthened the club’s attack, defense, and goalkeeping positions of the club ahead of the 2021-2022 season.
His midfield is still very intact especially with the presence of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, and a couple of other options who can still hold their own in the midfield.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “I’m excited by the squad. I don’t think anything is beyond these boys. It’s just how we fare between now and the end of the season.
“I’ve seen progress; progress in the coaching staff, playing staff, in the club and how we run things, but we haven’t won anything yet.
“That is what we are here for at Manchester United. I’m used to winning. When I was here as a player, we finished third once and were either first or second every other year.
“We know we are in the most intense and competitive league in the world, and we have to be at the top of our games from game one to 38 to have a chance of winning the Premier League.”
On the return of fans for this season’s Premier League campaign, Solskjaer said: “The start of the season is very important,” the Norwegian said. “We were very bad at home at the start of last season but then, away from home, we were unbeaten.
“Finally we’ve got our fans back, that’s going to mean a hell of a lot for our players, it’s going to give us energy. That first tackle, that first shot, is going to give our players and fans energy.
“We went the whole season undefeated away from home last year so let’s hope we get that same consistency at home as we did away.”
Manchester United’s first game of the 2021-2022 Premier League season will kick off at 12:30 later today, August 14, 2021. The match will take place in the presence of fans at Old Trafford.
