Man Utd not yet ready to challenge for title, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “We’re not too far away and I’m very happy with the squad.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is happy with his squad but concedes Manchester United are not yet “close enough to challenge for the Premier League trophy”.
United were in fine form prior to the suspension of football due to the coronavirus pandemic, going 11 matches unbeaten in all competitions.
“We’ve developed over the season. I think now we had a spell of 11 unbeaten,” Solskjaer said ahead of Wednesday’s visit of Sheffield United.
“But then you add Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford to that and you’re thinking ‘yeah. We’re not too far away and I’m very happy with the squad.”
“If there are any good deals to be made and players who can make us better, of course we might have to spend some money on that. But the squad is great to work with and it’s moving in the right direction.”
“We’re still not where we want to be, close enough to challenge for the Premier League trophy. But we take one step at a time.”
