Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits hurt over Liverpool title win. The Manchester United boss has congratulated Jurgen Klopp on his side’s Premier League success.
The Manchester United boss watched on on Thursday night as Jurgen Klopp’s men were champions after Man City’s loss at Chelsea.
It ends Liverpool’s 30-year wait for a 19th league title, during which time United, who have claimed 13 Premier League crowns for themselves in the intervening period.
Solskjaer congratulated Klopp and his side on a “deserved” success on Friday morning.
But he insists that he is now already looking to hunt down their bitter rivals, and is calling for greater consistency from his United stars in their bid to do just that.
“Any team that wins the championship or Premier League deserve it and deserve credit. It’s a hard league to win so well done to Jurgen and his players,” he said.
“Every time you see anyone else lift the trophy it hurts. I reckon that’s the feeling everyone with Manchester United, players or supporters. We want to get back to winning ways and that’s our challenge.”
“We are in a position now we have to improve. One we have to get in the Champions League, higher up in the league and start challenging. To get that consistency and efficiency is the challenge.”
