Although he is unsure about when the season will start, he is determined to be ready for it. He intends to use technology to ensure that he stays on top of things.

“That’s the good thing now with technology and we’re lucky in that sense.”

He has stressed on the need to keep in regular touch and intends to message and call his players. Solksjaer has never been the one to miss out on an opportunity, both as a player or now as a manager.

He is doing the same now by spending more time with his family until his job comes calling again.

“It’s been nice to spend some time with them.”

Manchester United are currently in 5th spot, three points behind Chelsea. It is imperative that we return to the Champions League next season.

With nine more games to go, we stand a good chance of overhauling Frank Lampard’s side. We also have one foot in the last eight of the Europa League and have a reasonable chance to win the tournament.

United last won the trophy in 2017 and qualified for the Champions League. We have two bites at the cherry this season and should take it to accelerate our progress under the Norwegian.
