“They know how” – Solskjaer backs Man United fans ahead of Old Trafford return

Solskjaer hopes that Manchester United fans will be on their best behaviour for Old Trafford return

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will welcome back Manchester United fans when the Red Devils take on Fulham at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

10,000 fans will be in attendance for our last home game of what has been a largely promising Premier League campaign. It will be the first time that fans have been permitted back since the Manchester derby on March 8, 2020.

According to Manchester Evening News, the United boss has sent out a message to those who will be in attendance against the Potters.

The United boss urged the supporters to not resort to violence or any other unsavoury deeds as the protests against the Glazers’ ownership continues. He is keen to avoid scenes that preceded the clash against Liverpool on May 2.

“Of course you hope that the game against Fulham will not be marred by any violence or over the top things.”

The game was eventually postponed and played last week, with us losing 2-4 on the night. While protests did precede the rearranged fixture, there were no acts of violence this time around.

“I know the Manchester United fans, they’re the best fans I’ve had and I’ve got such a great relationship with them and they know how to support the team so I don’t expect any of the fans coming here making any trouble.”

A return to winning ways

With supporters back to egg them on, Solskjaer hopes to feel the blessings raining once again from the stands. United have lost their last two home games against Leicester City and Liverpool and will be keen to end that streak.

Hopefully, with the fans back, the players will strive to end the season on a high.

“We’re hoping that Tuesday is going to be a positive day that we move together, that we play a good game of football.”
