Solskjaer heads to Man United training ground after two hours post-Gdansk sleep to plan for next season

Posted by

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slept for two hours after flying back from the Europa League final before returning to the Man United training ground, writes Andy Mitten for SCMP.

Solskjaer, who was hoping to win his first piece of silverware since taking charge of Man United, instead saw his side defeated by Villarreal in a dramatic penalty shootout.

Though, as manager of Man United, there’s no time to sit around and feel sorry for yourself, as next season will be here before you know it and preparations need to be made.

That’s something that Solskjaer is well aware of, as reported by Andy Mitten for SCMP, who writes that the Red Devils boss clocked just two hours sleep after returning home from Gdansk.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer emotional after Man United’s defeat in Gdansk

After a short nap, he headed to the Man United training ground, where he met with assistant manager Mike Phelan and drew up plans for the 2021/22 campaign.

Mitten writes for SCMP that Solskjaer spoke with Man United football director John Murtough about the changes he is hoping will be made ahead of next season to make it a successful one.

Of course, the specifics of the conversation are not known, but you have to imagine that transfers were discussed in great detail. This is likely to be a busy summer for Man United.

No Man United fan could ever accuse Solskjaer of not caring or question his commitment to the cause. His will to win at Old Trafford will eventually see him do it, if he gets the required backing this summer.

  1. Knowing Woodward still getting his hands into transfers decisions before he ends his term & the owner full of empty words of promises but never really fulfilling it, is a deep rooted problem itself that will never end. MU will always be the second or third best behind MC. Only way forward is the rid the owner. Ole is not the right person for the next level MU must over into. Few players must go – David, Anthony, Fred, Pogba, Mata, Alex, Lindelof, Matic to make room for youngest and 4 world class players to challenge for next season.

    1. Next season will be massive and i would love united to avoid them big money transfers,would love reuben neves to join,the energy and his passes and control of a game is massive,available for around 40mil,andre silva is one we should look at as potential striker apart from cavani,we go and get sancho and pau torres,we sell pogba n fred n bailly,matic n lijgard,promote amad,elanga,

  2. Mata needs to stay. It’s not all about kicking players out to make space for youngsters. We need continuity both on the park and in the structure. Mata is the ideal person to step up into the management system. Ole has also delivered us the best results and league positions since Fergie, silverware aside, and has turned the culture round. No poison arrows flying around recently apart from those from ill educated “supporters who were not around before the Fergie years. The problem is the ownership not the playing staff.
