The Season was Not a Successful One Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Admits
The manager was asked if this season had been a success for him, and he said: “No. The manager also said: “We need to get better, simple as.” “We’ve done really well this season coming through. The start was difficult. We had no pre-season and lost three of the first six.”
“We pushed in the league, maybe got closer to the top than we thought, and we got to a final. But you need to win the finals to make it a good season.” Manchester United ex-players has also been commenting on the match. Paul Scholes questioned whether Manchester United’s players feel hurt after the defeat.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, stood up for his players as he said he believes they possess the exemplary character to respond positively next season. “We have a strong, competitive squad. The spirit in the squad is good. They’re gutted in there,” he said.
“Now is not the time to point the finger at what I’d have done differently. But when you come out without the trophy, you haven’t done everything right. “We’re getting closer and closer and better. We were one kick away from a trophy and a good night. “We have to have the desire to come back next year and improve. The only way to get the margins on your side is to work harder and better.”
