Title challenge ‘not realistic’ for Manchester United next season – Solskjaer
The Old Trafford boss does not think the Premier League club will challenge for the league title next season as he warns of a top-six battle
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Manchester United face a battle to finish in the Premier League’s top six next season, let alone challenge for the title, though the Red Devils manager is confident he will be granted time to lead the club back to the summit.
United have not won the Premier League since Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in 2012-13 as the Manchester club languish in sixth position this term, 29 points adrift of leaders Liverpool heading into their remaining two matches.
Solskjaer was permanently appointed manager in March, having impressed during his interim spell following Jose Mourinho’s December sacking, but United have only won two of their past 10 games in all competitions.
