Solskjaer admits setback, hands big hope to United fans over UCL qualification



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The target for English Premier League outfit Man United this season is not to fight for the Premier League title but to ensure qualification to the Champions League next season with a top-four finish.

This is, therefore, being threatened after they were defeated 2-1 by Wolves on Tuesday night to make it their third defeat in the last four games under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, no thanks to the own goal by Chris Smalling.

However, the Red Devils’ boss has stated that his side have no room for mistakes anymore as they are already behind their calculations.

The former Red Devils boss had earlier noted that he needed to earn 15 points from their last seven games to be able to secure a place in the top-four but with the defeat against Wolves, they will now need same 15 points but in six games.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has therefore affirmed that it is still achievable because he has a good side, noting that anyone playing against his team will find it difficult because of their level of performance.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer landed the job as Man United permanent boss as a result of his impressive performance as an interim boss.
