Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to say that his players must be ready for a packed fixture schedule ahead. He recently revealed that preparedness is very key if his boys want to end the season on a successful note.
According to him, if any footballer wants a comfortable life as a professional, he should not join a club like Manchester United because there are no easy rides at Old Trafford.
He added that MUFC players must get used to playing 45-50 competitive games a season because that is the required standard.
His words, “If you want an easy, comfortable life then you don’t play for Man Utd. You’ve got to be mentally strong and also physically strong and robust. To be successful you want to challenge yourself and these are the periods we want.”
“I think if you manage to recover between [games] and you get your rhythm then that’s the best way.”
“If we are to end up successful this season, next season, in two years or in five years from now then you have to get used to playing 45-50 competitive games a season at least, that’s what it should be for a Man Utd player and consistently.”
“If you have five, six, seven players who can do that then we can challenge for trophies. I like to play games… we can drip feed and rotate of course. Maybe Leicester and Brendan [Rodgers] have had time to tactically think about things, but we just carry on.”
