As the 2018/19 Premier League season nearing its end, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said his team has what it takes to finish in the top-four.
In a presser on Monday ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Ole was asked how he hoped to battle the same team that dumped him out of the FA Cup, in the same stadium.
His reply was, “Of course, when you lose a game you have to be seen to have the mentality that you want to bounce back,”
“But the mentality wasn’t the problem against Wolves, we just didn’t find the quality.
“Wolves are a team that enjoy playing against the big sides, and their results against all the big sides have shown that. But if my players come in working like they do every day, then we’ll be fine.
“It’s up to the team in possession to play with quality, through lines and with creativity, and that’s the difficult part of football. I don’t think that’s a challenge for us more than anyone else. But we want to get to a point where we enjoy putting teams under pressure.”
“I don’t think I have to remind them,”
“They know it themselves and they want to be in the Champions League.
“Three months ago, we were 11 points behind fourth place. Maybe the players didn’t believe that they were in with a chance in November or December last year. But if we do our jobs in the last seven games, we’ll be in the Champions League next year.”
“I have to think more in the long run now, but I’m [still] here to win games, and my mentality hasn’t changed.
“I don’t know if I’ll last as long as the gaffer [Sir Alex Ferguson], but I’m going to enjoy while it lasts.”
