Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has issued a no-nonsense statement regarding his silverware ambitions for the club.
The Reds have not won a trophy since Jose Mourinho guided the team to the Europa League trophy in the 2016-17 season and have no lifted the illustrious Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in 2013.
Ahead of the new season which kicks-off this weekend, although United will not play their league opener against Crystal Palace until September 19 due to their extended European campaign, Solskjaer has reassured fans that he remains committed to bringing silverware back to Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with BBC Radio5 Live Solskjaer highlighted his long-term vision to bring success back to United, the Norwegian said: “I can’t say that we won’t win anything for the next 20 or 30 years, we’re Man United.
We need to hurry that process up.”
Solskjaer will be hopeful the club can bring in further additions to the squad after former Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek joined the Reds earlier this month in a move which cost the club £39m, as per Sky Sports.
Elsewhere, the club’s committed stance on securing number-one target Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund has not changed but talks have been slow. However, according to a report last night from Sky Sports the Reds have finally managed to finalise the 20-year-old’s personal terms as well as his agent’s fees.
United will be raring to go when they kick their season off in a little over a week’s time but it goes without saying an addition or two will be needed if Solskjaer is to continue in his approach of bringing silverware back to United’s trophy cabinet.
