Second best is not good enough for Manchester United. We know that next season things need to improve if we are to catch Man City, which I believe for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is his ultimate objective as Manchester United manager.
I think the Norwegian is doing a great job as manager at Old Trafford. I believe in the process, but it needs a trophy this season, in the shape of the Europa League next week. That needs to be secured one we’ve got second-place wrapped up in the Premier League.
It’s not good enough for a club like United, but we can see the progress from last season and finishing second will show people we are not a million miles away either. A force to be reckoned with.
Solskjaer is keen to take the next step towards progress, telling MUTV: “That is progress and of course that’s been the aim for the last few weeks. Two months or so ago we were hoping for more, but results didn’t pan out the way we wanted them to and we couldn’t keep up with the champions unfortunately. But second place is progress and let’s make sure we get the points. Performances are the most important thing because if performances come, the results will come.”
Manchester United take on Fulham at Old Trafford tonight with a number of fans allowed back into the stadium.
A win will secure second-place for the Red Devils.
