Man Utd News: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes a sly dig at Liverpool over the European Champions lack of a title win in years.
Manchester United are currently enduring their worst ever run in about 4 decades. The Club that was once addicted to success now seems a mere shadow of its glorious self in the wake of the post Sir Alex Ferguson regime.
Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the club seemed to have regained its lost touch last season. However, once his appointment was made permanent, the club has fallen back to its ways and the wins have dried up. In fact, the club are yet to register an away win since their historic victory at the Parc De Princess back in February!
However, Solskjaer is confident that club will not endure the same drought that has plagued their greatest rivals Liverpool. In fact, the Norwegian seemed to take a shot at Liverpool’s lack of domestic success in a recent presser.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes a sly dig at Liverpool
Speaking at a Press Conference ahead of Manchester United’s home fixture against Liverpool, Solskjaer said:
“I’m sure we will bounce back and win the league – and I’m sure it won’t be 30 years until we do that again,”
“A good performance and result for us here can turn a season,” Solskjaer added.
“It can change players’ confidence, players’ mood, their perception of what is good. Maybe they haven’t really believed they are good enough at times.
With a lack of confidence, you think twice instead of acting on instinct. But I know these players are good enough – no worries about that.”
Following their abysmal performance in the league so far, Manchester United sit just one point above the relegation zone. Liverpool in contrast, have won all their matches so far and comfortably sit at the top of the table.
Recent form hint at a United demolition at the hands of their arch rivals. However, this is football. A fool’s errand in this game is to count any side out until the final whistle is blown. If there’s one certainty, it is that players from both sides will lay their lives on the field tonight.
