The Manchester United boss was speaking for the first time in the wake of the latest developments
Although they have now pulled out of the Super League, things are far from quite at Manchester United. The club continues to be in a state of turbulence with the side’s supporters persistently lambasting the Glazers for their decision to join the Super League.
Already much hated, the Glazers haven’t done themselves any favour be deciding to join the tournament. What adds to the ever growing ire against them is the fact that they were one of the integral founding members of the competition.
American owners of Premier League clubs are said to have driven the juggernaut which gave rise to the Super League. And the Glazers’ involvement hasn’t gone down well with the side’s supporters with a magnitude of people asking the Americans to exit the club.
Ole Admits Super League Mistake
In the wake of the latest developments, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally given his take on the situation. Much like his peers, the Norwegian was quick to talk about the mistake the Premier League clubs had committed in joining the Super League.
“I’m very happy that all the clubs that have admitted their mistake, that this was a bad idea – and the way that it came out as well,” Ole said.
Solskjaer attempted to move on to Sunday’s match against old foes Leeds after an initial lengthy answer on the Super League but questions about it continued to punctuate the press conference.
The botched plan has seen the Glazers come under intense, renewed pressure, but the Norwegian was coy when asked about the family who took over the club so controversially in 2005.
“You know what I’ve said about the Super League and I’m so happy that all the owners, all the clubs involved agreed that this was a mistake,” Solskjaer added.
Chance The Rapper has meanwhile involved himself in the calls asking for the Glazers to sell the club.
