Manchester United boss: I’m very confident squad will fly

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his Manchester United squad that they are better than the club’s famed treble winners of 1999, following the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he’s the right manager for Manchester United.

United have dropped five points from the last six available to turn up the heat on the manager.

Asked if he could get the best out of his squad, Solskjaer was firm in his response.

“I am very confident we will get the best out of this squad,” he told a post-match press conference on Saturday.

“A lot has happened this month and we have had Rafael (Varane), Cristiano (Ronaldo) and Jadon (Sancho) with us from August, well Cristiano only from September, so we have loads to work on and we need to improve.

“We know that, I know that, but I do believe in this group of players and the coaching staff that I have got.

“So, yes, is the short answer.”
