Manchester United old boy, Ole Gunner Solskjaer and now current manager who has managed to turn the fortunes of the club says he is not giving up on the English Premier League (EPL) title.
Manchester United currently lie second on the league just beneath Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who are leading by seven solid points.
In a crunchy encounter today with Steve Bruce’s New Castle United, goals from Fernandes, David James and Marcus Rashford saw the Red Devils thump New Castle in a four-goal thriller, as Man United took home the 3 points after beating them 3-1.
It was against this background that Ole Gunner Solksjear says he is not giving up on the EPL title race since it is not all over.
“I’m never going to say it’s done until it’s done. You’ve seen so many examples of teams just hanging in there, doing their own jobs and something might happen. We’ve got to be there just in case. Every time we get three points we’ve done our job. We’ve got loads to play for” he intimated.
He further went on to add that even though they can’t control other teams, they can control themselves and once there are many surprises in football, it is not over yet for the Red Devils.
“We can’t control any other team but ourselves – but there have been many surprises in football.”
However, Ole Gunner Solskjear seemed unhappy about the first-half performance of his players and also showed some gleams of excitement on Dan James’ goal in the game.
“We asked them to go again after a high-intensity game and it took us to half time to get our legs and energy. I’m delighted for Dan James. He has been so positive recently and working hard and he deserved his chance. I’m delighted when he scores goals because he’s had his ups and downs” he added.
Ole also gave Marcus Rashford the benefit of the doubt stating that he can work harder than he did today despite the goal.
