With big summer signing of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believe their arrival has brought a renewed optimism that the club can end a trophy drought that has lasted more than four years.
“We’ve had enough disappointments, that’s for sure, and some big moments as well,” he said. “But this team has grown and matured over the last few seasons.
“That was always the plan (when I came in), we said in three years’ time we’d have a squad with experience and quality that could challenge.
“With players like David (De Gea), Harry Maguire, who’s been here a couple of years, you get that spine in the team with experience and quality. With Raphael (Varane) and Cristiano (Ronaldo) coming in, they add to that.
“It’s not the last bit, you can never say it’s the last bit, but it’s that something that you have to buy unless you’ve already won it yourself.”
“It’s up to us to get results and to prove to ourselves that we can win trophies,” Solskjaer said
“I think everyone that signs for Manchester United wants to win trophies and be part of a winning Manchester United. It’s the most magical feeling in the world to be part of a winning Manchester United team.”
“The players are fitter now and we’ve been very robust over the years and improved with the way we’ve dealt with the pandemic and with the games coming thick and fast,” he said.
“With the ones we’ve signed it makes it easier to rotate and I’ve definitely told the team that as well – I do trust all the members of the squad.”
Manchester United are preparing for their first Champions League game of the season as they will be facing Swiss side Young Boys tonight.
