LONDON: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said yesterday that Manchester United’s improvement under his leadership should not be seen with many of the trophies they have won.
Solskjaer’s squad faces a decisive week this season as they work one step further to find their first championship under the Norwegian.
United will travel to AC Milan early tomorrow morning as part of the second round of the last 16 of the Europa League after being tied 1-1 in Manchester.
After the tricky test, United will head to Leicester for the FA Cup quarter -finals early Monday morning.
Not wanting to think about the outcome of the match, United boss Solskjaer is confident he has seen a significant improvement in the team’s level since replacing Jose Mourinho in 2018.
“When you look at the culture and what’s going on every day, I feel like there’s a lot of improvement in the work routine we do every day,” Solskjaer said.
“Players do what we want and it’s up to outsiders to assess the level of improvement.
“We are 12 points more than what we achieved at the same time in the league last season. Of course we are aiming to win the trophy.
“But like I said, sometimes trophies can hide other facts of what’s going on at the club.”
