Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opines that Manchester United needs quality signings

 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opines that Manchester United needs quality signings

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reacted to his side 2-1 Europa league Semi-Final defeat to Sevilla.

Ole conceded to the fact that Manchester United needs quality signings if they want to be in the level of title contenders like Liverpool and Manchester City.

The 47-year-old maintained his line up from the game against Copenhagen as a lack of good backups affected his decision to substitute his players as late as the 87 minutes from stoppage time.

“You know at times in games like this when you create so many chances and openings it's difficult to take players with goals in them out of the pitch. Mason [Greenwood], Marcus [Rashford], Anthony [Martial], Bruno [Fernandes] — they're all goalscorers and they've been fantastic for us,” Solskjaer said when explaining why he didn’t make an earlier change.

“They created enough today to score. Yeah, we looked a little tired towards the end but we've done excellent and I made the decisions I made.”

He stated that his team needs improving and his squad needs to be strengthened.

“We need to keep improving, keep doing what they've done every single day. They've worked so hard, [have the] right attitude and mentality. We need to strengthen the squad depth of course because it's going to be a long season and only a couple weeks rest until we get going again,” Solskjaer explained.

“[We need to] keep on improving what we're doing day in and day out and believe in what we're doing. You can see at times today what we can be about and what we are about.”

He finally said that Manchester United are ready to spend on quality players to improve the team as they need to be smart about it.

“It's going to be a strange summer. We've only got a couple of weeks away from each other until we get going again. That's going to be a mental challenge,” Solskjaer said. “Of course we'll keep pushing and keep demanding more of players we have but we're looking to improve. It's a strange one. The league starts very quickly but the market's open for so long. We've got to be good, smart, and clever.

“I cannot say when or if transfers will be done but we are looking at it and we'll have to sit down because it’s a quick turnaround. We've got to be 100 percent sure when we make those deals,” he stated.
