Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given his first Premier League press conference of the season, ahead of our much-anticipated season-opener against Leeds United.
We’ll meet our Yorkshire rivals at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon (12:30 BST), and there’s plenty of intrigue around which players might be involved.
Ole opened up on that subject and plenty more in his media briefing. Read on for the full transcript, which includes updates on Sancho, Varane, plus the Norwegian’s thoughts on Martial, Pogba, the return of fans and why making a good start is so important…
“The important thexpect from my team. The opposition you can prepare for but for us it’s about ourselves. We’ve had a good pre-season; the last couple of weeks have been really good with everyone back in.
Even though we’re still missing a few players through injury and through Covid, we’re still feeling confident ahead of the game.”
You have to start well, gain momentum. Last year we were second, the year before we finished third, so there is progression. You have to be on top form from the first to the last match.
“We were stable from the start of November to May, when we lost one match. If we manage to recreate it, we can help fight for things in March, April, May.”
