Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t wait for the Premier League to return after the first few weeks of fixtures were confirmed. United will be back in action with a tough match against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur on Friday, June 19, before coming up against Sheffield United the following Wednesday and Solskjaer can’t wait for the game to get going again.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “Yes, of course, we’ve been looking forward to these games for ages really, We more or less knew what the fixtures were going to be early on. There was a little tweak with Sheffield United being the second one instead of Brighton. It does make it feel like ‘yes, we’re here soon.’ The first game is two weeks from today so we need to step up the training and get an edge to our game again. Well, we hope everybody’s going to be ready for the first game, We’ve had time out so I don’t think we can expect that those lads who’ve missed lots of the football can last the full game. But now the rules have changed, we can use five subs and have nine on the bench. I think that’s helpful because footballers, after being out for so long, going into competitive games will be a challenge for them and we have to look after them injury-wise and fitness-wise. We can’t just flog one player and say to them, ‘you play every game and every minute’ because it might be a period when we have to rotate quite often.”
