United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer speaks about next season

Manchester United has failed on their last attempt to secure a top-four finish that would have guaranteed their qualification for Champions League next season.

Scott McTominay had given the Red devils an early goal from 16 yards but they were unable to secure the single goal till end when Isaac Mbenza in the 60th minute converted Lossl’s pass to equalize.

Speaking after the match,Ole said;

“Over 90 minutes we weren’t good enough, we missed chances to put the game away, created many chances and didn’t let them in our half really. When you go to these places, stadiums full of energy, we knew if we gave them hope they’d be up for it and unfortunately we did so.

“Sometimes it happens, concentration, application, confidence drops, it was just strange how we changed our approach to the game instead of playing simple. We chose difficult options.

“We are where we are for a reason. Over a long season we haven’t been good enough to challenge for the Champions League places. It’s not come as a surprise but we hoped to show a better performance today.”

 “We haven’t taken enough points, won enough games, scored enough goals – its always difficult when you lose your manager halfway through the season. It’s caught up with us a little bit.

“It shows us where we are. we’re not living in fantasy land thinking we can catch the top two, we’re far away but we shouldn’t be speaking about being far off the top four at Manchester United.

“We’re many levels [behind] at the moment, that’s the size of the challenge, it’s a great challenge for us but I’m sure we’ll make it.”

About next season Ole said “Every performance has an impact on who you want to keep and let go, that’s simple.
