Solskjaer conference summary of the Manchester United match

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the participation of newcomer Jadon Sancho against Leeds United on Saturday.

And this is in the opening round of the English Premier League, indicating that the deal of Frenchman Raphael Varane has more time to complete.

Solskjaer said at the press conference for the Leeds United match:

“It was a good start for us and the last two weeks have been very good with the return of the players and although we are still missing some players due to injury and the Corona virus, we are confident before tomorrow’s match, Saturday, and Sancho’s participation is confirmed.”

Solskjaer added:

“There is always pressure before every season we have to get off to a good start. We have expectations from ourselves. This club wants trophies and good football and I expect us to continue developing our style in this new season.”

Solskjaer continued:

“The first game of the season anyway, no matter who we play against, it’s going to be fantastic. Our fans were fantastic against Brentford and Everton in the pre-season games. It was very good.”

Solskjaer added:

“It will be great with the fans tomorrow. We have waited a long time and I hope we can play good football for our fans and it will be important for us to start well.”

Regarding the title race, Solskjaer said:

“We gradually reduced the difference last season and nothing is difficult for these players, but it will take a very good season.”

And about the French, Raphael Varane said:

“There are still some details and it will take time and unfortunately the deal is not 100% done and I can say that he will not participate tomorrow because he has not trained with us.”

Solskjaer said of Pogba:

“He’s a Manchester United player with one year left on his contract, every conversation we had was positive and he knows what we want.”

And about striker Edinson Cavani:

“He in England has finished his quarantine period and has additional leave for personal reasons.”

Solskjaer said of Martial:

“The plan was for him to play for 45 minutes against Everton and now he’s ready for tomorrow. You can see that determination between his teeth again, he’s up to the competition and we’re happy to have him.”

Solskjaer concluded:

“Eric Bailey and Emad Diallo are in England waiting to get the green light to join the team. They’ve had a very exciting summer competing in the Olympics so they should be in great shape.”
