Solskjaer reveals ‘upfront and honest’ conversations with Ed Woodward and Glazer family

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he has had ‘upfront and honest’ conversations with Ed Woodward and the Glazer family.

United’s disappointing campaign finished with a 2-0 home defeat to Cardiff on Sunday, with the club having missed out on qualification for next season’s Champions League.

Solskjaer is facing a huge task to close the gap to the division’s leading sides, with United finishing a huge 32 points behind champions Manchester City.

The Manchester United boss admits the rebuilding job will be a long-term project at Old Trafford, revealing he has had ‘honest’ discussions with the club’s hierarchy regarding the club’s progress.

“I’ve had loads of conversations and they’ve been upfront and honest. We know where we are,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference.

“Of course we’re used to challenging for the title and that’s not going to be sorted quickly.

“We’re not going to catch up 32 points on the top two. We have to challenge for the top four and start the season with the aim of winning a Cup.”

Speaking on The Football Faithful‘s weekly podcast last week, Manchester United fan Peter Henry admitted he has never felt as disconnected with his beloved club as he has of late.
