Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an update about the state of his squad as the Premier League continues to discuss plans to resume the season.
After signing Bruno Fernandes in January, Man Utd looked to have turned a corner, with a string of good results enough to get them back in the conversation about qualifying for the Champions League.
The Premier League’s suspension came at a time when United were showing some real momentum, and Solskjaer will be hoping his side can carry on where they left off when the season kicks off again.
Talking to David Jones on the Sky Sports Football Show, the Norwegian said that he has all his players back in England now, so Man Utd will be able to get back down to business quickly once a footballing return is permitted.
“Well, you do have that little bit of hope and feeling that we’ll be back soon. It’s been so long,” Solskjaer said.
“But if you go a month back, you think we’ll be there soon, and that’s been one of the most difficult things for players and for myself, is the unknown. The uncertainty of when are we going to get back training and back playing.
“We’re more or less everyone back now. We’re getting ready. At least we’ve got back together and we can turn it around quickly if something happens.”
He also spoke about how his staff have been keeping during the pandemic, adding that they’d been keeping safe and acting within government guidelines.
“We’ve not been in the training ground yet, we’ve kept to the rules and the boys have been good,” Solskjaer said.
“They’ve been doing their training in different fields or back home in their gardens, and the training ground’s been locked to be fair. The doctor’s probably been the only one that’s been there!”
