Solskjaer hits out at fixture organisers over Man Utd’s hectic schedule

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hit out at United's upcoming fixture list following their rescheduled Liverpool clash.

The Red Devils' Premier League tie with Liverpool had to be rescheduled following its postponement, as a result of anti-Glazer protests, last weekend.

“It’s unheard of. It’s made by people who’ve never played football at this level," fumed the Norwegian after their Europa League triumph.

"[It's] Physically impossible for the players to do it after being here [Rome] – doing Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday is impossible.

“We’ve not been dealt a good hand, but we’ll play it as well as we can.”

United reached the Europa League final for the first time since 2017 – when they beat Ajax – despite losing the second leg to Roma on Thursday evening.

"It feels good, of course," Solskjaer added. "We played one very, very good half at Old Trafford which has brought us through.

"Today we did a job, disappointed we lose the game, I never like to lose a game.

"But it was always going to be one of these games that was going to be open, chances for both teams, could have easily been 6-6 or 8-6 for them. Strange game of football."

Despite reaching a major European final, Solskjaer's focus quickly turned to their next run of fixtures: three in the next five days.

"We’re gonna need everyone in these four games," he continued.

"And we’ve just got to see how everyone is Sunday morning, we play here and then 2pm on Sunday, so that’s a short turnaround, but we’ll have to be ready and that’s just how it is.”
