Former Manchester United player Robbie Savage has backed the club to finish the season on a strong foot by winning silverware.

“As it is, Solskjaer could finish in the top four, win the FA Cup – where United face a reunion with Wayne Rooney against Derby in the fifth round – and I expect them to progress in the Europa League after Thursday night’s 1-1 draw with Bruges in Belgium.

The former United midfielder also praised Solskjaer for his shrewdness in the transfer market so far:

“He’s had one good transfer window where he landed Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James. Now he’s one good window away from putting out a team in his own image. All of a sudden, the path to redemption is beginning to take shape.”

Currently, the club are fighting to finish in the top-four this season in order to secure Champions League football for next season.
