Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has slammed the Premier League fixture scheduling that gave us just only 48 hours to prepare for our clash against Everton after our trip to Istanbul on Wednesday.
The Norwegian branded the fixture scheduling a sham and feels we were setup to fail.
“We were set up to fail. The kick-off time set us up to fail. We have been to Turkey, played loads of games this season already, we got back Thursday morning and we are playing Saturday lunchtime, it’s an absolute shambles,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told BT Sport after Man United’s win at Everton on Saturday.
“The authorities set us up for fail, who is responsible? We’ve had enough of that. Players this season, in these times, a pandemic, mentally and physically it’s draining. Let us play on a Sunday, there’s an international break after this, it’s a joke.”
Despite the limited preparation time, we able to beat Carlo Ancelotti’s side 3-1 thanks to a brace from Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani’s first goal for the club.
