‘We want to win the FA Cup’ – Solskjaer reveals expectation ahead of FA Cup clash against West Ham United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to win silverware for the club and wants his team to win every single competition.

“A trophy is always what you’re aiming for,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the pre-match press conference ahead of facing West Ham in the FA Cup.

“You want to win every single competition – FA Cup, Europa League, every game you play, the Premier League. And that’s the ultimate challenge and a test for a team: to go all the way.

“We’ve improved, we’ve had a plan in place, and I think the team is getting better and better. Last season’s semi-final was disappointing to lose that one of course, and you just want to go all the way and you want to lift the trophy.”

The Norwegian added: “That’s not the be-all and end-all, of course, it isn’t; it’s the bread and butter of the Premier League that is also a measure of how good a team is.

“To get to a final, sometimes you’re lucky with the draw, but to win a final, then all the good teams have been beaten. So that’s the next step for us in the development of this team: to go all the way in a competition.”

Solskjaer and Manchester United will be looking to go one step into the final and possibly win the FA Cup this season after losing to rivals Chelsea in the semifinal stage last season.
