Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed there’ll be regular changes to the Manchester United squad when the Europa League returns.

The Red Devils are set to face Real Sociedad in a matter of days, as we aim to succeed where we failed last season.

Ahead of the tie, Solskjaer says it’s impossible to keep playing the same team as the one for Premier League matches, and promises many more players will get a chance to show what they have to offer.

The United boss said, “We can’t just deprioritise some games.

“Of course, there’ll be rotation. The squad will change. We have to freshen things up when we play Thursday and then Sunday after. It’s impossible in today’s circumstances to play the same XI every single game. You could do it, probably, if it was only once a week.

“We’ll make decisions when we get there but there will be chances in Europe, like we’ve shown before, for other players. If that takes us through the whole way, brilliant. If not, let’s look at it then. We’ve got two legs, two bites at the cherry.”

Players like Donny van de Beek and Axel Tuanzebe will likely be looking forward to the Europa League, as it will give them more opportunity to play and stake a claim for regular starting places.

  1. Ole obsession for lindlof and martial will lead man u to Land of no return.
    I hope the management could see that before it’s too late.

  2. The problem with ole is that he is always giving players game time whether worthy or not
    Its like he is there to give game time regardless of the players inefficiencies… This is wrong
    A real manager must always have his best starting eleven
    Him during his days as a player we all knew ole was never a starter but a super sub
    This nonsense of players being given game time on compassionate grounds is terribly wrong Mr ole
    Players must deserve game time based on their form n commitment
