Solskjaer sends message to Manchester United players amid difficult fixture schedule

Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed his Manchester United players for their unwavering commitment towards the progress of the club, despite the difficult times we’re facing due to Coronavirus restrictions.

Man United have had to play an average of two matches each week since the restart of the 2019/20 season. The players have also been forced to play in the absence of their fans, while being distant from their families.

And Solskjaer admits that it must be difficult for the players to deal with all of these, knowing they were used to different conditions, as he also hailed their strength and resolve.

Speaking to the media ahead of Manchester United’s matche against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, he said, “I don’t think anyone [of the players] has surprised me as we know what they’re capable of.

“I’m impressed with the way they’ve handled the season, the situation with the pandemic and not being able to have socialising with their friends. It’s relentless, this squad has been brilliant.

“Thursday, Sunday, Saturday. This year has been the strangest of all our lives. We didn’t live in the Second World War thankfully but these restrictions have been nearly as harsh.”
