Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly given his verdict on his Manchester United squad after signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window.
According to The Sun via Daily Mail, Solskjaer has told his Manchester United squad that they are better than the club’s 1999 treble-winning side that the Norwegian was a part of.
The Red Devils finished 12 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City last season but Solskjaer expects this Manchester United team to challenge for the title this season.
Solskjaer was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s United that won the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup 22 years ago, with the former striker adopting the role of ‘super sub’ at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer ended that campaign with 18 goals to his name but Ferguson’s squad also had Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, who netted 29 and 24 goals respectively that season.
