Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slams the Premier League
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer slammed the Premier League for the fixture schedule handed to the club. The Red Devils played Istanbul Başakşehir in midweek, and only came back to England on Thursday, to prepare for the Saturday lunchtime kick-off.
"It was an impossible kick-off time we were handed today. How can you expect players to perform to the best of their ability when you set us up for 12.30? It’s an absolute joke. How can you defend the product, and the quality of the product? You could see in the first half today we were excellent then the second half, of course, we were tired," Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
"We tried a month ago to move this game, why not? What sense is there for us to play Saturday when you can play us on Sunday and then there is an international break. We want to see football with quality and our boys were set up to fail today with the schedule. They need to take a step back, think twice and dwell upon the times we’re in," he added.
"I pushed my club to really fight for this kick-off time in this one, to give us at least half a chance. There are too many serious injuries in the Premier League already - not just on my team, on all teams - because mental fatigue and physical fatigue are a factor. We want this product to be the best in the world and it is at times. But we don’t want it to harm the players," Solkskjaer signed off.Published 07 Nov 2020, 22:25 IST
