United ends mediocre season with home loss

Herrera confirms Man Utd exit Herrera confirms Man Utd exitMore

Manchester United have ended their 2018-19 season with a 2-0 home defeat against relegated side Cardiff City. With the club having only registered two victories in their last ten encounters in all competitions, Solskjaer was quite frank in his assessment of his side's chances of winning the league title next season.

Manchester United have finished sixth in the Premier League with 66 points from 38 games.

If those United supporters, many of whom booed off their team at the end of both halves and most of whom left before the post-match lap of "honour", needed proof of just how far United have fallen, it came over the campaign's final week.

"It's not like a threat, but whoever is not ready on July 1 will probably stay here and not travel with us because we only want players we can use over there".

"To reach the leaders it will take a long time".

United had been challenging for third place as recently as the March worldwide break only for the catastrophic loss of form, that directly followed Solskjaer's appointment on a permanent basis, to cost them - and that despite the indifferent showings of their rivals for a top-four finish.

"For me, as a player, the last two weeks before we came into pre-season, that was my time to try to get fit to impress the gaffer when I started back". Jose [Mourinho] won the Europa League last and that is a realistic ambition.

Each player has been given an individual fitness and nutrition plan for the summer to keep them in top shape in the off-season and Solskjaer has insisted that if the plans are not adhered to, players will be dropped from pre-season. Absolutely exceptional. And we are five or six points behind Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea. We want to get back to where we sued to be.

In videos on social media, the French World Cup victor received abuse from his own supporters while performing the end-of-season lap of honour.

Greenwood clocked up all 90 minutes against Cardiff, with Solskjaer trusting him to remain on the pitch throughout.

Ole must also be wishing he had a player of Rio's ilk as the need for a quality centre-back is of top priority.
