Could Man United contend for the title?
Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has claimed the club could contend for the Premier League title next season under Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
The Red Devils have rescued their season since sacking Jose Mourinho back in December.
The atmosphere at Manchester United had become somewhat toxic and the decision was made to change it up.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær came in as caretaker boss and since then has exceeded expectations.
The Norwegian is still unbeaten as Manchester United boss having won seven games and drawn one.
Now, people are speaking about what United could do next season, despite Solskjær’s future still being up in the air.
‘We will challenge for the title next season if we carry on how we are now’
One of those talking about what they can do is Jesse Lingard.
The forward has claimed that should United carry on the way they are, they will be title contenders next season.
‘Solskjaer and Mike Phelan have brought back the old school Manchester United,’ he explained to the Mail.
‘They know the league and the club inside out so to pass that on and get us playing how we are has been perfect.
‘Solskjaer is doing very well. Nobody can fault him. He has taken a lot on but he already knew what he was doing when he came in. He got the players backing him straight away.
‘He told us there are big expectations and pressure at this club but we have to deal with it and play like a real United team.
‘We will challenge for the title next season if we carry on how we are now.
‘We’re back to basics and winning games by grinding out results or scoring a lot of goals. As long as we’re winning games that’s all that matters.’
