Ole furious at fixture scheduling

Sat 07 November 2020 | 17:19

Despite the victory over Everton, Ole took his time to speak about the horrible fixture scheduling.

After losing against Turkish side Basaksehir on Wednesday night,

Manchester United

managed to beat

Everton

away from home. United are not doing great so far and this victory meant a lot to them.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

, Man United boss preferred to talk about the fixture scheduling instead of praising his players. Ole believes that they have set up the schedule to fail the teams.

"We were set up to fail," he told BT Sport. "I said to you before, when I talked to you about the kick-off time, it's set up the boys to fail.

"We got Luke Shaw injured today because we've been to Turkey, we've played loads of games this season already, and we've been to Turkey Wednesday night, [and] come Thursday morning we're back in, we're playing Saturday lunchtime kick-off. It's an absolute shambles and I can't praise the boys enough for that character they've shown.

"That's all I want to talk about today. Those boys deserve better than being thrown out here to fail today.

"Authorities set us up to fail. How can they set us up, after a Champions League game, Wednesday night, in Turkey, and set us a Saturday 12.30 kick-off?

"You've got

Liverpool

and

[Manchester] City

– fair play, they play against each other – played on Tuesday and they play on Sunday. Who's responsible? We've had enough of that. I've had enough.

"Players, this season, I said it yesterday, you have to understand how these players, in these times, how mentally draining, physically draining this is, and you set them up like this? We've lost Luke Shaw because of that.

"Set us up on a Sunday. There's absolutely no problem, there's an international break after. No argument whatsoever [about a Sunday match]. It's just a joke."
