Physically impossible - Solskjaer slams fixture schedule

Fri 07 May 2021 | 5:35

After last night's game in Italy and reaching the Europa League final, Manchester United must return to England to play three games in 5 days, which brings Solskjaer disappointment.

Manchester United must now return for a restless run of three Premier League games in five days. Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Manchester United's fixture schedule would be physically impossible for his players.

"

It's unheard of,"

he told BT Sport. "

[The decision] was made by people who have never played football at this level. It's physically impossible for the players

.

"We have not been dealt a good hand. We are going to need everyone for these four games. It's a short turnaround, but we have to be ready."

Manchester United

had lost their previous four semi-finals under Solskjaer, and last night they needed

Cavani

's goals and ten saves from

David de Gea

to oust

Roma

.

"

It feels good to be in the final

," said Solskjaer.

"We played one very, very good half at Old Trafford, which has taken us through. I'm disappointed we lost, especially the way we played in the second half.

"It could easily have been 8-6 to them. It was a strange game. We kept giving them the ball but luckily we have one of the best keepers in the world. We are in the final and are looking forward to May 26."

Harry Maguire

believed United gave up too many chances last night and was full of praise for Cavani's scoring touch.

"I

t's a great achievement to get to the final,

" he said. "

We didn't win the game and that's disappointing but we did the hard work in the first leg

.

"We started the game a bit edgy. It was end to end like basketball and we gave them too many chances in the second half.

"Now we've got to go to the final and win it. Edinson scored two great goals and his movement and work rate without the ball is excellent.

"His second goal is typical of him and what he has done throughout his career."
