Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Man United players that they will not be able to attend the summer tour if they are not physically fit.
Man United are expected to tour in Australia, Singapore and China in July. Their schedule may be interrupted if the Reds are forced to start the season from the second qualifying round of the Europa League.
Solskjaer has repeatedly expressed frustration about the fitness of the players since he took over as manager at Old Trafford since mid-December. After an impressive start with 14/17 matches, Manchester United failed to brake with only 2 wins in 11 matches after that. They were knocked out in the FA Cup and Champions League in a row and out of the Top 4 in the Premier League.
Solskjaer admits to need a miracle to help United win the Premier League title next season. However, he also felt that his players could improve more in the next season.
To do this, Solskjaer has asked players to get the best status before the start of the season on July 1. This is the time before the first friendly match with Perth Glory of Australia.
“The players have a lot of work to do in the summer,” Solskjaer said. “I hope they will be ready on July 1. We have more breaks than our competitors so we need to take advantage of this. Not a threat but anyone who is not ready on January 1 7 can stay and not travel with the whole team “.
Pep still slept well before the ‘final’ with Brighton
Coach Pep Guardiola said that he “didn’t feel a bit worried” when Man City entered the final day of the 2018 Premier League with the championship race still extremely intense.
Man City are still at the top of the standings with 1 more point than their direct competitor Liverpool. In the final round, the Blue Man will have to march to Brighton’s yard while Liverpool host Wolves at Anfield.
Everything can happen in the 38th round and Pep said his players are no longer under pressure in the championship race. He himself has the same feeling.
“I’m very happy, I don’t have any worries,” Pep revealed. “I slept like a boy. It was a dream, a privilege and I loved it. Concerns only appeared in the game against Liverpool in January. We were 7 points behind them and could lagged 10 points if lost. “
“Right now I don’t need to say anything to motivate the players. They all want to win the Premier League. What I see in the training sessions is they want to win.”
“The stories of the last few days are just about how to overcome Brighton, their defenses and their strengths and weaknesses. By the time we get into the game, we will play and play. That’s all, “he added.
