Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: United to challenge champions Man City

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer targets summer of recruitment ahead of taking challenge to Premier League champions Manchester City next season; United’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester confirms City’s third title in four seasons; Leicester climb to third with first Old Trafford win since 1998

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed plans are afoot for Manchester United to strengthen before trying to hit the benchmark set by Premier League champions Manchester City.

City’s third title in four seasons was confirmed on Tuesday by Leicester’s first Old Trafford win since 1998, sealed by goals from Luke Thomas and Caglar Soyuncu.

Solskjaer conceded playing a role in City’s coronation was less than ideal but praised United’s efforts for pushing their rivals as far as they did and set his sights on recruiting this summer before mounting a stronger title challenge next term.

“First of all congratulations to Manchester City for winning the league, very worthy champions, we’ve got to hold our hands up,” the United boss said. “They have been lauded, and rightly so, as one of the best teams that have been in the Premier League, they have shown where the bar is.

“That is where we want to be. We are not there yet; they have put the bar where it is and it’s up to us now to take the next step. That’s a long process, what know what we want to do.
