Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he was never a fan of the concept of the European Super League. He said he was happy that the fans disapproved the competition and voiced their anger. He maintained that he has a good working relationship with the Glazers.
Manchester United was one of the 12 founding members of the now collapsed European Super League. The competition was then canceled as all six of the Premier League clubs withdrew in quick succession. Joel Glazer named the Super League vice-chairman apologized for a day after they withdrew from the competition.
“I’m very happy that the fans have voiced their opinion and that we’ve listened to them,” Solskjaer said. “In a strange sort of way it’s brought the football pyramid or community together and I think that’s important and I’m very happy. I’m a supporter myself, and there’ll be a day that I’ll come back and watch Man United and I want to watch a team even with a fear of failure.”
“That’s what I thought about it. I didn’t like the concept anyway because it has to be on sporting merit. I want to earn the right to play in Europe.” he added. “I’m very happy that all the clubs that have admitted their mistake, that this was a bad idea and the way that it came out as well.”
“You know what I’ve said about the Super League and I’m so happy that all the owners, all the clubs involved agreed that this was a mistake.” Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said when asked whether the Glazers were the right owners to take the club forward. “I’ve always had a good working relationship with the club and the owners. Of course behind the walls of the building we speak, they listened to my opinions and we’re working to move Man United forward, of course.”
