Solskjaer Believes FA Cup Can Be Catalyst For SuccessFlying Pig
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said during today’s press conference that winning the FA Cup could be the catalyst his Manchester United side need to springboard into a period of success at the club. Manchester United play Norwich City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday 27th June 2020 at Carrow Road.
Manchester United’s last trophy winning season was 3 years ago having won the League Cup and Europa League in 2017 under then manager Jose Mourinho. You have to go back tot season before that for United’s last FA Cup win under the quickly departed Dutchman Louis Van Gaal.
Speaking at the pre match presser today for the Norwich game Solskjaer said: “The FA Cup is a fantastic tournament and it’s a fantastic final to play a part in. It’s a fantastic trophy to lift. Our team now is a new team, and to get our hands on the first trophy and to win a first title would be fantastic, and hopefully a catalyst for things to come.”
Solskjaer Continued “The FA Cup is fantastic, when I was a young boy back home, it was always the last game and the climax of the season. It was a game to look forward to and broadcast live in Norway. That goal against Liverpool was probably the best moment in the FA Cup for me, apart from of course, when you walk out at old Wembley. That was a proud moment for me, and my dad was in the stands.”
“I’ve lifted it twice as a player, so hopefully I can get a chance to walk out at Wembley again. I’m not sure if the youngsters now really understand how much it means. But I think our players have certainly realised.”
Solskjaer’s Man Utd side go into Saturday’s FA Cup Quarter-Final in fine form on the back of an impressive display against Sheffield United in the League. Do you think the Red devils have what it takes to make it all the way and lift the trophy?
