Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has finished the 2019/20 campaign at a high level after the restart after the soccer stoppage. That earned him finish third in the table and secure his place in the next Champions League.
“United look like they will be the next team to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City of this world,” said the former Red Devils player for Premier League Productions. “Those teams have been doing well for a long time and have been a long way from the others, but United have been in shape in the last 20 games and they are up to the task,” he added.
Owen commented that he noticed positive things about the team on the last day of the Premier, where they got their ticket to the Champions League after beating Leicester.
“I think a sign was when they won in Leicester in the last game. Yes, there were some celebrations, yes there were handshakes and everything else, but there were no crazy celebrations, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was calm, as if saying ‘this is something normal, we are Manchester United “, he explained.
“Getting in the top four should be normal for United. They are not going to rest now. They are playing particularly well, but they still need to improve a bit more before they can compete for top honors,” he closed.
