Solskjaer Fires Jibe At Mourinho?

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seemingly fired a little dig at Jose Mourinho regarding the Portuguese tactician's previous remarks about finishing second.

In January 2019, Mourinho claimed that finishing second with the Red Devils in the 2017/18 campaign was one of his best achievements as a manager.

United are on course to finish second in the Premier League this season, but the Norwegian has insisted this is not an achievement.

"The competition now is a lot harder than when I was a player. Three, four, maybe five teams that can challenge for the top two positions," Solskjaer said ahead of the Red Devils' Premier League match against Fulham on Tuesday evening, per Manchester Evening News.

"For the last few years they have been taken by the same two teams, and for us to go into them and divide them it's good, it's a good performance, but we can't say it's an achievement, it's not an achievement.

"We've taken steps as a team but we're not where we want to be, we know we have some deficiencies, as a group there's parts of the game that we need to improve on, but I've felt we've made strides in most places and I've been very pleased with the players, and I've got to say I've been impressed by them but we want to take the next step as well."
