With Liverpool having secured the Premier League title in a stunning fashion this campaign, other clubs have triggered the final hustle to grab the respective spots below them in the table.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the man held responsible for the current 13-games unbeaten streak of Manchester United has appreciated the marvellous efforts of Jurgen Klopp and his lads, while admitting that it hurts him to see another club lifting the silverware.

However, the Norwegian gaffer has also disclosed that he understands it’s a tough league to compete in and reproducing the level of dominance displayed by Sir Alex Fergusen in the past at United would be virtually infeasible.

“Any team that wins the championship and a Premier League deserve it and deserve credit. It’s a hard league to win, well done to Jurgen and his players”, the United gaffer stated.

“Every time you see anyone else lift the trophy it hurts, I reckon that’s the feeling everyone associated with Man United – players, supporters – we want to get back to winning ways and that’s our challenge.

“The run of titles that we won under Sir Alex, I don’t think that’s going to be easy for anyone to emulate or copy. Sir Alex was a master of staying at the top so, for me, our challenge is to make sure we don’t go, say, 26 years until the next time we win it or more.

“We’re going to do everything we can to shorten the distance or even go past them of course.”

Although it remains true that the Mancunian club is still way below their prime standards, the key additions made in the winter of 2020 have proved to be effective for the Old Trafford outfit. Accordingly, the form they have been portraying since January is showing strong hints of a revival.
