It’s physically impossible for the players – Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has passed judgment on football authorities for Manchester United’s tight schedule after his side advanced to the Europa League final on Thursday evening.

The ‘Red Devils’ will play Villarreal in the final on May 26 after beating AS Roma 8-5 on aggregate despite losing 3-2 in their semifinal second leg at the Stadio Olimpico.

Solskjaer called Man United’s punishing schedule “physically impossible”.

“It’s unheard of. It’s made by people who have never played football at this level,” raged Solskjaer to BT Sport.

“It’s physically impossible for the players. We have not been dealt a good hand. We are going to need everyone for these four games. It’s a short turnaround but we have to be ready.”

The Manchester-based side will play four Premier League fixtures in 10 days.

On Sunday they travel to Aston Villa and by next Thursday they will have hosted Liverpool and Leicester, the visit of Fulham coming the following Tuesday.

The Norwegian mentor was also unhappy about his side’s display on Thursday,

“Very, very poor, but we’re in the final,” he said.

“I’m disappointed we lost, especially the way we played in the second half.

“It could easily have been 8-6 to them. It was a strange game. We kept giving them the ball but luckily we have one of the best keepers in the world. We are in the final and are looking forward to May 26.”
