Latest Man Utd news from Solskjaer’s press conference


Morning Ole. Good to see you. Just wondering, last night we saw players take a knee and the referees as well before the matches, Project Restart. Just wondering what your thoughts are on the Black Lives Matter movement and whether your players, are you expecting them to do the same tomorrow?
“Well I think it has been an event in history that has changed people’s views and of course the movement now, I think we all know that this shouldn’t happen in 2020, what’s been happening and that players, Premier League teams that we all make a stand and say enough is enough, I think that is good. I don’t expect anything different from ours.”

There were two issues over players, in terms of their availability for this extended season. One of them you’ve sorted with Odion Ighalo, how has that been? And secondly, Angel Gomes, as far as we are aware his contract still expires at the end of the month. Will he be available for you in these coming games? Do you expect him to sign that contract extension?
“We’re delighted Odion is staying with us. We had a good conversation with his club and Odion’s made a great impact when he came, so that’s very pleasing. He gives us another option up front, he is a goalscorer and what he does in and around the dressing room as well is great. I hope he’s going to continue and finish off what he has started. With Angel, he is a top, top kid that we have had at the club for so many years. We’ve offered him a deal, hopefully he’ll take it. If not, I wish him all the best. Hopefully, from what I understand it’s not too far away, so if not we wish him all the best.”
