Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he will not be satisfied with the club finishing in the top four this season.
United were 11 points adrift of the final Champions League spot when Solskjaer was appointed as caretaker in December. Having won eight games in a row – six of those coming in the league – they could move level on points with Chelsea in fourth with a win at home against Burnley on Tuesday night.
They are also through to the fifth round of the FA Cup, where they will face Chelsea, while they take on French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16.
Despite the growing list of tough fixtures in February, United’s caretaker manager is demanding his team challenge for a top three finish as well as win silverware come May.
“I’ve been really impressed with the players, their desire and the team spirit. That goes a long way.
“We need to use these months to be ready for the challenge next year, we came second last year, we wanted to be challenging for the top place but it didn’t happen.
“It’s about reorganising and just starting next season to be ready to challenge and get more points.”
