Midfielder Fred believes that Man Utd will successfully defend his position in the top 4 of the Premier League to attend the Champions League next season.
Fred is excited about Man Utd attending the Champions League next season
Man Utd is third in the Premier League. They need at least one draw at Leicester Stadium in the last round to win tickets to the Champions League. If Man Utd loses and Chelsea beat Wolves in the match at the same time, Fred and his teammates will lose interest.
The upcoming match is also the occasion for Fred’s teammate – center-back Harry Maguire – to meet the old club. Man Utd spent $ 97 million to recruit Maguire from Leicester in the summer of 2019. England midfielder immediately became a mainstay in the defense. In the first leg, he helped Man Utd defeat Leicester 1-0.
Regarding the opponent, Fred particularly noted striker Jamie Vardy – who is leading the race to the Premier League scorer with 23 goals.
Solskjaer is expected to gradually bring Man Utd back to the previous position
Currently, with the third place in the Premier League, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits the distance from Man Utd to the two leading teams is really far.
Man Utd is third in the Premier League. If they do not lose on the pitch of Leicester in the final round on Sunday 26/7, they will successfully defend the position and ticket to the Champions League – the biggest goal this season.
The progress of Man Utd is something that can be seen this season, even with an unbeaten period throughout 13 matches. However, it is also not really stable. Recently, former defender Gary Neville suggested that Man Utd need to buy three to four top players to improve the squad quality.
After the Premier League, Man Utd will return to the Europa League with the return leg of the round of 1/8. In the first leg, Solskjaer and his students won 5-0 at Lask. The tournament takes place from August 5 to August 21.
