Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Friday that he will not settle for the point that would guarantee his side a return to the Champions League next season when the Red Devils travel to Leicester.
United sit third in the Premier League table going into the final day of the season, but defeat at the King Power on Sunday would see them fall to fifth should Chelsea avoid losing at home to Wolves.
Solskjaer’s men have overturned an eight-point deficit to Leicester in eight games since English football’s return from a three-month hiatus, but have looked low on energy in recent games as they crashed out of the FA Cup to Chelsea last weekend and were held 1-1 at home by West Ham on Wednesday.
However, the Norwegian insists he is still delighted with the progress that has been made this season with his side on a 13-match unbeaten run in the league stretching back to January.
A return to the Champions League is vital for the health of United’s finances, but they will have a second chance even if they lose at Leicester should they win the Europa League when it returns next month.
