Solskjaer back sacked Lampard to bounce back; talks United title chances

Sacked Chelsea FC manager Frank Lampard has received the backing of his Manchester United Counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Lampard was sent packing by Chelsea on Monday with former PSG boss Thomas Tuchel set to be named as their new manager and according to Solskjaer, the Englishman will bounce back from the setback.

“I’m sure he’ll bounce back and have a good managerial career. They had just one bad spell and not long ago they were top of the league. It’s not many bad spells that they’ve had and I’m grateful for the patience shown in us because we’ve had two or three really bad spells of form. But we don’t know what goes on behind the scenes at clubs,” Solskjaer said in his presser ahead of their clash with Sheffield United.

On his club’s chances on the title, the Norwegian added: “Our form has come through the coaching and the work the players have done.

“We had a few difficult home games to start with and the circumstances in those games were hard. Now the form is good, the confidence is good and we’re in a good moment, which we’ve got to enjoy. We’re looking strong, which is a good place to be in. We looked at the squad, the situation we were in, we put a long-term plan in place.”

United who is on top of the league will be up against Sheffield on Wednesday before closing the month with a tie against Arsenal.
