Ole Gunnar: Manchester United need to lift a trophy

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reiterated the importance of his side winning silverware this season ahead of their Europa League clash. 

The Red Devils remain favourites for Europe's second-tier competition and could take a step towards achieving this when they host LASK Lanz on Wednesday night. 

Solskjaer's men lead 5-0 from the opening leg that was played in Austria in March, just before the coronavirus pandemic struck and halted all action. 

“I think it’s important and we’re always hungry to improve all the time. And we’re hungry to win. When you’re at Man United, there are two things that matter: improving and winning,"

"We want to lift a trophy, of course. The time that you do it is a great occasion for everyone, getting your hands on any trophy, and some of these need to get that feeling.”

Solskjaer further highlighted on his squad, with a number of players expected to be out for a while. 

“Axel and Luke will be out until the start of next season, out for this month for sure. Hopefully, they'll be ready to go at the start of September. Phil [Jones] has been training here, he's been not match-fit, but he's been getting closer, so maybe he can join in in Germany.

"We'll see how he progresses over the next few days. The youngsters coming in [to the squad] give us a bigger training group and hopefully, we can see the start of a career there.”

He also hinted at playing a largely unchanged side from the team that played in the first leg, with a number of his key players set to be rested.
