“If you want to take up the challenge with Manchester City we need to strengthen our squad,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told BT Sport after the loss.
“Congratulations to them. They have had a fantastic season. I am very pleased with my boys that have made it to the last 10 days with a Man City side ahead of us that are lauded as the best in Europe.
“We want to take the next step and it might be that we need a couple more to strengthen the squad. The whole season has given us optimism and room for optimism but also improvement.
“We have pushed City all the way, until 10-12 days left in the season and it is a very good achievement because they are a very good team. They are very worthy champions. I have to say congratulations because they have played some fantastic stuff this season.”
Meanwhile, The Glazers have recently apologized to the Manchester United fans following a wave of protests although it remains to be seen whether the Americans will invest in the squad in the coming months.
