Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mourinho have aimed a dig at each other ahead of their super showdown on Sunday evening. The Tottenham manager had once said that finishing second in the league with Manchester United was one of the greatest achievements in his managerial career.
However, Solskjaer has rubbished all those claims, insisting that United can never be happy with a second-place finish.
When asked about whether finishing second in the Premier League with Manchester United counts as a major achievement for him, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, replied: “You can’t say that is an achievement. Our ambition is a lot more than second place.
“I said that when I wasn’t at the club – you can never be happy with that. Our ambition is to catch the team in front of us.”
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho had spoken a few years ago about how finishing second in the Premier League during the 2017-18 season with United was one of the biggest achievements of his career.
However, Solskjaer definitely doesn’t seem to agree with that, but he himself has much to do to ensure that the Red Devils can get back to the top of English football in the near future and win the league.
Solskjaer and Mourinho will face off today at White Hart Lane as the Red Devils aim to revenge their humiliating loss to the Spurs in October 2020.
