Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hails Wolves as he makes self-deprecating joke
Wolverhampton Wanderers enjoyed a fantastic 2018/19 campaign which saw them finish just nine points behind Manchester United.
Wolves also enjoyed two big wins over the Red Devils last term in the league and Cup, with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer paying tribute to Nuno Espirito Santo’s men prior to the rematch between the two this evening.
Solskjaer even joked that he didn’t want to turn up at Molineux for the clash due to his poor history in the Black County.
“I almost thought about not coming. I’ve lost three times here. I thought I might let the other lads take care of it,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

Whilst those comments from Solskjaer in an interview with Sky Sports were more light-hearted, the United boss went on to also offer up some kind quotes on how Wolves, who enjoyed their best Premier League campaign last season, were actually better than their seventh-place finish suggested.
Solskjaer added: “They deserved more last season than finishing seventh. They have been strong for a while now.”
