Solskjaer on Covid: “End the Season Now and Crown a Champion”


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called for an immediate end to the season and crowning of a champion as cases of Covid-19 soar across the UK. The Norwegian denies being motivated by UTD’s position at the top of the table.


Solskjaer“Football isn’t important right now,” Solskjaer told Soccer on Sunday. “Just end the league and hand whoever is top the title. City, Liverpool — whoever. I haven’t checked the table, to be fair. But move fast, would be my message to the Premier League. Do it today, or at the very latest, Saturday.”

“No,” said the former striker, when asked if the season might instead be voided. “That’s the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard. We have an old saying in Norway, ‘Ikke ugyldiggjøre sesongen’. There isn’t an exact translation, but it basically means don’t void the season.”

“I’m serious, fuck off with your voiding,” added Solskjaer, wide-eyed and unblinking.
