Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to get a point against Leicester City to ensure Champions League qualification and an extra £100 million for United.

Manchester United seemed lost under Jose Mourinho despite winning the Europa League title. Their second-place finish showed they were far behind the curve.

The Special One has left since and a similar figure is leading the club. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed the club and their approach.

The Red Devils are on the brink of Champions League qualification and a humble Solskjaer wants his side to deliver.

In a cryptic manner, the Norwegian said that their final fixture against Leicester City is another step of a journey they are on.

“This is a journey for this team and this is one extra step on the journey for this team,” said Solskjaer in a pre-match press conference.

“We’ve come a long way mentally, we’ve shown more robustness and resilience, when we lost the first goal in games.

“We’ve also shown the heights when everything’s flowing, which you can’t expect every time. I’m delighted with how the development looks.

“When you play football games and you win, you get good results, it’s enjoyable and you build momentum. Then you find one or two bumps along the way.

“So it’s fantastic to see we’re growing as a team and a squad and it’s the last game of the season and be positive.”

Manchester United need a point to ensure Champions League qualification, while Leicester City will need a win to make their place.
