Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been encouraged by Manchester United’s “camaraderie” in training and is confident his squad will have the right mentality when the Premier League season restarts.
United are due to face Tottenham away on June 19 – live on Sky Sports – in their first match since beating LASK 5-0 in the Europa League on March 12.
The victory in Austria stretched United’s unbeaten run to 11 matches and Solskjaer is confident they can continue where they left off before football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The first game is two weeks away so we need to step up the training and get an edge to our game again,” the United boss told the club’s official website.
“Everyone knows that we will have to be at our best, have to be focused against Tottenham.
“We know it’s a big game for everyone. We had Chelsea when we started the league this season so I’m confident that our players can go into the Tottenham game with that mentality of going there to play a very good game of football.
“Training has been about recapping what we did well, tweaking maybe one or two things and looking at some new ideas, but hopefully we can see a lot of what we saw towards the end before the lockdown.”
