“It’s been great coming back,
“ Ole told us last week. ”Obviously the boys have worked hard and I think they would feel like it isn’t just over halfway through the first week – I think they will feel like it’s been a couple of weeks because they have grafted and done well.”
With the Premier League season starting on 11 August, Solskjaer knows his team must not waste time.
“We’ve got six weeks until the league starts so we can’t take it easy,
“ he stated. ”They've all had their individual programmes and are in good shape from day one, so we’ve put them through their paces.
