Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms club will back any call to cut short season due to safety over coronavirus – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED will back any plans to cancel the rest of the season because of coronavirus.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side face LASK behind closed doors in the Europa League last 16 tonight, under orders from the Austrian government.

Boss Solskjaer admitted: “I would understand if this competition or the Premier League wasn’t played out, under the circumstances.

“Football is for the fans and the game should always be for them. But the main concern must always be the health of the public and whatever decision is made, we’ll back.

“We are playing this game behind closed doors but we might get a different message about the tournament next week.

“We just have to do what we are told and if the authorities think we should go and get on with it, then we do our job.

“The players are focused and concentrating on the job but these are difficult circumstances, not just for football but the whole of society.”

United’s England striker Marcus Rashford, who is out with a back injury, tweeted: “The safety and well-being of our fans has to come first. Without you, we’re nothing.”
