Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær believes that his team is close to the quality of Europe’s top teams. His side have already beaten three out of the four semi finalist this season i.e Manchester City, Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain respectively. Hence he believes that they are slowly closing the gap.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Manchester United are “not a million miles away” from the best teams in Europe.

The Manchester United coach earlier spoke about the progress this season, with his side sitting second in the Premier League. Moreover they are also in the semi finals of the UEFA Europa League.

“The reality is, we are in the Europa League and they are in the Champions League, that is the reality – but when you sit and watch the games and you know how well you’ve done against these teams, you know we are not a million miles away,”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

“It is about consistency. It’s sometimes little details go against you, fine margins go against you, we would love to have been going through the group stage. I felt we had done enough at one point but we just couldn’t get it over line.

“Now it’s about improving again and taking inspiration from good performances against them and learning from the bad performances and results we have had.”
