Pogba and Bruno of MU did not kick for Europa League this reason

Manchester Evening News revealed, coach Solskjaer is considering putting away all the pillars of MU at home in the campaign to conquer the Europa League.

Although ending the Premier League with the third place in the Champions League, the 2019/20 season of MU has not ended because they still have the Europa League ahead of them. The second most prestigious European club arena will return from August 5 and end on August 22.

MU will give Pogba and Bruno a rest

Under the new rules, the knockout matches only take place in 1 round. Along with Sevilla, Wolves, or Inter, “Red Devils” are the leading candidates for the throne. They are also full of chances to reach the quarter-finals thanks to a 5-0 victory over LASK in the first round of the away round 1/8.

However, according to a source from Manchester Evening News, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is seriously considering his intention not to let key players like Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba play in the Europa League.

Due to the schedule of the 2019/20 season affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the English Premier League 2020/21 will start on September 12, which is only 21 days after the Europa League final. This means that MU has too little time to prepare for the new season if it progresses to the final match.

In case of defeating LASK in the second leg (6/8), MU can only rest for 5 days before entering the quarter-finals against the winning team in the Copenhagen/Istanbul Basaksehir pair (August 11). On August 17, two semi-finals will take place and the final will also be held 5 days later.

Solskjaer decided to keep the starting line-up of Premier League final

Due to pressure of achievement, Solskjaer decided to keep the starting line-up during the final stages of the Premier League, which made the stars have no time to rest. Center-back Harry Maguire and midfielder Bruno Fernandes played 11 matches/37 days, of which Bruno played 1046 minutes, Maguire did not even take a minute. Victor Lindelof, Anthony Martial, or Marcus Rashford are also the main players during the last 9 rounds.

In the 2020/21 season, MU set great ambitions, even thinking of competing for the Premier League title and going far in the Champions League. More than ever, Solskjaer needs a break long enough to complete the personnel plan.
