Manchester United 2021-22: What to expect from the Red Devils

Manchester United announced that Ole Gunnar Solskjær has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club till 2024.

England boss Gareth Southgate expressed concern over some of the defensive mistakes that were made by his side in the game against Kosovo in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
