​Man Utd manager Solskjaer evades question on European Super League

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would not be drawn on the recent news of a European Super League.

The Red Devils are among a total of 12 clubs, including the so called "top six" from the Premier League, that are forming a breakaway league.

The Super League includes United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham, along with European powerhouses AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Inter Milan.

When asked about the news of the breakaway league after his team's 3-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League, Solskjaer was evasive.

"I am dealing with the news this afternoon, the speculation." Solskjaer said.

"I don't think it is for me to comment on now. We just have to wait and see what happens.

"As I have said, I have seen the speculation or news this afternoon. I can't comment. It is an issue for the clubs to comment on."

Solskjaer had earlier said on Sky Sports: "I've seen this morning the news about the speculation, so I can't really say too much. My focus has been on this game.

"I haven't looked into [the details], I've just been focusing on this game. I need to sit down and see what it is. I've not seen any, I don't know all the ins and outs, I need to find out and then the clubs can issue a comment."
