Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says winning the FA Cup could be a catalyst for further success as Manchester United prepare to face Norwich in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
United have not won a trophy since lifting the League Cup and Europa League in 2017, and witnessed rivals Liverpool claim their first Premier League title on Thursday night.
However, Solskjaer has led United on a 13-match unbeaten run in all competitions and four points from their first two matches since lockdown – as well as the return to fitness of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford – has stoked optimism at Old Trafford.
United go into their game at Carrow Road as strong favourites, and Solskjaer said: “The FA Cup is a fantastic tournament and it’s a fantastic final to play a part in. It’s a fantastic trophy to lift.
“Our team now is a new team, and to get our hands on the first trophy and to win a first title would be fantastic, and hopefully a catalyst for things to come.”
