Ahead of their Manchester derby on Saturday, Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that United as a club is still bigger than Man City, despite admitting that the latter is a better team.
On being asked if United is a bigger club than City, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Yeah”.
The Red Devils are currently 11 points behind the reigning champions Man City, who have finished ahead of their city rivals in each of the last 6 seasons.
Since their title-winning campaign in 2013, which saw Sir Alex Ferguson leave the club after more than two decades at the helm, Man City has won three Premier League titles.
Ole, however, said that they are going there to win.
“It’s a chance for us to challenge them and bridge that gap a little bit, so we’re going there to win. We’re going there to get a result, even though we know it’s going to be difficult,” MUTV quoted Solskjaer as saying.

The Norwegian further added that its all about ‘doing the talking on the pitch’.
“I don’t want to put any feelings into any other teams or managers. We might not
want them to be scared of us. We want them to be arrogant and confident,” he
“As a player, you don’t have to shout the loudest to throw the sucker punch. So
it’s not about shouting the loudest, it’s about doing the talking on the pitch,”
Manchester City will host Manchester United in the 179th Manchester Derby on Saturday.
