Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has slammed the powers that be over the fixture schedule that will see Manchester United play four games in seven days.
Following the game in Roma on Thursday, United are due to face Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon, before they host Leicester in a huge top four clash on Tuesday.
That will be followed just two days later by the rearranged clash with rivals Liverpool, which was due to take place last Sunday before protests postponed the game.
And following the decision to push it back by just 11 days, Solskjaer admitted that he was far from pleased with the coming week and the impacts it will have on his players.
“It’s unheard of,” he said of the fixture schedule. “It’s made by people who’ve never played football at this level.
“Physically impossible for the players to do it after being here – doing Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday is impossible.
“We’ve not been dealt a good hand, but we’ll play it as well as we can.”
Solskjaer doesn’t have too many injury concerns to worry about, and insists that each and every player will need to stand up and be counted over the next seven days.
He added: “We’re gonna need everyone in these four games and we’ve just got to see how everyone is Sunday morning, we play here and then 2pm on Sunday, so that’s a short turnaround, but we’ll have to be ready and that’s just how it is.”
Playing Villarreal instead of Arsenal in the Europa League final will impact United’s preparations ahead the clash in Gdansk on May 26, and Solskjaer insists that his preparations will be top notch as he looks to win his first piece of silverware in the Old Trafford hot seat.

"We've got to start analysing,” the Norwegian went on. “Of course, we've watched them a little bit now, we know a little bit about them.
“We're ready for a final, it's a one-off, second leg in a semis is always difficult, but in a final, anything can happen. But we'll prepare well."
