Solskjaer points to two attributes behind Man Utd resurgence

Date published: Sunday 26th July 2020 7:20 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pinpointed a pair of attributes instrumental i their charge into the top four, and described what aspect of the club is now much better than in recent history. The Red Devils surged in the second half of the season, storming up the table to secure a third place finish.A finish inside the top three seemed a distant fantasy prior to Christmas, but the Norwegian head honcho was able to mastermind a series of fearsome attacking displays that propelled them up the ladder.

Moyes in stern defence of Man Utd record; pinpoints Solskjaer difference

Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 2:10 West Ham boss David Moyes says the difference between his and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s respective reigns at Manchester United is the backing given by the club. Moyes took over at Old Trafford in 2013 after being recommended by outgoing stalwart Sir Alex Ferguson. However, Moyes could not maintain the Red Devils‘ progress and was sacked by the club 10 months into his six-year contract. Fast forward three further managerial appointments and, after similarly shaky patches of form, Solskjaer’s work is beginning to bear fruit. United’s push for a Champions League finish is in their own hands and they could win the Europa League. However, first up is the Premier League clash with Moyes’ Wes...

Solskjaer in no mood to talk as he bluntly shuts down De Gea probe

Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 11:01 Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to open up after being questioned on David de Gea’s recent troubles in goal. De Gea’s form has been called into question ever since he signed a new long-term contract in September. However, he was thrust into the spotlight again on Sunday, after his error played a part in United’s exit from the FA Cup. The Spaniard failed to keep out Mason Mount’s low shot from the edge of the area. Asked how the goalkeeper will cope with his latest setback, Solskjaer was in no mood to give a detailed answer during his pre-match press conference on Tuesday. “This is not going to become a David De Gea press conference,” the manager said. “We’re jus...

Solskjaer mentions ‘fact’ that hurt Man Utd chances; speaks on De Gea

Date published: Sunday 19th July 2020 9:00 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted at a possible reason behind Man Utd’s struggles against Chelsea, and appeared to offer backing to David De Gea despite admitting it was an error that should never be made. The Red Devils entered the contest with hopes high of advancing to the FA Cup final, but were hamstrung by a series of errors that typified a sloppy all-round performance.Hinting at why his side produced such an underwhelming display, Solskjaer said: “Of course coming in at half time with the goal after that long lay off was a big blow for us. We lost concentration and that was disappointing. “Chelsea had an extra 48 hours, that’s just a fact but it’s no excuse, I can’t use excuses. “I...

Marcus Rashford reveals secret of Man Utd’s improved potency | teamtalk.com

Marcus Rashford has revealed that Manchester United have been working hard on their build-up play in and around the box and says that is why they are scoring so many goals. United have scored 21 goals since the Premier League returned, including another two at Selhurst Park in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Thursday. Marcus Rashford opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time and he also produced a wonderful piece of skill to help Anthony Martial wrap up the contest late on. It ensured the Red Devils moved back level on points with fourth-placed Leicester, who were able to get the better of Sheffield United earlier in the day. “I am trying to be clever inside the box and find half a yard to get a shot off,” Rashford told BT Sport. “It’s the pattern of play that we d...

Solskjaer rages at having to ‘pick up the pieces’ of ‘unfair’ schedule | teamtalk.com

Date published: Thursday 16th July 2020 8:37 Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it is unfair that Chelsea have an extra two days to prepare for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final. Solskajer has yet to seal silverware during his time in the Old Trafford dugout after several trophies as a United player. United are the bookmakers’ favourites to lift next month’s Europa League, when they could complete a double if they can make it past Chelsea and go on to win the FA Cup. But Solskjaer’s side head into Sunday’s Wembley semi-final at a disadvantage due to the scheduling. Chelsea played Sheffield United on Saturday and won 1-0 against relegated Norwich on Tuesday. United, meanwhile, played Monday’s 2-2 draw with Southampto...

Solskjaer reveals how ‘quality’ Martial has dispelled curious Man Utd myth

Date published: Wednesday 15th July 2020 11:07 Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says striker Anthony Martial’s improvement has banished suggestions of his forwards not working hard enough. Solskjaer referred to “talks” he had heard last season suggesting his attackers were not “active” enough.

Solskjaer told Wednesday’s press conference of Martial’s progress: “”He’s definitely developing and improving and he’s enjoying his footb...

Solskjaer will listen to offers for unwanted Man Utd sextet

Date published: Wednesday 15th July 2020 9:06 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to bolster his summer transfer kitty by offloading as many as six players at Manchester United this summer, according to a report. The Telegraph insist that Solskjaer’s priority is to sign a right-sided forward and Jadon Sancho remains their number one target, but with Borussia Dortmund playing hardball over the fee United are playing a waiting game.

But Solskjaer knows he may have to raise some funds by way of player sales after the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Last summer the arrivals of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James were part...

Solskjaer warned Man Utd rebuild could fail without key transfer rethink

Date published: Monday 13th July 2020 1:05 Ian Wright says Manchester United may need to bring in a new left-back, with Luke Shaw struggling to fulfil the potential he once showed.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to replace the outgoing Marcos Rojo, with Nathan Ake and Tyrone Mings allegedly on his radar. Elsewhere, reports have heavily linked Jadon Sancho with a move, but his price tag could be more than £100million. And while United boss Solskjaer has said he has doubts over his transfer budget, Wright believes only “the best” signings will continue the club’s recent upward trend. And, contrary to...
