I’m very glad that I’ve got the players that I have here with us – Ole Solskjaer
Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted full faith in his squad to turn things around, despite the team losing three of their opening six games in the English Premier League.
After Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, it was reported that Roy Keane, the former manager of Manchester United said: “Ole will lose his job working with these players – that’s what is going to happen.”
Ole Solskjaer who further responded to Keane’s statement said “Roy has always been outspoken. I’m very glad that I’ve got the players that I have here with us”;
“We’ve got different jobs. Roy’s job is to give his opinion. I always listen to Roy but we move on here with a great group of players, a strong group of players. I’m sure we’ll see a response.”
Ole also speaking on Man Utd’s next face with Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League on Wednesday, insists he has full faith in his squad to turn things around.
Moreover, report revealed that when Ole was asked if the lack of home support is a major advantage for United, Solskjaer replied saying, “I think football now is really affected by the virus, of course and the environment is not as it normally is.
“Away games against any opposition… in Turkey you’ve got fanatic fans, passionate fans, enthusiastic fans and of course to have the home fans with you is an advantage. That is proven.”
United’s poor domestic form is in marked contrast to their impressive start to the Champions League this season.
