Solskjaer reveals the players that won’t play for Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dismissed talks of him being under pressure and claims the win over Spurs is more about the team than just him.

The Norwegian stated that the improvement of the team is far more important than the pressure that comes with being manager of Manchester United.

He also admitted that he’s only committed to fielding players that will give their all for the club.

When asked about if the pressure will reduce after the 3-0 win over Tottenham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “This is not about me. It’s about us improving as a group together.

“If [the players] don’t give everything to play for Man United, they won’t play. It’s as simple as that.

“You know you’re under pressure from day one when you walk in here.

“This past week has been a difficult one for the players, the fans haven’t been happy, but this is one game. It’s the next one now, Atalanta.”

The Norwegian continued: “For me, there are so many things out there, horrible things, that you have to look at yourself and be happy that you are where you are and have the responsibility that you have.

“You have to enjoy it. It would have been a different interview [if we hadn’t won] and a different atmosphere in the dressing room, but that’s football.

“When you win, everyone’s up, you feel good, but when you lose, you’re so down. But you’ve got to wake up the next morning and look forward to the next game.

“We need consistency. We need that type of performance again, and again, and again.”

The team returned back to winning ways with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford sealing a 3-0 win over Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
