Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted it’s not exactly ‘uhuru’ yet, despite seeing his side defeat Tottenham at their own stadium on Saturday.
According to Solskjaer, Manchester United must repeat the performance in the 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on a consistent basis.
Asked if he thought the win would take off some of the pressure on him, the Norwegian 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 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.”
“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.
He added, “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.”
United moved up two positions to fifth on the Premier League table, and can get level on points with third-placed Manchester City with a win against them when we play them next.
