Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is pleased with the international break coming just at the right time as he feels it will give the United players time to recover from their latest defeat against rivals Manchester City.

The Norwegian is certain the break will clear the heads of his players and help them come back ready to fight for the club.

Speaking during a post-match press conference on Saturday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Players are human beings and when you lose a game of football there is no better remedy than winning a game and getting your confidence by winning a game.

“Hopefully the ones who go away do that and for us. We have to come out next time like a proper hurt animal and get back to what we know we can be and that is the only way to approach this and attack this situation.

“Yes the short answer is it [the international break] has come at a good time for us. As a group we have had a difficult spell and we’ve come through it but this [the Manchester City defeat] was a big step backwards.”

We are back in football action on Saturday, November 20, when Manchester United travel to face Watford in the Premier League and it’s an opportunity for the team to try to salvage our campaign.
