Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sends clear message to Man United players
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that he has a "quality" squad at his disposal after being appointed as Man United interim boss
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that he has a “quality” squad at his disposal after having been appointed as Manchester United boss until the end of the season.
Solskjaer has been put in interim charge of the Red Devils after they opted to sack Jose Mourinho on Tuesday following the club’s dismal start to the new campaign.
Mourinho was relieved of his duties last week after Manchester United slumped to their worst start to a season in 28 years.
Solskjaer is the man the Red Devils have turned to as he looks to try and steer Manchester United out of troubled water and into the top four before the season is out.
His first game in charge will be the Premier League trip to Cardiff City in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Much has been made about the ability of the players in the Manchester United squad, but Solskjaer feels that he has some top quality talent at his disposal.
Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Solskjaer said: “The amount of games coming up is no problem because we’ve got an amazing squad, we’ve got 23-24 players.
“They are all quality and they’ll all get a chance now with the amount of games coming up. They’ve got a chance to show they are Man United players.”
He continued: “We’ve got a great set-up at the club with all of the analysts here.
“When I came in this morning [Thursday], they were watching Cardiff [videos]. But it’s not just about the opposition – it’s about us, it’s about Man United, it’s about our players knowing what they can do. We want to see them express themselves.”
Manchester United are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table.
The Red Devils will be aiming to at least break back into the top four before the end of the season as they look to try and qualify for next season’s Champions League.
