REACTION AT OLD TRAFORD: Solskjaer "showed his teeth"!

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not feel any pressure despite the results that do not go to his or his players’ advantage.

Many thought that the Norwegian coach would soon become a former coach at “Old Trafford” when his team experienced a debacle at home against Liverpool with the result 5: 0.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still “survived”, but events that follow does not help him. Manchester United are entering a series of very difficult matches, such as the one against Tottenham on Saturday.

– We need a reaction. It is my job to keep the players in the right state of consciousness. I am responsible for the reaction, the result, the game. We did everything on the field that a football player should do, it is not just one thing, the state of consciousness, it is also the approach to the game, strategy, game plan, tactics, technical details. We had a good week and I feel that the guys are ready to give their best, as always. Last week did not go according to plan, we were not even close to our best – said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian referred to some information that has been circulating in the media throughout Europe in recent days.

– I am not one of those who read what is written on social networks, but Paul Pogba came into my office angry. We all expect to be criticized, that’s fine, the game wasn’t good enough, you expect to hear it from both sides, but we can’t accept when lies are spread about us. Paul came to me and told me what he put on social media. We are better than what they write about us. The culture is better here, the environment. When it comes to obvious lies, guys have to react and say what they have. All opinions and reports are fine, but you are not making up lies about the players or me – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added.

The coach of United pointed out that his players have a serious approach before the next matches.

– We were too open and too disorganized against a good team. You saw Tyson Fury, when he was knocked down on the floor a couple of times. It is amazing how calm and concentrated he is, even when he is on the floor. They count to six, seven, eight and he is ready to continue. Maybe we opened up too early and tried to sort it out. We had to be more concentrated, but also look at various things. You have to be open, direct. Communication must be direct – Ole Gunnar Solskjer underlined.
