Man Utd manager Solskjaer: I'll have say on transfers

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

Darren Fletcher has strongly criticised Paul Pogba in the wake of Jose Mourinho's sacking as Manchester United manager, insisting the France star "needs a kick up the backside". Solskjaer goes way back with Pogba, having coached him during their respective first spells at United, so at least he has a head start in knowing what makes the midfielder tick. "My job now is to do as well as I can and move the club forward as well as I can". "Maybe I am not going to rotate".

"When a young manager like Solskjaer has this chance it is because the club decides he can do it".

"He (Solskjaer) has great players there, I bet he's glad he's in their dressing room". Mourinho was even forced to deny reports last month that Sanchez was seeking an exit from Old Trafford.

Solskjaer inherits a disjointed, top-heavy squad.

The Norwegian, who was the hero on one of the club's most famous nights when got the victor in stoppage time as United completed a 2-1 comeback triumph over Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final, said he would relish his time in charge.

"I accept everything. I accept the rumours when they're positive, when they're negative".

"My job is to help the players and make them grasp the opportunity", he told a news conference. "I had that at Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers and you can't really win, you have to leave", Warnock added. It's about us though, not the opposition.

"We just want to see them play the football they can do".

Brazilian midfielders Andreas Pereira and Fred - a £50 million (US$63.2 million, HK$495 million) summer signing who has yet to justify that price tag - could also come in from the cold.

"We have to rotate". "They all want to be part of Man United". Grab your chance when you get it. "Everyone will get their chance". I'm good at controlling the emotion, so I won't be that emotional. It's about man management.

"The players haven't been good enough", Scholes said.

"The boss [SAF] will always be the best at that".

"I was one of his biggest advocates 2 & half years ago when he joined the club & felt he stabilised #mufc when we needed it..." I'm a different personality.

"I do think he is the person who is the outstanding candidate".

For me, I want Solskjaer to stay at United and Pochettino to stay at Spurs.
