Knallhard Solskjær: – Not my job to make them happy:
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær met the press this morning before Saturday’s league meeting with Brighton.
The Reds are out to get up after the heinous 1-3 loss at home against Crystal Palace in the previous series round.
– It has been a good week, some of the players have trained well. They played well against Luton. Last week was a disappointment, says Solskjær.
– We had a bad start last week, and want to get up, he continues.
Solskjær was also tough when he was asked if he should keep players like Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo happy – players who do not get as much playing time.
– Players are happy when they play well and win matches, so am I. It’s not my job to make them happy, it’s my job to get results. They have to work hard and be ready when asked, says Solskjær.
He also will not talk about possible transitions until the transition window closes.
– I am very happy with my player. If anything happens, players in or out, I will inform you. This is football, we can not predict too much. We’re working to get better, I’m just focusing on the fight, I can ‘t think of anything else. We need three points in this match and then we can talk about it later, says Solskjær.
One player who has been linked out is midfielder Chris Smalling, who was on loan at Roma last season.
– Let’s see what happens, says Solskjær about a possible sale.
The season is also overshadowed by the corona virus, which is once again ravaging Europe. It also has something to do with the finances of English clubs. Spectators also do not get into the matches, which weakens the clubs financially.
– The situation we are in, with the virus and everything, it is so difficult to predict what will happen. Several are infected and the fans are not allowed to enter. It is worse for football, and society in general. Yes, I’m worried about teams in lower divisions, of course we are, but Premier League clubs are also losing money. Hopefully we can get back to normal and we do not lose too many clubs. We need local clubs, it is not a good situation to be in, says Solskjær.
Brighton – Manchester United is played on Saturday 13.30.
OGS pretty brutal on keeping Romero, Rojo etc happy: “Not my job to keep them happy, my job to pick teams to get results. Up to them to be fit and perform when called upon.”
