In another desperate attempt to hold on to a job he does not deserve, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed the much criticized bosses at Manchester United.
“I’m not sure if the players will get [hear] it, but I noticed, yeah,” Solskjaer told reporters when asked if he saw the fans mutin against the Glazers and Woodward. “As a club we’ve got to stick together, we’ve got to be united, we are a family.
“I can only say from when I’ve been here I’ve been backed by the owners, I’ve been backed by Ed and they’re supporting me, so for me, make sure they stick together.
“We are in all competitions. We are still in the EFL Cup, FA Cup, we’re fifth in the league, still challenging [for the top four], we’ve improved the position from last season, we’ve got Europa League – they [the fans] have just got to believe me when I say I feel we are doing loads of good things behind the scenes. We are going in the right direction.
“See the group today: the attitude, the work-rate, that’s the core of the group that’s going to go forward.”
Ole also used the moment to yet again praise the one true star he has in his team, Marcus Rashford.
“What an achievement to get to 200 games at his age,” Solskjaer said. “I don’t know how many he’s scored [in total], but that’s 19 this season.
“He’s absolutely top class to work with, a great kid. He wants to learn, improve and he knows how to keep his feet on the ground.
“Today he was carrying a few knocks, but there was no chance he was going to say to me before the game he didn’t want to play.
“He will become better, but he has everything to become a top-class player: attitude, skill, physique. I’m delighted I have three centre-forwards [Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood] scoring today [Saturday].”
