Ole Gunnar believes the United players need a reality check after 5 defeats in 7 games.
He said: “I’ve learnt a lot about them over the months I’ve been here. Most of them have really impressed me in their attitude.”
“Of course there are some who need to get a reality check on where they’re at. But most of them know they can improve if they keep working as they do.”
“I’ve spoken to individuals and they know. Anthony is one I’ve spoken to. I’ve spoken to all of them individually about what we expect from them.”
“Anthony has got massive talent, he has signed a new contract, he knows we believe in him. Just keep on working. Anyone who plays for Manchester United has to deliver to stay in the squad and the team.”
Anthony is no different to Rashy [Marcus Rashford], Rom [Romelu Lukaku], Alexis [Sanchez] or the many forwards we have to choose from.
“That’s the great thing about it now – it’s down to the players and the ownership they take coming back to pre-season.”
“I’ve been speaking to the club and we know we have to be realistic.
“We know there is a job to be done, there is no quick fix. It’s not like we can buy seven players and suddenly we are in the right shape. We are where we are and you have to take it step by step.
“Of course there will be signings made in the summer. I know there has been loads of criticism. I don’t know if all these critics know what is happening.
