Ole Gunnar Solskjær is not surprised by the statements made by Manchester United’s club director.
The pressure on Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskær is enormous during the day, and injuries to several key players over the past few weeks have not done any better.
After United’s worst league start in 30 years, more and more people are starting to become skeptical of the Solskjær project.
It also hails with questions to club director, Ed Woodward. A couple of weeks ago, he held the annual meeting of the club’s staff. There he defended both the club’s operation, course change and the manager.
– Ole’s visions for United reflect exactly the values the club stands for. We are going to win trophies, we are going to play attacking football and we are going to give the youth opportunities, Woodward should have said according to several English newspapers, including The Guardian.
He also defended the club’s transition window, where the offensive stars Alexis Sánchez and Romelu Lukaku were not replaced. Nor was Ander Herrera not signing a new contract.
– The changes we saw this summer have given us a very young stable. But it’s also stable, with players and a new culture, that serves as a platform for us to build on, Woodward said.
Responded to Woodward support
The club director’s statements were of course also a theme at the Solskær press conference ahead of the big game against Liverpool on Sunday.
– It’s obviously nice. But I talk to Ed all the time, and we’ve always agreed on a plan. We know that decisions have been made that can hurt us in the short term, but which will also strengthen us in the longer term, Solskær said at the press conference.
– We are already planning the next transition windows, and I am sure we will get where we want, the Norwegian continued.
The Gea damage not as bad as that
He was also asked if the United job is simply too big for him. Sunshine hummed lightly before answering the question.
– No, I’ve never felt this job is too big for me. I have faith in myself, my apparatus and what we are trying to achieve.
On the injury front, there was nothing new from what has been known earlier this week. Paul Pogba is definitely out, while there was nothing new about Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. feared
The only positive was that the injury to David de Gea is not as serious as initially thought, although it is doubtful whether the Spaniard will be ready for the Liverpool match.
– I do not expect him to play, but the injury was not as severe as feared. I feared he was out for the next national break, but it looks better, said Solskjær.
