Man United boss, Olè Gunnar Solskjaer, has lifted the lid on the conversation he had with his predecessor, José Mourinho, before we played Tottenham at Old Trafford this season.

According to the Norwegian tactician, who spoke to United We Stand, Mourinho had a few bad things to say about the Man United dressing room.

In his own words: “We had a chat before the game. I’d not really met him before, only briefly when he was at Chelsea and they played Cardiff. We had a nice chat.

“He was complaining about the away dressing room, the one that he’d changed! There was a positive atmosphere between us – it was good to have him back.”

Olè added he understands how unstable the dressing room can get sometimes, but he doesn’t ever get worried by it.

“I try not to get bogged down with the pressure,” he continued. “You have to be thick-skinned to if you play or manage Man United, and the pressure doesn’t get to me, but anything we do is magnified or scrutinised.”

United won the home game of this fixture 2-1, last December, and will have to keep the momentum going if we are to repeat the feat when we meet again soon, with multiple reports already claiming it may be the curtain raiser when the Premier League season resumes.
