What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said about Manchester United’s poor results

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the recent poor results trailing Manchester United’s performances this season are a temporary setback that will soon give way.

Some United players and Solskjaer have been on the receiving end of harsh criticisms from fans and pundits, following the club’s poor form, and particularly for the way they played against Arsenal, and Istanbul Bakasehir.

But Solskjaer, who expressed confidence in his side and crew, talked down talks of a crisis, and backed his team to start doing well again soon.

He said: “If I don’t trust my beliefs and values and my staff’s quality and the players’ quality, who else should?

“I don’t look at one or two results and fall like a house of cards. Yeah, it’s a setback. [But] I think there’s been too much made of not scoring against Arsenal and Chelsea. There was nothing in those two games.

“It’s not long ago we were the best thing since sliced bread, beating Leipzig and PSG. [You get] ups and downs in football. You’ve got to have belief.

“The club has been positive and has shown me their character and leadership. I’m looking to Saturday lunchtime, which is another matter.”

Well, Solskjaer is right about this being only a temporary setback, but he also needs to understand that fans want to see positive results, and anything short will always lead to worry and criticism.
