Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed his new signings for establishing a winning mentality at the club.

The Norwegian claims the new signings are the reason behind the team’s ability to win games and emerge as title contenders.

Speaking about the impact of his signings made last year, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “With Bruno coming in a year ago but also in the summer with Edinson, Alex, Donny, I think they have brought a mentality that has added to us layer by layer.

“Suddenly we start winning games that are tight. Last season we would have had four or five draws compared to the last minute wins, especially the wins away from home.

“You don’t just bring big talents in, you try to do a test of character or do the research as much as you can to have the right types. Because there are always players who think ‘there’s a game next week and I’ll still get my wages.’ That is the mentality we had to get away from.

“They had to come here to push the boundaries, push the levels, have the inner justice that I have spoken about – where they drive it on from the inside. It can’t come just from the outside. I feel I have a dressing room there that is driven to succeed.”

The likes of Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani and the rest of the new signings have been impressive for the club.
