I’m focused on my job, Solskjaer tells critics

Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted he doesn’t care about the criticisms that are thrown his way in the media every now and then because he’s too focused on doing his job.

The Norwegian has managed to take Manchester United back to the top of English football since assuming office as coach in 2018, as United currently sit second on the league table.

Solskjaer has also returned peace to the dressing room, which seemed to be lacking during the last era, but in spite of the progress, he’s been subjected to harsh comments by the press.

Earlier in the season, when Man United struggled to click into gear, despite not having enough time to prepare ahead of the season, Solskjaer was installed as a favourite to be sacked by the media. But the former striker is still here, and his team look a better side than they were during those days.

And while speaking to Norwegian outlet VG during an interview, Solskjaer said because he knows he’s on the right track, he doesn’t let those harsh comments get to him.

The United boss said, “I know that there has been a lot of criticism and discussions about one thing or another.

“But if you first set a course, then I at least have so much faith in myself that I do not waver too much. I am just focusing on doing my job.”

Man United continue to compete for the FA Cup, Premier League and Europa League, and winning a trophy would be a fitting way to end a good season for the club.
