Solskjaer reveals what Raphael Varane has done to the Manchester United dressing room

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes the presence of Raphael Varane, as well as Cristiano Ronaldo, has had a profound impact on the Manchester United dressing room.

“The more quality you add to the group [then] the more healthy competition and leaders who they look up to,” Solskjaer said.

“I think seeing Raphael and Cristiano coming in, it’s raised everyone’s eyebrows because they are winners, they have won everything there is to win and they put demands on themselves which the young boys, the rest of the team, they look at them and think that is how you stay at the top.

“So it is only going to be good for everyone and there is competition for places, which is great for me to see and [Lingard] did well, Anthony did really well in the build-up for the last goal as well, so I am pleased for everyone who came on.

“We have got loads of good players. Handling the pressure is one of the things that you have to do as a Man United player, expectations and pressure, you’ve got to relish it and embrace it and enjoy it and Cristiano does.

“Rapha is a winner. Jadon is a winner. He has come into the group really well and he enjoys this kind of pressure, but I think when you have got quality players – Mason, Jadon, Jesse coming on, Anthony coming on, Cristiano, Bruno – there will be space for others all the time.”
