Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Manchester United will approach their match against Tottenham Hotspur with a defensive mind.
Although he thinks attacking would be the better option, he opines that given the quality at Spur’s disposal it would be prudent for them to defend and build attacks from there.
“When you play against a good team you have got to defend. You have to earn the right to win a game of football. We're not going to go gung-ho and be naïve but Manchester United is about attacking the football. We've got to go there and attack the game, we have to win to stand a chance of passing them in the league. We go there to take three points. Walking out at Wembley with a Manchester United shirt on, that brings the best out in quite a few players. Hopefully, we can see that.” Solskjaer told Soccer AM.
Solskjaer said that given the size of a club Man United is, ambitions are always high and that they will work the best way they can and probably surprise many at the end of the season.
“They know they are good players, they are playing for Manchester United. If we all stick together and do our best every day then we might just surprise a few with the way we could end the season,” the Norwegian added.
“The hunger to improve, the hunger to win. To get up the next morning, if you win or lose, to try and improve the club. He is the best ever, I would be stupid to not try and learn from him.” the interim boss explained
