Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the quality of players Manchester United is looking to sign

16 May 2019, 11:25

Ahead of the summer transfer window, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has outlined the type of players he is looking to sign.

United posted dismal results in the just-concluded campaign and ended the second successive season without a trophy. The Red Devils also finished outside the top four and will play in the UEFA Europa League next season. After a perfect start to his tenure at Old Trafford, Solskjaer had a poor end to the season that saw them win only two of their last 12 games in all competitions.

In an interview with MUTV, Solskjaer revealed the sort of players he is looking to sign, "We’ve tried to educate our players and our kids to be proper people. In my years, the best players have always been the best people. You have to have that value system – do you say that? A certain kind of attitude about you to make a Manchester United player.

"You have got to have qualities and our fans want to see exciting players. We want to get up from our seats. You see defenders who defend, like that’s their life, that’s the most important thing. When we go to press with Jesse [Lingard] and Marcus [Rashford], in the games against Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Chelsea, when we start these games, our fans clap a striker making a tackle.

"That’s the way it’s been and in our culture. You have to have that work ethic and we’re scouting the market trying to find the right ones."
