Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fully supportive of Manchester United's coaching staff and believes they are the best people to help the team progress.

During a press conference to preview Wednesday’s big Champions League game against Atalanta, the manager received several questions regarding Saturday’s disappointing 4-2 defeat to Leicester City and the aftermath.

When asked whether he felt the recent scrutiny of the coaches was deserved, Solskjaer was unequivocal in his reply.

"Every team will go through a patchy period and we're in one now," he admitted.

"The form is poor, we know that, we hold our hands up and we know we need to improve. Every team will go through that every year. We've gone through it [before] and come through stronger.

"As I’ve said so many times, the coaching staff that we've got here are absolutely amazing. The attention to detail, the sessions they put on, the preparation that we have here.

"I don't think I could ask for better staff."

Ole praised the collective job the staff have been doing and suggested that, win or lose, everyone - the coaches, the players and himself - will stick together.

"They're good people, good Man United people, with one intention in mind and that’s to improve the team and help the players, help the team grow," he added.

"Of course, we go through difficult times together. We've spoken as a group, as a team about what we need to do, and hopefully the reaction will come tomorrow."
