Solskjaer: Spurs will be a test of character
In our exclusive interview, Ole explains the starting XI and admits he's excited to see more of Mason Greenwood...
Spurs is the biggest test of tour so far. What do you want to see from your boys? “We want to see the same attitude, the intensity. We want to give players a chance to prove themselves, of course, and just building on what we have been working on the whole tour really.” Mason Greenwood was the match-winner against Inter Milan and he gets a chance from the start in an exciting-looking front three… “Well, I think it’s all about giving players a chance, giving minutes of course because we want to get to 11 August with as many players ready for that start [against Chelsea] and Mason is one of them that has taken a chance every time he’s been on the pitch so it’ll be nice to see him against tough opposition.” I know it’s pre-season but you must have had some tough battles against Spurs over the years. I know United as a club have. Are you looking forward to facing them in pre-season? “Yeah, of course you are. But as you say, it’s going to be a test for everyone but it’s also a test of character because we want to win the last game here. We want to see a competitive team, all the players here know that we’ve got a strong squad challenging for places. There might be a player or two that say ‘I want to be a part of that starting XI’.”
