UTD Podcast: Solskjaer's first year as boss
As you will hear in the new UTD Podcast, Ole offers an honest analysis of his first 12 months as manager...
“I have absolutely loved it. I might look 10 years older but that is just the way it is. You absolutely love going into work with these people, with the staff, with the players, it is fantastic. And to know that you have the responsibility to move the club forward is great. “I hate losing so sometimes I can be a bit down, but it is not for the lack of effort. I know the boys, they have great attitudes, the group is moving forward and the culture that is seen here now is miles better than towards the end of last season. “It is natural to me to manage this way, but it all comes down to being moulded and learning all of my management skills from the gaffer. I love giving young players a chance and I love being direct, and going forward when the possibility is there. Yep, we need to be better with controlling and dominating games, but that will come with experience. We have the youngest team in the Premier League. In one way that is fantastic, but in another way that comes with inconsistency. “That is the fine line. If you are 1-0 up and get the second, you know you are going to win the game more or less. So we don't want to take that away from them. Now is about learning the decision about when the slow the game down and when to quicken up. It will come. It is Man United's style to be attacking and we need to win the games in the way that Sir Alex's teams did, and the way the Busby Babes did. We want to win that way. it is not always going to happen but that is what we have to aim for and to strive for, to win in the right style. We have a responsibility and a duty for everyone who wants to come and watch us. We are getting goals now, we are scoring goals.”
