What Solskjaer told Manchester United players in angry post-West Ham rant

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reported to have laid into his players after the 2-0 defeat away to West Ham at the weekend.

The Red Devils were poor once again as they continued their slow start to the season, and it seems Solskjaer made his feelings known to his players afterwards.

According to the Times, the Norwegian tactician told his squad they were letting the club down and not playing to the high standards required at the club.

This sounds like a strong response to a poor result and it remains to be seen if Man Utd’s players can take the criticism on board and improve.

Despite getting off to such a fine start when he initially came in as interim manager, Solskjaer’s results have been very poor since he landed the job permanently.
