Solskjaer Sends Out Message To United Board Following Champions League Knockout


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes a significant change of attitude is required in all areas of the football club in order for the Red Devils to reach the top echelons of European football once again.

United lost 3-0 to Barcelona in the Champions League last night, losing 4-0 in aggregate in the quarter-final tie, and Solskjaer thinks a massive rebuilding job is required.

In addition to improvement in the coaching setup, the Norwegian sent out a message to the United board, indicating that the squad needs improvement in order to compete at the highest level:

“We need to create an environment of having a top class attitude and world-class attitude every single day. We’ve got good players to work with and done really well to get to the quarters and challenge for top four.”

“But, as I said, we’ve got a rebuilding job but it starts with the coaches and players, and with one or two additions.”

Reports have suggested that Solskjaer will look to recruit at least four players during the summer transfer window, but that number may increase following yesterday’s defeat.

Some pundits have suggested United need a whole new back four, while changes in midfield will also be necessary with the likes of Ander Herrera and Juan Mata having contracts that expire in the summer.
