Manchester United has maintained an unbeaten records in premier league, until the ugly defeat by Young boys on Tuesday in their champions league opener campaign.
The manager Ole Solskjaer, regardless of this defeat, still has faith in his boys, as he expects more good results in future matches.
While speaking about their last appearance, he said: “They’re focused of course, a little bit disappointed but not too downbeat. We know it’s a setback and we have to do better, and we’ve got five games to get the 10 to 12 points we need,”
“[It’s] not the start we wanted but we’re a good team that can bounce back again and the group is very good.”
When asked how he felt about the media reports, if he was surprised at all, he said : “No, it doesn’t surprise me. I’ve got my job and we do our job, you tend to in the media get judged by behaviours and outcomes rather than intentions.
“It’s black and white. But we go into the game with good intentions, we make changes with good intentions, go into a tackle and make a pass with good intentions.
“The outcome always decides which headline we’ll see and very, very rarely is the game fantastic or really, really bad, it just hovers about good or not good enough.
“We know the expectations are high and we expect more of ourselves as well, the performance wasn’t up to our standard.”
He further talked about the winning and losing streak of the club, saying that: “I don’t sit here and claim and talk… football is a simple game and it’s about making good decisions and being in a team.
“Sometimes we look too much into all the intricacies – it’s passion, it’s desire, who wants to win the ball? Which one of the strikers has the desire to get on the end of crosses?
“You can talk about all sorts, it looks nice on paper. But when you go out on that pitch, it’s who wants to win, that’s one of the big things. You want winners and I think I’m getting there with my team, team players.”, Ole concluded.
Apparently, he believes that the team under his care, still got alot of prospects.
