Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned some members of his Manchester United squad that they will not be part of his quest for success.
The Red Devils’ boss spoke out after being left fuming by the side’s dismal performance in Sunday’s 4-0 battering at Everton.
Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lucas Digne and Theo Walcott condemned United to a sixth defeat in eight matches in all competitions and leaves them sixth in the Premier League table, two points adrift of Arsenal in fourth.
Solskjaer said: “We have got to apologise to the fans because they were absolutely fantastic and that performance is not good enough for a Man United team. “All the way from me to the players, we know that we let the fans down, we let the club down.
That performance is difficult to describe because it is so bad. “We were beaten on all the things, all the ingredients you need, added to the talent.
There is no place you can hide on the pitch.” Looking ahead, Solskjaer said he wanted United to return to the days of Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure and be “the hardest working team in the league”. And, as a result, the Norwegian suggested that there are a number of players currently in the squad who will have to be replaced to achieve that aim.
He added: “We know our fitness is nowhere near good enough. “But we have to stick together as a team. You can’t change your whole squad.
One step at a time. I am going to be successful here and there are players who won’t be part of that successful team but many of these do have it.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. DOWNLOAD NOW!!!
