Ole Gunnar ready to get off “rotten apples” in Manchester United team

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has promised to rid the club of any “rotten apples” in the dressing room.

Solskjaer has been in charge of United for the past 18months, initially was on an interim basis before getting the job permanently in March 2019.

Solskjaer’s time at Old Trafford has been largely mixed, though the United still hit a good run of form prior to the coronavirus-enforced shutdown with an 11-games unbeaten run.

As he continues to put his own stamp on the team ahead of his fourth transfer window as United boss, Solskjaer intends to wield the axe when it comes to finding the perfect squad harmony.

“I did feel that I was professional and did feel privileged to play for Manchester United,” he said in an interview with the Shiv Nadar Foundation.

“I wouldn’t be able to look at myself if I didn’t know I’d given everything for my teammates and my manager.”

That’s what I also now look for in players that we buy or we bring up from the youth team.”You have to have a good personality and that you are professional because one rotten apple in the basket will make the others rotten.”

United return to Premier League action with a trip to Tottenham Hotspur on June 19, 14 weeks on from their most recent outing.
