Solskjaer urges patience with Manchester United's rebuilding project


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finds himself on increasingly shaky ground and the going might be about to get even tougher for Manchester United's embattled manager.

According to The Times, Solskjaer believes six signings are required including a full-back, two central midfielders, a No.10, a winger and a striker. If you asked a group of players now, out of Manchester United and other big teams where would they like to go, United would probably be the last place they'd want to go.

The new scouts will report to United's senior scouting team of Marcel Bout, Jim Lawlor and Simon Wells - and the hope is that they can help the club identify the young talent needed to build a more successful future and return the Red Devils to their glory days. "All my conversations with the club have been positive".

"I'm going to stick to what I've been trusted to do by the club and hopefully that will be good enough, and that they can see what we're doing is right". I thought we had turned that corner. When you decide to let players go it is because of different reasons and some of those we let go were not right for the culture I was trying to build.

"The players just have to be focused, ready".

"He's had a hard spell as well because it's taken so much longer than we thought", said Solskjaer.

Not long ago, the opportunity to sign for Manchester United was an irresistible lure for the world's top players, but their crown has slipped so far that an offer from Old Trafford might now be met with a "thanks - but no thanks".

'It's understandable that supporters sometimes air their frustrations when it's not great on the pitch.

And he believes United should act quickly to get Argentina, and says Solskjaer doesn't have what it takes to change it, while Pochettino is the "perfect fit" to bring success back to Old Trafford. There are ups and downs'. You have got to be stronger mentally.

They continue the Premier League with Saturday's home game against the Wolves, as both teams try to gain a six point lead over the first four.
