Man United‘s summer signings will need a certain attitude says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he outlines the kind of players he wants to bring to Old Trafford.
The Norwegian faces a major task of overseeing a major overhaul at the club in the hopes of presenting a more meaningful contention for Champions League spots next season.
He has endured a horrible conclusion to the current season after failing to deliver on the promise he showed in the earlier half of his tenure.
A run of only two wins out eleven has left the Red Devils languishing at the sixth spot and demoting them to the Europa League.
So in order to change the fortunes of the club in quick time, Solskjaer says that Man United’s summer signings will have to possess a right work ethic.
“We’ve touched upon it [before],” Solskjaer said to the MUTV. “We’ve tried to educate our players and our kids to be proper people. In my years, the best players have always been the best people.
”You have to have that value system – do you say that? A certain kind of attitude about you to make a Manchester United player.
“You have got to have qualities and our fans want to see exciting players. We want to get up from our seats. You see defenders who defend, like that’s their life, that’s the most important thing.
Laying down an example for potential Man United’s summer signings, he further went on to add;
”When we go to press with Jesse [Lingard] and Marcus [Rashford], in the games against Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Chelsea, when we start these games, our fans clap a striker making a tackle.
“That’s the way it’s been and in our culture. You have to have that work ethic and we’re scouting the market trying to find the right ones.”
