UCL: I don’t have time for you – Solskjaer slams Man United stars


Manchester United boss, Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted he does not have time for any of his players choosing to sulk over a lack of playing time.

Solskjaer has faced plenty of criticism over his team selections this season with several members of the squad spending more time on the bench than on pitch.

Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly are among the top stars who are finding life difficult under Solskjaer

While the manager didn’t mention any name in particular in his press conference ahead of Man United Champions League clash with Atalanta on Tuesday night, the Norwegian did make his point loud and clear that those wanting to sulk won’t be welcome.

“We don’t have time for anybody to sulk, if you’re not in the starting XI, you are there to support your team-mates.

“The attitude was spot on (vs Spurs). Players want to play, nobody is happy when they don’t. It is the team before any individual.

“When you’ve got a fully fit squad at Man United there’s always going to be good quality players not playing.

“That’s been happening lately. Some players have had to do with a place on the bench and you have to take your opportunities when you get it, and I can’t fault the attitude and motivation also has to come from within.

“That’s always going to happen at Man United players will go through difficult spells when they’re not playing and that’s when their character is revealed and I’m pleased with most of mine,” he said.
