Solskjaer urges dropped Man United stars to ‘help the team’ from the bench

Manchester United don’t have room for sulkers as they try to revive their season, says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The United boss has been forced to leave out high-profile players like Paul Pogba

Jadon Sancho in recent games in an attempt to arrest his team’s early-season slump.

Solskjaer praised the attitude of ‘most’ of the players who have found themselves out of the team

However, urged them to take their opportunities when they arrive.

United switched to a 5-3-2 formation for Saturday’s win at Tottenham

Which meant leaving out a number of forwards as Solskjaer opted to partner Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

The Norwegian wouldn’t be drawn on his tactics for United’s Group F tie away to Atalanta UCL on Tuesday night

But called on his players to support each other wherever possible.

‘When you’re at a place like this, we’ve got so many players and we don’t have time for anyone to sulk or not give energy to the team,’ he said.

‘If you’re not in the starting XI, you’re there to support your teammates. You come on and do your best when you come on”

“If you don’t come on, then what’s the single most important thing you can do to help the team?”

“And the attitude (at Tottenham) was spot on”

‘Yeah, I understand players want to play and nobody is happy when they don’t play”

“But the squad morale has been really good and it has to be really good”

“It can’t be that we’ve done one game now and then everyone is thinking about themselves, it’s a team before any individual”

In September, Solskjaer brushed off an incident involving Donny van de Beek when the Dutchman responded to being left on the bench in the win over Villarreal by hurling his chewing gum into the technical area.
