Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said one thing he can take from the dismal season with his club is that he hates losing.
Ole took over in December and there was an immediate upturn in fortunes, only for the Reds to falter badly towards the end of the season.
His words to Mutv, “I’ve learned that I don’t like losing,“
“I like winning. We started off fantastically. The boys were unbelievable when I came in. We were positive. We won games. The whole group gelled together and I enjoyed winning but I know that football is hard. You can’t just expect everything to go that way and the reality hit us. We are in a league with loads of very good teams and, to be at our top [level], we need to be 100 per cent focused.
“We came into some games really, really focused with the full team and I thought that was fantastic.Then you learn a lot when you go through tough times and think about who can we build this team around, and who we think is going to take the next step because we need to go to the next level.”
“I’ve always been an optimist,”
“As a striker, you have to be an optimist. Defenders, like keepers, have to be pessimists. I’ve always lived off defenders making mistakes and being positive in my movement, looking for chances to score a goal. I have to say, throughout my life, I’ve always tried to see possibilities in situations – that’s the way I’ve always been.”
