Manchester United tactician, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reluctant to receive praise after successfully delivering his team to finish in 3rd place and stepping into the Champions League next season. Instead, Solskjaer just wants him to be criticized.
As is known, the club nicknamed the Red Devils did not play in the European Champions League this season. They only competed in the Europa League, because last season was fifth in the standings.
It doesn’t sound bad, but for a team as big as Manchester United, missing out on the European Champions League is a shame. No wonder, so many parties later cast criticisms on the Red Devils and their coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
But they managed to ensure that next season, the same thing will not be repeated. Yes, Manchester United managed to finish in 3rd place in the Premier League final standings this season after a 2-0 win in the last party against Leicester City.
Thanks to that, the Red Devils will certainly compete in the European Champions League next season. In other words, Solskjaer has succeeded in silencing the criticism that has been directed at him.
But, the interpreter of tactics did not necessarily echo, he instead refused to receive praises, because it would only make him complacent.
“All predictions are that we are in the sixth or seventh position. That’s true. If I am criticized it makes me stronger and more confident in what I do. Please don’t heap prais on me too much, because you can be complacent. That’s what I do,” said Solskjaer as quoted from Sportsmole.
A number of criticisms this season are quite often heard, even not a few from a series of club legends such as Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Roy Keane.
“I believe in what I do and what I have done. We all have different ideas for management and I do it my way. That is the only way I can do it.”
“I have a fantastic staff and the players have believed in this process. Next season with the Champions League not the Europa League will be different,” he said.
