Solskjaer’s farewell message to Man Utd flops: You know we’re better than this!

0

After
almost
three
years
in
charge,
Solskjaer
was
sacked
on
Sunday
(November
21),
the
4-1
defeat
to
Watford
a
result
from
which
there
was
no
coming
back.

It
came
on
the
back
of
excruciating
manhandlings
by
Liverpool
and
Manchester
City
at
Old
Trafford,
with
United
having
now
lost
five
of
their
past
seven
Premier
League
games.

Manchester
United
confirm
Solskjaer
exit
as
Watford
defeat
proves
final
straw

Many
will
consider
the
Norwegian
to
have
been
badly
let
down
by
a
talented
squad,
but
Solskjaer
departed
by
describing
the
players
he
left
behind
as
“top
lads,
top
people…
such
an
enjoyable
bunch
to
work
with”.

He
intends
to
return
to
his
native
Norway
and
spend
time
with
his
family
but
said
he
would
“probably”
return
to
work
in
football.

“I’m
going
to
leave
by
the
front
door,
because
I
think
everyone
knows
I’ve
given
everything
for
this
club,”
Solskjaer
told
United’s
in-house
television
station
MUTV.
“This
club
means
everything
to
me
and
together
we’re
a
good
match,
but
unfortunately
I
couldn’t
get
the
results
we
needed
and
it’s
time
for
me
to
step
aside.”

Solskjaer
said
he
was
“very,
very
proud”
and
“so
honoured
and
privileged”
to
have
managed
the
club
he
played
for
with
distinction
during
Alex
Ferguson’s
glory
years
as
manager.

“It’s
been
a
ball,
it’s
been
absolutely
enjoyable
from
the
first
to
the
last
minute,”
he
said,
“so
I
have
to
thank
all
the
players
because
since
I
came
in,
they’re
top
lads,
top
people.
Some
have
come,
some
have
gone,
but
all
of
them,
they’ve
been
such
an
enjoyable
bunch
to
work
with.”

Some
players
have
given
Solskjaer
many
headaches
along
the
way,
but
the
emotional
48-year-old
was
not
minded
to
look
at
the
dark
times
as
he
gave
one
last
interview
before
departing.

He
said
he
hoped
he
was
leaving
United
“in
a
better
state
than
when
I
came”
and
has
confidence
the
squad
improved
during
his
tenure.

“I
know
the
foundation
is
there,
I
know
they’re
ready
to
kick
on,
and
I’m
sure
they
will,”
he
said.
“I’m
sure
we’ll
see
them
puff
their
chest
out
and
they’ll
go
on
a
run.

“As
I’ve
said
to
them
this
morning
as
well:
‘Trust
yourselves,
you
know
we’re
better
than
this.'”

Solskjaer’s
side
lost
11-10
on
penalties
to
Villarreal
in
last
season’s
Europa
League
final,
goalkeeper
David
de
Gea
missing
the
final
spot-kick.

Reminded
of
this,
he
repeated
a
familiar
trope
from
his
reign,
that
it
is
“not
always
the
trophies
all
the
time
that
is
the
be-all
and
end-all”.

Doubtless,
Solskjaer
would
have
wanted
to
depart
with
silverware
though,
and
his
inability
to
deliver
that
will
ultimately
mark
his
record
as
United
boss.

He
hopes
United’s
next
manager
can
deliver
better
results.
The
club
are
set
to
make
an
interim
appointment,
with
a
permanent
boss
to
be
named
at
the
end
of
the
season,
or
at
least
that
is
the
stated
plan
for
now.

“I
want
him
to
be
successful,”
Solskjaer
said.
“Hopefully
I’ve
laid
the
foundations
for
that
to
happen
because
I
know
I’m
good
at
what
I’m
doing.
I’m
100
per
cent
sure
to
create
a
football
environment,
that’s
where
I’m
good
at
and
at
some
point,
I’ll
probably
be
back
[working
in
football].”

He
added:
“I
don’t
want
to
pre-empt
anything,
but
the
two
times
I’ve
left
Molde,
they’ve
won
the
league
the
year
after,
so
all
the
best
to
whoever
takes
over

that’s
the
expectation!”
