The Message Ole Gunnar Solskjær Gave Manchester United Players To Boost Morale

The Message Ole Gunnar Solskjær Gave Manchester United Players To Boost Morale

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has turned around Manchester United's fortunes since his appointment as caretaker boss in December.

The 45-year-old Norwegian became the first United manager to win his first six Premier League matches after the club's 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.

How has he done it?

Well, Ander Herrera has revealed that Solskjær had an important message for his players when he arrived at the club.

"Since the first day he arrived, the message has been very clear: this is Manchester United and you have to show that you are Manchester United players," he told the club's website.

"He asked us to show that, and that we want the ball even in the difficult moments in games. I think we have done that.

"Newcastle away, for example, is a really tough atmosphere, they are waiting every year for United to come so they can try to beat us, but I think the team reacted very well in the second half."

The 29-year-old Spanish midfielder, who is out of contract at the end of the season, also said that the club still has their toughest test to face.

While the former Athletic Bilbao star is enjoying Solskjær's undefeated run as manager, Herrera is well aware of the challenge that faces the Red Devils after they suffer their first loss under his leadership.

"It's been very good," he said. "Everyone is happy and he has brought a lot of positivity into the team. He knows what Manchester United means and he wants the players to know that as well.

"We have [seven] wins in a row so we cannot ask for more, but we have to be prudent as we are in the middle of the season with a lot of games to play and we have a really tough schedule in February.

"Our attacking players overall are really enjoying playing close to the opposition box, we are creating a lot of chances and we are being the protagonist team in every game -- so we are really happy.

"But this is only [seven] games and we have to keep the balance right, to keep winning and performing the way we are doing.
