Amidst the current crisis, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his current  squad members ahead of a proposed Premier League come-back.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a legend at Old Trafford. He was Sir Alex Ferguson‘s favourite protegé and has now set out on a path to emulate his former boss at Manchester United.

The Red Devils were in real jeopardy when Solskjaer took over the job. Jose Mourinho’s reign promised much but ultimately ended in infamy.

As the caretaker manager Solskjaer boosted the fans’ hopes as the Mancunian club saw an unbeaten run of 12 games across all competitions.

An unforgettable night that saw United beat Paris Saint Germain 3-1 in what was a famous UEFA Champions come-back story at Paris’ Parc des Princes made the club take a decision on Norweigan’s future.

Consequently, they handed Solskajer the permanent job. Since then, the Norwegian’s reign at the club has seen some highs and lows, but more lows than highs.

And the debate ‘whether United were right to give Solskjaer the status of permanent manager’ is still very much moot. The United fanbase has now divided itself into two faction -‘Ole in’ and ‘Ole out.’

Though, as per the current scenario, Manchester United are on an 11-match unbeaten run, and the atmosphere surrounding the clubs seems full of optimism.

As Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ is doing their best to make sure that football returns to English soil sooner than what was initially expected, English clubs, including Manchester United, have started training in small groups.

Speaking on an interview with United We Stand, Solskjaer talked about his journey during the initial months at the club.

He also warned his current squad members, saying that the club would not to tolerate any ‘personal agendas’ anymore.

"“I’d rather have a hole in the squad than an a*****e,”“Personality is so important. We’re a team in a team environment. You want players to have a bit of ego and edge but they have to be able to adapt.“In March 2019, players were physically tired, mentally tired and we had injuries. The players started with negative thinking, whereas now it’s positive thinking.“There were other things I didn’t like last year, some personal agendas which couldn’t be sorted out until the summer.“There will always be players who want to play more in football, but if a team is to be successful then players have to be available at different times.“I feel in this group we don’t have one bad apple.”"

Since Solskjaer arrived at the club, Manchester United has seen the depature of several deadwoods and wrong buys like Marouane Fellaini, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, and Ashley Young. Though, Smalling and Sanchez are currently on loan with AS Roma and Inter Milan respectively.

With summer transfer window edging closer, Solskjaer’s plan will be to sign some new faces to fill the voids left vacant by those departures and strengthen some pivotal areas.
