According to the Athletic, former Man Utd manager and club legend Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has called out the current crop of players, branding them as “snowflakes”.
At a recent interview, the former Norwegian center-forward spoke about the attitude of the current players in the dressing room and how they wouldn’t have survived at the club back in his era.
Speaking in a recent interview, the former marksman said,
"“The lads in that dressing room were absolutely fantastic. Keano was the leader, the one everyone looked up to. David May was the joker, the clown. Gary (Neville) is still the busiest and was the busiest back then as well. Nicky (Butt) and Giggsy (Ryan Giggs) were the entertainers."
The former treble-winner also spoke the mentality and character of his teammates back in the day and launched a brutal attack on the current crop of players at Manchester United.
"“It was just a fantastic dressing room. Winners, who hated losing. They had a few fights, like you should do, after bad games. You had to shake each other up.“If you do that to the boys now, they will get their dad, or their mum, or their agents… snowflakes. Not many of today’s lot would have survived in that dressing room.”"
The Norwegian’s tenure at the club was nothing short of a period of turbulence with the club handed shocking defeats in arguably one of their worst periods of time in the modern era.
What does the future hold for the former Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer?
Despite his disastrous spell at the club, the former Man Utd forward is keen to resume his role in the dugout elsewhere.
Speaking to the Athletic he said,
"“I’ve got another job in me. If it’s the right chance and exciting enough. There are so many clubs, but I’m not going to work just for the sake of working. It has to be something special, a new culture, or a club that really excites me. Or maybe they will want me back at the club (Manchester United) in some capacity, who knows?"
It remains to be seen how Ole Gunnar Solksjaer does away from the high-pressure job at Manchester United with his last gig ending in failure after being relegated with Cardiff City.
