Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he is “hurt” by the results his side have produced this season, but “does not care” what other people have been saying about him or his team.
This came after United returned to winning ways on the road with their first Premier League away win of the season as they beat Norwich 3-1 at Carrow road yesterday.
When asked if he had been affected by the criticism that as been fired his way lately the United boss simple replied;
“I have been hurt by the results; I don't know what has been said.
“I do not care about that, anyone can have their opinion and that is none of my business to comment on, I am not hurting because of what someone says about me.”
The Norwegian’s position at the club as been under scrutiny after United have suffered one of their worst starts to the Premier League in history, with the much-needed victory at the weekend pushing them away from the early season relegation battle were they sat in 15th place, only two points above the bottom three and up into seventh.
Speaking to BBC Sport Solskjaer said;
“The one that need to trust me and the ones that matter, they don't mind,”
The game itself was also only the second time the side had found the net twice in the same game this season, following on from the premier leagues opening weekends 4-0 win over Chelsea.
Midfielder Scott McTominay set them on the way with what was United’s 2000th Premier League goal while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both got themselves on the score sheet late in the game despite the pair both having penalties saved by Norwich keeper Tim Krul in the first half.
Solskjaer then continued to say;
“This had been a good week for us. It started with a decent performance against Liverpool and now two wins away from home. It gives the players confidence and momentum.
“We have missed Anthony, he is a very important player for us, the way we play and today Marcus Rashford was excellent down the sides and in the middle. A great response to missing the penalty, chasing back and scoring.
“The third was a very good goal and a class finish. It is great for Martial to score a goal like that. We could and should have had a few more goals.”
