Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists ‘the culture IS improving’ at Man United after coasting through to Europa League last-16… with Norwegian determined to banish memories of three semi-final defeats as he targets first trophy at Old Trafford
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels his Manchester United side are ‘so close’ to winning his first trophy as manager because the ‘culture is improving’.
Solskjaer took United to three semi finals last season and emerged on the losing side in all three.
But after coasting past Real Sociedad to reach the last-16 of the Europa League, Solskjaer believes his ‘fantastic’ group are transforming into winners.
‘You remember the defeats more so than the wins. To get the semi-finals in any competition, you’re so close,’ he told BT Sport.
‘We’ve had three of them, we’ve lost one, so this group knows how it feels.
‘We are a group that are very tight together. You come in, your work every day, you have a few setbacks and knocks. We want to go further but when you have failed before you want to do better.
‘The culture is really improving and we’ve got some fantastic players and fantastic coaches.’
