Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that it is not necessary for the players of his team to be friends with each other. The former striker has had the best possible start to his career at Old Trafford and is yet to lose a match as the manager of the Red Devils. he also surpassed the record of the legendary manager Sir Matt Busby by winning five consecutive matches at the very start of his career as the boss of Manchester United.
Speaking to the media during Manchester United’s ongoing training camp in Dubai, Solskjaer said, “I’ve already noticed that they are very well knitted together. It’s a fantastic atmosphere, which is one of the foundations for any team. You don’t have to be best friends. The team spirit is great. We had one or two fights (as a player) but that is just the demand, the standards that you set.”
He added, “If the session ends with a little bit of a quarrel I don’t mind because it means they are winners, they want to improve. If you settle for losing in training you’ll lose when a game when it really matters. There are a couple of aspects with the break: it’s the weather and the downtime the boys can have together.”
