Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his under-performing players that he “will be successful” at Manchester United but some of them “won’t be part of that”.
United, who face Manchester City live on Sky Sports on Wednesday, produced a dismal display as they were thrashed by Everton on Sunday.
Solskjaer apologised to supporters after the loss and also struggled to answer when asked if his players care enough, adding: “I will be successful here. There are players here that won’t be part of that.”
He said: “Some of those players are breaking the trust that they’ll have built up over the first two or three months where I’m sure he will have liked what he saw. He’s now seeing the fact that these players are capable of turning the tap on and off.
“I don’t think any of us who have been in football were conned by the first two or three months under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, we welcomed it as Manchester United fans, we thought it was fantastic but knew that players who were capable of downing tools under Jose Mourinho, one of the most successful managers over the last 20 years, were also capable of doing it under anybody else.”
