Ole Gunnar Solskjaer questioned the desire and commitment of his Manchester United players after they were thrashed 4-0 by Everton on Sunday.
The defeat at Goodison Park was their fifth successive loss away from home in all competitions for the first time since 1981 and Solskjaer hinted there will be changes in personnel over the summer
“If you want to play at this club, it has to mean more,” he said.
“I want my team to be the hardest working team in the league. That is what we were under Sir Alex, that’s what we’ve always been.
“No matter how much talent you have got, you run more than anyone. We know our fitness is nowhere near good enough but we have to stick together as a team”.
“You can’t change your whole squad. One step at a time.
“I am going to be successful here and there are players who won’t be part of that successful team but many of these do have it.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer struggles to answer when asked if his players care enough after their 4-0 Everton drubbing but insists he will eventually succeed as Man Utd boss
Asked whether his players were hurting after such a heavy defeat, Solskjaer added: “I don’t know.
“You have got to ask them. I have asked them, you’re not going to get the answer from me.”
