SHOTS FIRED FROM OLE! “I’d rather have a hole in the squad than an a**hole.”

Now that’s the way my manager speaks!

Over the course of the past 12-months, Ole has begun to truly put his stamp on the team. From selling players who didn’t fit his vision (i.e. Lukaku, Fellaini, etc.), to bringing in players with the mentality necessary to challenge for titles (Fernandes, Maguire).

In an interview with United We Stand, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:

‘I’d rather have a hole in the squad than an a**hole. Personality is so important. We’re a team in a team environment.

‘You want players to have a bit of ego and edge but they have to be able to adapt.

‘There were things I didn’t like last year, some personal agendas which couldn’t be sorted out until the summer.

‘There will always be players who want to play more in football, but if a team is to be successful then players have to be available at different times.

‘I feel in this group we don’t have one bad apple.’

This summer will be instrumental in showing us where Ole’s rebuild is ultimately headed. More to come!

About Alex 87 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
