“Paul, he loves his football and I’ve said it many times, my job is to make sure that we get the best out of Paul and Bruno (Fernandes) and all the individuals – all the really good players that we do. have – within a team structure.
“For me, keeping the players at Man United, when you see a good team and get good results, that helps and we want to win things. “

Solskjaer expects Jadon Sancho to follow David Beckham’s lead in dealing with the fallout from his role in a painful summer tournament loss to England.

Solskjaer expects other opposition supporters to be ‘more respectful’ of the pair for their roles in a momentous tournament – and even quoted the famous ‘Man in the Arena’ speech from the former. US President Theodore Roosevelt in support of the players.
But, using a more contemporary example, Solskjaer recalls how former manager Sir Alex Ferguson handled the abuse Beckham suffered from fans on his return from the 1998 World Cup, where his red card against the Argentina helped defeat England.
