Ex-Man Utd boss Solskjaer slams 'SNOWFLAKE' stars who go running to mum and dad and 'wouldn't have survived' in his day | The Sun

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER ripped into 'snowflake' players and claimed they would not have 'survived' in his day.

The former Manchester United manager said when the going gets tough, his Old Trafford stars would go running to their parents.

Solskjaer, 50, insisted that there would be "fights" in the dressing room when he was at the Red Devils.

Before he was a manager working at clubs like Molde – and recommending a young Erling Haaland to United – he gained legendary status at the club as a player.

He spent 11 years at Old Trafford, making 235 appearances in the Premier League and playing alongside some of the club's biggest legends

The Norwegian praised leaders such as Roy Keane and Gary Neville for "shaking up" the team after a bad game, something that he argued was needed.

Solskjaer said: "The lads in that dressing room were fantastic.

"Keano was the leader, the one everyone looked up to.

"Gary (Neville) is still the busiest back then as well.

"Winners, who hated losing. They had a few fights, like you should do, after bad games.

"Not many of today's lot would have survived in that dressing room."

Solskjaer was recently praised by former team-mate Dwight Yorke who suggested that Erik Ten Hag has not been a massive improvement on him despite the perception of the club changing.

The former striker pointed out the Red Devils have lost more league games this season (nine) than in either of Solskjaer's full terms in charge (eight in 2019-20 and six in 2020-21).
