Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, head coach of Manchester United has talked about the team’s striker Mason Greenwood.
“It’s always a challenge. Any situation is a test. We are talking about the second season syndrome. If you take your eyes off the ball for even a second, the Premier League is relentless,” quotes Solskjaer The Guardian.
“I’ve always said that 99% of effort is 100% failure. And, of course, players who relax a bit in training every day – I’m not saying it’s Mason, I’m saying it for every player if they are going in the wrong direction.”
“I think we’ve got rid of such problems now because the players are aware of my demands on standards and habits, fitness levels and mileage statistics.”
“I review them after every match, there is nothing to hide and I don’t hide that fact either. I want to see players who are capable of outscoring their opponents. It is a requirement. But seeing the skill of some players, you can accept that they run a little less. Not much less, because a player has to be damn good to be rested.”
“Maybe once or twice Cristiano Ronaldo was allowed that when we played together. But at United, it can’t be done more often.”
“Nothing happens by itself. Greenwood scored against West Ham some time ago and we expected him to come back into the game. I am very confident that Mason will play well, scoring and giving away goals.”
