To do well against Manchester United, Jack Grealish has little added motivation, despite being the club’s summer transfer target, believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“I don’t think that’s the position for me to ask about our transition business expectations. We’ve been linked to a lot of successful players and any individual associated with Man United looks at that as a compliment.” Solskjaer said at his press conference.
“There’s no reason for me to think about whether we’ll continue and improve.”
This season for Dean Smith’s team Grealish has been an impressive player and ahead of United’s trip to Villa Park on Thursday night Solskjaer spoke of his challenge, but the Norwegian doesn’t think the trade discussions around Grealish would serve as more incentive for him to put on a successful display.
When questioned whether he felt Grealish was going to treat the game like a trial, Solskjaer said “It is a challenge each time any player plays against Man United. Secondly as Man United is a strong side, but also because the entire world is watching.”
