What Solskjaer told Manchester United stars at half-time to inspire Newcastle win

What Solskjaer told Manchester United stars at half-time to inspire Newcastle win

"If you remember my stance on [Xherdan] Shaqiri at the end of last season when he said those words about the players and the situation there, I do think that these situations are worse when a player disrespects".

Bigger tests lie ahead for Solskjaer in his reign as interim manager, but he is delighted with the manner his team have gone about their business.

"He is just trying to make us better and win games". That's the challenge and that's the standard that we're known for.

And Solskjaer, who was known as a prolific scorer from the substitutes' bench himself during his time at Manchester United, was delighted for Lukaku and for his defence who did not concede in a match for the first time in his tenure.

DR Congo election: Presidential poll hit by delays
Critics, however, say they doubt the vote will be untarnished by fraud, and that Kabila could continue to rule from the sidelines. The vote gives DR Congo the chance of its first peaceful transfer of power since it gained independence from Belgium in 1960.


"His free kicks, that was what started it against Cardiff, and then he does it again", said Solskjaer. I mentioned how much I would love to see Alexis Sanchez come into the team on Sunday but with the other teams around us now starting to drop points the need to continue winning games is crucial.

It was the Frenchman who momentarily lost control of the ball before Shelvey, rather needlessly, clattered into him to give away a foul 25 yards from the Newcastle goal.

"Jesse played very minute, he has worked really hard, his work rate is phenomenal, but today Juan takes that position". The message is clear and consistent: "in the final third, the accuracy of the final pass, the assist, the final decisions, that is the key if you want to score more goals". "But then we've got Rom, so sometimes he'll play on the right, sometimes on the left, sometimes through the middle, he'll get enough games".
