Man Utd boss Solskjaer weighs into Norway row between Lagerback and Sorloth

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has weighed into the Norway row between coach Lars Lagerback and new RB Leipzig striker Alexander Sorloth.

VG reported this week that Lagerback and the former Crystal Palace striker quarreled in a players' meeting during international week which later escalated into a full blown row at a general players' meeting at a hotel in Oslo.

Lagerback later claimed Sorloth had accused the coaching staff of being incompetent, which led to the striker blasting the FA for releasing a press statement with details of the behind-closed-doors meeting.

Asked about the situation, Norwegian great Solskjaer commented yesterday: "I do not want to comment on this case in particular, but a group and a team are like a family, and it is disappointing if things come out of the closet and especially if it is true.

"There is a lot that comes out that is not true, but when it is confirmed from the inside, I am sure that the coaches and management of the national team are disappointed."
