Man Utd manager Solskjaer: Hopefully wives putting in crosses for my strikers!

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has joked that his players' partners can help them practice their finishing at home.

Like all professionals across Europe, United's squad have been forced to train at home as the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc around the world.

And Solskjaer has quipped about how families can help his team improve their game.

"The players have got individual programmes and they've got their own diets, of course, and this period could be used to work on something special, something specific for them and their roles and tasks," Solskjaer told MUTV.

"I've been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing and the strikers should be working on finishing or their movement. Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in."
