REVEALED: Solskjaer rapped 'slow, laboured' Man Utd players after FA Cup defeat

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rapped his players after their FA Cup defeat to Wolves.

The Sun says Solskjaer laid into their slow, laboured style of football — which former boss Jose Mourinho was heavily criticised for before being axed in December.

And the Norwegian told his shell-shocked team to use the international break to analyse their own individual performances.

Solskjaer saw the FA Cup as a huge opportunity to lift silverware this season. He had publicly slated their display as “the poorest since I've come here" and a “big step backwards".

Solskjaer demands a slick, counter-attack style — but felt his players took too many touches again in the Cup shocker.
