Solskjaer seeks to add sports shrink to Man Utd staff

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is seeking to add a sports shrink to his backroom team.

Solskjaer wants to help his side adequately prepare for games against the teams considered weaker than themselves.

The Sun says the under-pressure Solskjaer is taking extra measures to try to ensure his team are mentally prepared for every game by instructing his staff to find him a high-quality sports psychologist to work with his squad.

The team's inconsistency is certainly frustrating for United fans, especially having seen them pick up points against the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester and Chelsea.

Solskjaer will be hoping a change in the players' attitudes will lead to an improvement against the smaller teams on the pitch.
