Solskjaer tells Man Utd kids to study these 2 former teammates

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his young players to study the games of two former teammates.

Solskjaer insists working off the ball is crucial to success at United.

“I love to work with teams that play forward, run forward, chase the ball and work harder than the opposition," he said.

“Giggsy and Becks used to do the graveyard shift, running up and down that line.

“They didn't just stand there waiting for the ball to deliver, they worked their socks off.

“When you play for Manchester United, you can't just think 'I'm talented, I'll just do my magic when I get the ball'.

“That's not enough – and it's not going to be good enough if we want to challenge the top two."
