Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pinpoints Manchester United’s obvious weakness

After the sacking of Jose Mourino, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has become the caretaker at Manchester United.

Under Solskjaer, Manchester United has managed to win all their games: 5-1 against Cardiff City, 3-1 against Huddersfield and 4-1 against Bournemouth.

United scores a lot but also concedes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has pointed out Manchester United’s main problem.

The coach wants his Manchester United players to stop conceding goals from set pieces.

“We need to keep clean sheets,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. (via TEAMtalk)

“We have not done that so far so we know there are loads of things we need to work on. But this is the way we want to see ourselves attacking. We’ve conceded three goals from three set pieces.

“(Bournemouth’s goal) came from the one chance they had. We don’t concede too many chances in open play and that is great, but we have got to concentrate.

“My explanation might be, 3-0 up, game won, settle down and then a lack of concentration for one little second, and that’s enough. We saw it (from the sidelines) that they were going to do that but it’s difficult to shout the instructions.

“It was easier back home (in Norway). They would hear me there.”
