Manchester United head coach Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer has hit back Fred over Brazilian’s claims that players lack team spirit and have vanity.
Manchester United were in Spain during the winter break, preparing for the key clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
It was surprising to hear such comments from the players, who have been important to the team in recent months, while Scott Mctominay has been out due to an injury.
“This group sticks together, don’t worry about that. I haven’t seen the interview or don’t understand it, I’ve seen him sat there in his kitchen.” Solskjaer said (via Daily Mail)
“Fred knows this group wants to give everything together. I don’t know how to interpret what he said but I’ve got no issues with Fred and no issues at all with the group.” the coach added.
Fred had earlier told the media that the team needs to improve and that couldn’t happen because of some players that have different objectives.
Manchester United and Chelsea will meet on Sunday.
