Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that managing Manchester United has proven to him how much he hates to lose a game.
The Norwegian took over from Jose Mourinho last December and has since been welcomed with ups and downs at the club.
His first season at United came to an end with a home loss to relegated Cardiff City. He however expressed optimism ahead of next season.
“I’ve learned that I don’t like losing. I like winning. We started off fantastically.
“The boys were unbelievable when I came in. We were positive. We won games. The whole group gelled together and I enjoyed winning but I know that football is hard.
“You can’t just expect everything to go that way and the reality hit us. We are in a league with loads of very good teams and, to be at our top (level), we need to be 100 per cent focused.
“We came into some games really, really focused with the full team and I thought that was fantastic.
“Then you learn a lot when you go through tough times and think about ‘who can we build this team around?’ and who we think is going to take the next step because we need to go to the next level,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
