Solskjaer’s dressing room reaction suggests Man Utd boss wants more from players

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to not be getting carried away with Manchester United's Champions League qualification – and quickly quashed the celebrations in the dressing room following the 2-0 win against Leicester on Sunday.

The Red Devils' hopes of playing in Europe's elite competition looked slim in January, following a poor run of form which culminated in them being booed off the pitch in a 2-0 home defeat to Burnley.

But their form dramatically improved following the arrival of midfielder Bruno Fernandes, and the victory against the Foxes secured a highly respectable third place finish.

According to Metro there were scenes of jubilation in the away changing room at the King Power Stadium after the game, but this became more subdued following a speech by Solskjaer.

It is alleged that although the Norwegian did praise his players' achievements, he also insisted this would just be the start, and that they should be aiming for even better in the future and should focus on challenging for major honours.

He also implored them to learn from the experience of triumphing in such a high-pressure match and take it into next season.

Solskjaer refused to take too many plaudits after the game, and appears to be taking his achievements very much in his stride.

"All the predictions were sixth or seventh," he said. "That's alright. If I'm getting criticised that makes me stronger and believe more in what I'm doing.

"Please don't praise me too much because you can become complacent. That's just the way I'm made.

"I believe in what I do and what I've been doing. We all have different ideas to management and I do it my way. That's the only way I can do it. I have a fantastic staff and the players have bought into this."
