Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United to show a ‘different mentality and attitude’ next season.
United’s dismal end of season form continued with a 2-0 final day defeat to already relegated Cardiff at Old Trafford, with Solskjaer’s side having failed to win in their final six games of the season in all competitions.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing scored twice in a surprise win for Neil Warnock’s side, with Solskjaer urging his players to come back with a different attitude as they look to improve next season.
“Today was not the problem, you can have all the possession and chances you want but we concede easy goals and not score at the other. That is not where our challenge lies, we have a long and hard way to be where we want to be,” Solskjaer told the BBC.
“Mason Greenwood was brilliant, he was our best player by a mile and that says a lot about the kid. He came into the team with a lack of confidence and you can see that has take a total. Not surprised by his performance, we know he is capable of that.
“It will take some time to close in on the top, we finished five or six points behind third, fourth, fifth and that has to be our aim. The top two teams have set a standard higher than before and we have to take up the next challenge.
“The work starts now, everyone has the summer off but we have to come back with a different mentality and different attitude of being a Man United team.
“The ones who played, did well but it was not good enough.”
