Solskjaer admits Man United players lack ‘confidence’ but insists ‘they are good enough’

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar has admitted that his side are low on confidence, but insists they are good enough to achieve success.

The Old Trafford outfit have made their worst start to a season in 30 years and sit in 14th place in the Premier League table, with nine points from eight games, ahead of today’s clash with arch-rivals Liverpool.

Even more alarming for many Manchester United fans has been the abject nature of their performances and the complete lack of creativity on display.

However, Solskjaer has backed his players to come good and thinks once things start to click in attack results will start to improve.

“Maybe they haven’t really believed they are good enough at times and, with a lack of confidence, you think twice instead of acting on instinct,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference.

“But I know these players are good enough, there are no worries about that. We are just waiting for that to flourish.

“You can see through the coaching that it’s coming. The defensive part, which is giving us a platform to play from, and I know that last bit is going to come because we have players who have that flair, which will come out in the end.”
