Solskjaer wants Manchester United to be more ‘clinical’

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his side to be more ‘clinical’ in front of goal this season.

United have won all five of their pre-season fixtures so far this summer, the latest, a 1-0 win over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s hometown club, Norwegian side Kristiansund in Oslo.

Juan Mata’s late penalty sealed the win, though having seen his side waste a host of opportunities, Solskjaer has called for his side to develop a ruthless streak.

“I’ve said before in press conferences that we need to be more clinical. That’s where you win games,” Solskjaer told the media after the game.

“I think we’re looking solid at the back. They had a great chance early in the second half and we should have done better.

“We’re going to keep working, keep improving, keep making the relationships between the players and the patterns work even better.

“It’s not a concern but it’s something we’re going to have to improve on.”
