Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very much aware of the massive problem he has been tasked to solve at Manchester United, having seen the club in dark days of recent.
The red devils have jumped from one loss to another, as they crashed out of the Champions thanks to a humiliating performance against Barcelona. There after, it was Everton, and most recently Manchester City.
The result sees United outside top four, and while Solskjaer recognises the massive change needed, the manager once again referenced taking a gradual process. While also admitting a few lessons were learnt over the past decade of days.
“The last 10 days have been very very difficult for everyone, an eye-opener,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
“Within ourselves, within the group, the players and the staff, we’ve seen where we are, the reality and there’s a lot of work to be done.”
“You look for positives and you look for answers all the time because you know this is going to take time and you have to take it step by step.
“I said last week you can’t make massive changes and expect it to change overnight. So we have to gradually get to where we want to be.
“We have to take what we do every day, what we do at the club here, how the working week is, how every weekend is.
“We want to get to a team selection where we pick a team where we have the same shape, where we have the same personnel, bar one or two.
“Of course, that’s where we want to get to, as the top teams do now.”
