Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has apparently had enough of the bad comments towards him and his Manchester United. The Red Devils have struggled to find a proper form this season and the Norwegian tactician is the main focus of all the criticism.

According to The Mirror, United manager seemed to hit back at his critics with his comments after the Red Devils’ 6-0 win against Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup. Ole picked a strong starting lineup and this certainly paid off at the Red Devils were 5-0 up at halftime; they were too much for the League One outfit.

Mason Greenwood scored the sixth and final goal of the game early in the 56th minute, finishing the job for the Premier League giants.

“We’ve just got to keep together, focus on the next one and get a few wins and then the good times will come back.”

“It wasn’t just the Tranmere people who wanted an upset, there were a lot of others,”

“You can see everyone wanted us to fail but it doesn’t bother me. I can’t be up and down [emotionally]. I’m happy but won’t relax.”

“I think the players, the way they went about the game on that pitch. We played football the way it should be played and it was an exceptional performance at times because that pitch was very, very difficult to play on.”

Now Manchester are preparing to enter a crucial week, in which they’ll face Manchester City and Wolverhampton. After being defeated 3-1 by City in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-finals, United need to show a much better version of themselves if they want to have a chance against their city neighbors.

Against Wolves, they will face a team that can prevent them from finishing in the top six of the table, so you know how big this game will be.
