“Sometimes there are players whom you have to praise and cajole, but there are other players who need stick more than praise because they can get complacent and lose their concentration.”

Solskjaer spoke about how he deals with players
“It’s pretty simple, but of course, you also need to speak to them, and you need to give them a role that can maximize their qualities. You need to allow them to grow and perform in that role in a way that makes them feel, ‘this is the best possible me’.
“Paul and Luke are two players who, when they play to their best level, are unstoppable at times.”
“There are so many things that you have to take into consideration as a manager when you pick a team. If a player doesn’t feel right, sometimes you’ve just got to sit down and listen to them.
He said that sir Alex was best at that.
