Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has revealed what his former boss told him many years ago about Manchester United.
Revealing the discussion they had, Solskjaer said Sir Alex Ferguson, “absolutely lambasted,” him, after he got sent off during a game against Newcastle back in 1998.
United were fighting for the Premier League title with eventual champions Arsenal and every point mattered as the campaign neared its conclusion.
Newcastle had come to Old Trafford and were on course for a draw, while United threw bodies forward in search of a goal.
It was then, in the 89th minute, that the visitors broke away with Rob Lee charging down on Raymond van de Gouw’s goal with a clear chance to win the game until Solskjaer’s timely intervention to scythe down his opponent and ensure his team avoided defeat.
Solskjaer was promptly shown a straight red card but had salvaged a point for his side, earning him a standing ovation from the United faithful as he left the field.
Ferguson was not quite impressed, however.
“I think every manager has certain values,” Solskjaer said.
“When I got sent off against Newcastle many years ago, many, many moons ago, I thought I did the right thing for the club and the team.
“And Sir Alex absolutely lambasted me after the game, called me into his office, ‘we don’t win that way at Man Utd’, and I’ve lived by that ever since.
“We want to win in the right manner. Doesn’t matter who we’re playing against, we want to win playing by the book. I’m not saying someone else doesn’t, I’m just saying that I think every manager wants to win in a fair way.”
