Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologises to Manchester United supporters after Everton thrashing

by Leo Nieboer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologised to Manchester United supporters after they saw their team hammered 4-0 by Everton in the Premier League.

The visitors, who have now lost six games from eight, produced one of the worst performances seen in the post-Ferguson era.

Everton started quicker and with more purpose, racing into a 2-0 lead at the break. Man United, managing just one shot on target all game, were just as awful after half-time and duly conceded another pair of goals.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer was nothing short of speechless following a performance devoid of ambition or skill.

Jose Mourinho was right to turn on this group of players. He may have negotiated the situation poorly, but the basic premise behind his ire was correct: that most of these players lack the mental and technical clout to play for a club of this standard.

One red who was at the Goodison Park summed it up perfectly at half-time. “This lot don’t f***ing want it.”

Forget tactics. Forget top four concerns. Forget the manager and even forget the incompetent board. Put simply, too many of this squad have a pathetic mindset – one which the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool would never allow to exist.

Money needs to be spent in the summer. More importantly, though, there must be a culture change throughout that dressing room.
