Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer echoes Roy Keane comments about disagreements
The outspoken Irishman has been publicly critical of the Red Devils in recent years, citing a number of issues that have contributed to their downfall.
But his former team-mate – and now United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – has echoed the comments he recently made about relishing internal disagreements.
Keane has never been known to shy away from an opinion and recently claimed in his Off The Ball interview that heated disagreements are a “good thing” because of the qualities it shows.
The former United skipper has also said “you don’t win things by having choir boys” in the past.
Solskjaer, who retains a strong relationship with Keane and admits to visiting the 48-year-old, has come out with a similar sentiment prior to United’s game with the Hammers.
He admits to clashing with assistant coaches Michael Carrick, Mike Phelan and Kieran McKenna – but has no issue with the lack of harmony.
“I think we have a very good team of coaches. “We all chip in and I value all of their opinions.
Michael’s got a great knowledge of football and gives me some great insight.
“Of course, we played together and we’ve got the same experience of working under Sir Alex.
“But Michael has also had different managers during his time here and elsewhere, and so he can be a fantastic help to me — and he has been.
“He has helped my integration and helped me understand the changes that have been made at the club in recent years.
“We have our disagreements. Not all the time because we share the same view of the game in many ways.
“We are very similar types, with a very similar football philosophy, so we don’t have many quarrels. It’s the same, whether it’s Michael, Kieran or Mick.”
Solskjaer‘s side have won their last two outings across two different competitions including last weekend’s win over Leicester, but are yet to win on the road.
