Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now called for a while to transform Manchester Uniteds fortunes after defeat at Newcastle left him with abig, uphill challenge of finishing in the top four.
United succumbed to some second-half attack from Premier League debutant Matty Longstaff in St. James Park as their winless off album stretched to a dismal 11 games.
A defeat of the year has left United 12th in the table with just eight points from their eight matches in their worst start to a year in 30 years – and – Solskjaer dreading objectives for the campaign may already be out of reach.
We have given ourselves a large, large stern challenge to get one of the top four but it is tight and we need to get a rush together, he told Sky Sports.
Itll take however long it might need to take. It is a journey weve started on and the civilization is slowly getting there. Were getting there although I cant offer you some time.
We have come together and talked about the way we are going. You wont ever get to your destination if you operate on sunny days. We will have today, but we know where we would like to get to.
The start of the seasons global rest means United are not in action until live on Sky Sports Premier League.
For Solskjaer that the intermission provides some much needed time for reflection about the season and also an chance to work on some areas of progress.
We do not create enough opportunities to win a game of football, the United boss included. Fortunately for us its currently the international break.
We will sit down, hopefully we will find a few players back, and we will evaluate what has gone over these eight games.
Its my duty. I need to form their heads out. Young boys lacking confidence – they need some assistance from staff and players.
Confidence is a big thing in gamers, and just results and performances will give you confidence.
In the moment, when theres a decision to be made, the players do not do it automatically. Thats what weve already been working on, therefore its the ideal time for your worldwide break.
United goalkeeper David de Gea has echoed Solskjaers call for advancement after labelling the clubs present plight the worst of the spell in Manchester.
A lot of things will need to enhance – everything, the Spaniard told Sky Sports. I really dont know what to say.
Its a hard moment for us. The toughest time since Ive been here. I dont understand why or whats currently occurring.
The group needs to measure up. Thats no excuse although we have some injuries that are huge. Were Manchester United, now we need to keep working hard, fighting and winning matches.
