Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confident he can turn the corner with United


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still believes he can turn things around as Manchester United manager.

He's under pressure following a poor start to the Premier League season and a shock mid-week Champions League defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir.

The Red Devils are 15th in the English top-flight ahead of their trip to Everton tomorrow.

"Yeah, why wouldn't I be?", the Norwegian coach said when asked if he was confident about being a success at Old Trafford.

"If I don't trust my beliefs and values, my staff's qualities and the quality of my players, who else should?

"I don't look at one or two results and fall like a house of cards. It's a setback, definitely, but I think there's been too much made of not scoring against Arsenal and Chelsea, because there's been more or less nothing in those two games

"It's not long ago that we were the best thing since sliced bread when we beat RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain.

"There's ups and downs in football and that's just the way it has to be and you've got to have that belief in yourself and belief in the players.

"From what I've seen from the boys, they've been very focused since we've come back and are ready to give a response.

"You don't have to be happy to still stay positive. On difficult days in life, you know there will be better ones coming. I know these players well enough and I trust them enough to respond."
