Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opens up and sends Woodward message after Manchester United fans dig in
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United must “stay together” after fans sang anti-Ed Woodward and Glazer family songs in their 4-0 win over Norwich.
Goals from Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and a brace from Marcus Rashford gave United a comfortable 4-0 win at the Theatre of Dreams, but supporters’ focus turned elsewhere with 20 minutes to go in the game and they aimed a series of chants at Woodward, as well as the Glazer family.
They chantes: ‘Ed Woodward is a w****r’ could be heard in sections of the crowd, while there also chants of ‘Build a bonfire, Build a bonfire, Put the Glazer’s on the top, Put Woodward in the middle, And we’ll burn the f*****g lot’.
Asked about the chants, Solskjaer said on the Sky Sports website: “I’m not sure if the players will get it but I noticed,” he said. “As a club, we’ve got to stick together, we’ve got to be united, we are a family.
“I can only say from when I’ve been here I’ve been backed by the owners, I’ve been backed by Ed and they’re supporting me, so for me, make sure they stick together.
“We are in all competitions. We are still in the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup, we’re fifth in the league, still challenging. We’ve improved the position from last season, we’ve got Europa League. They [the supporters] have just got to believe me when I say I feel we are doing loads of good things behind the scenes.”
He also told Sky Sports: “You know, I’ve really got the backing from the owners, from Ed. They know, and I know, that we have resources, if the right one becomes available, if for the right money.
“They’ve been so good with me, so for me it might happen, it might not, it depends if we find the one for the right value, but the backing is there.”
