Ole Gunnar Solskjær has addressed the dressing room leaks that often plagued his tenure as Manchester United manager at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær spent around three and a half years as Manchester United manager but was eventually sacked due to poor results across several months at and away from Old Trafford.

One issue that plagued Solskjær during his time at United was dressing room leaks. From player feelings to line-ups being released hours before kick-off, it became a big problem at the club.

United spent a lot of time trying to track down and plug the leaks but were unable to do so, and even to this day stories still climb out of the changing rooms.

Speaking recently, Solskjær has explained that although he felt he and his coaching staff had a good relationship with the players, he has explained that one or two “sour” players were responsible for leaks coming out of the club.

“I felt we [coaching staff] had a very good rapport with the players, but there are always one or two in a squad that leak things because they are unhappy,” Solskjær said on the Stick to Football podcast.

“Being a manager, you play a game Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, you sack about 14 players every game and the next morning you have to tell them they have another chance. There are only a certain amount of times you can say, ‘I’ll give you that game, you’ve got a chance’.

“In the end, they go sour, we had a big squad with too many players. If you have too many players, they get unhappy.”
