“It’s always been in our culture. You have to have that work ethic and we’re scouting the market, trying to find the right ones.”
Solskjaer acknowledged the big work that has been given to him and promised to do his best towards taking the Club back to its former glory.
“I’m excited by the whole project,” he added. “I know it’s a great responsibility being in charge of this great club. It’s a big responsibility, but the only thing I can promise is I will do it to the best of my ability.
“Keep supporting the team as you’ve always done. Keep believing that when we come back, we’ll give everything to get back to where we belong. Next season, we’ll start afresh and I can’t wait to get it going.”
