Jesse Lingard has revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can lay down the hammer when he needs to, even though he has a bubbly attitude.
The atmosphere at Old Trafford is ringing with a new happy mood, with the installation of the Norwegian bringing life back to the theatre with his smiles.
United are on a five-game winning streak, but face a tough test against Tottenham later today. And Lingard has stated that Solskjaer dishes it out just like Ferguson.
“He’s got a hairdryer in him,” Lingard told Sky Sports, referencing Fergie’s famous close-quarters motivational talks.
“He’ll put his foot down and tell you how it is. That’s what you need sometimes if a game is going well, you need a pick me up to remind yourself that you are a Man Utd player and you play with pride and passion.
“It’s not all jokes and smiles. We work hard and that’s what he wants. He wants 100 per cent from each player and everybody to know their job on gameday. We’re clued up through the week on what we need to do.”
