Solskjaer Hits Back After Criticism From Van Persie

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that he will not change his style of management following criticism from former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.

After United's 2-0 New Year's Day defeat to Arsenal, Van Persie criticised the Old Trafford manager's demeanour on BT Sport, saying:

"When I listen to Ole, he sounds like a really nice guy. I would like to see him a bit more edgy, a bit more mean at times. It's part of his job as well - just be angry.

"I see him smiling now, after a game like that. This is not the moment to smile."

At a press conference ahead of Saturday's FA Cup tie between Man Utd and Wolves, Solskjaer responded to Van Persie.

"I don't know Robin and Robin doesn't know me," said Solskjaer.


"He probably doesn't have a right to criticise my management style and I won't change.

"Yeah, Robin, he took my number 20 [shirt at Manchester United] and that's probably all he's going to take from me as well."
