Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Harry Maguire have dismissed Roy Keane’s claim that Manchester United lack leaders.
The former United captain tore into United’s players following their 1-0 loss to Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.
‘Things aren’t going your way and that’s when you need leaders and characters.
‘It’s not that I don’t see enough of them, I don’t any leaders out there. Right through the whole team. From the experienced players. Really really worrying for United.’
But Solskjaer insists he has a ‘strong group of players’ at United and has backed his squad to show a positive response after the loss to Arsenal.
‘Well, Roy has always been outspoken,’ said Solskjaer.
‘I’m very glad I’ve got the players that we have here with us.
‘We’ve got different jobs. Roy’s job is to give his opinion, I will always listen to Roy.
‘But we move on here with a great group of players, a strong group of players, and I’m sure we’ll see a response.’
‘We don’t bring negativity into the place, we stay positive.
‘I can for sure say there’s a lot of leaders in this squad. I’m the captain, I’ve got a lot of leadership around me as well, staff and players. For sure there’s a lot of leaders in this squad.’
