Munich crash: Solskjaer wants Man United to honour victims with win over Everton
Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged his players to put on a fitting performance and honour the Munich air disaster victims with a win against Everton.
“It is important we put on a fitting performance and hopefully we can honour them with the result,” he said.
He recalled that it is the fourth time the game is played on the actual anniversary of the crash.
Solskjaer explained that new players are always educated about the disaster and the importance of the anniversary each year.
He said: “It’s such an important part of the history of our club and we have spoken to the players who come into the club, who’ve not been here, and are part of this anniversary.
“It’s a big day for everyone and has always been an emotional one.
“Hopefully we can put a team out that shows the Manchester United spirit.”
Speaking on the form of his team, the manager said consistency is vital. “We’ve done really well away from home and bounced back after the Sheffield United defeat.
“So we are ready to kick on and get some momentum. If we get the consistency and morale and confidence up, who knows?
“It’s about doing the right things and creating good habits every day on the training pitch.”
The game will be Solskjaer’s 100th as a Premier League manager, including his spell at Cardiff, and he admits he’s a very different coach now to the one that oversaw the Bluebirds’ relegation in 2014.
