Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s winning mentality was laid bare following a recent conversation with former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves.
The Red Devils currently occupy second position in the Premier League, though trail leaders Manchester City by ten points.
Solskjaer’s side have been praised in recent weeks for their improved displays in the 2020/21 season, which resulted in an unlikely title challenge being formed.
But the United boss is not satisfied with where his team currently sit and is demanding more from his group of players.
“I saw him in Cheshire the other day and said to him, ‘Up to second’, and he said, ‘Second, that’s not good enough. You’ve got to win trophies’, revealed Hargreaves on BT Sport.
"That’s the mentality. Maybe in the Premier League, they’re not capable of winning that yet this year, but they’ll want to win trophies and I think Ole knows that better than anyone.”
United finished 33 points behind league leaders Liverpool last campaign, despite securing a third-placed finish.
The gulf in class between the sides has been bridged this season, with Jurgen Klopp’s side currently six points adrift of the Red Devils.
This competition offers the chance for the United boss to win a first piece of silverware as manager of the team, something Hargreaves is certain will happen sooner rather than later.
"They’re in a better position than they have been, so I think they’re in a decent position, they just need to find a way to win something. I think they’ll win something this year,” he concluded.
Solskjaer’s men achieved an impressive 4-0 victory against Real Sociedad on Thursday evening, taking full control of their Europa League Round of 32 tie.
