Manchester United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer says that his team needs to learn how to adapt to opposition’s style of play every game.
The Reds took an advantage of Real Sociedad defensive set up in the Thursday Europa League putting four goals past the Spanish team.
“You know, every game creates opportunities, it creates problems,” Ole told reporters via video link, in the first half of Friday’s pre-match press conference.
“Teams give you spaces and it’s just a natural thing because the pitch is as big as it is. There are 11 players on each team and some teams give you space behind, some give you it in between, sometimes teams try to press high or press low.”
United have found it hard to break teams like West Ham United and West Brom in recent weeks and the manager claims his side needs to improve.
“We have to learn to adapt to every single game, it’s about learning from every game,” he said. “So, in the last [Premier League] game, for example, West Brom defended deep and it wasn’t good enough from us.
“We knew about the spaces on Thursday so we have to play the game correctly and it’s also about quality, when you create chances to take that last pass or last cross. It’s about getting better and improving all the time.”
