Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that he stands by his personality and management methods.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rekindled the war of words with Robin Van Persie after declaring that he likes to take the high road and not get his bitter emotions involved in his management.

Recently, former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie hinted that Solskaer should show frustration more often and take strict actions on his players.

But the Norwegian has insisted that he will do nothing of the sort and has different ways to motivate his squad. Solskjaer also said that he had a different side to his personality than what the cameras made of him.

“There are different ways to motivate and inspire players, and I do not always believe in scaring them to play better. After all, we are in 2020,” Solskjaer told Viasport.

“I like my behavior, my personality, and my values. I stand by them.

“It also works closely with the players, the dialogue is good. There are many people who do not know how it is behind that door in the dressing room. Sometimes you are tough, sometimes you give players a pat on the shoulder.”

“Ed, Joel [Glazer] and those I work with know how I am. Those who know me know how I am away from the cameras.”
