Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘turns to sports psychologist to fix his side’s mental block against smaller teams’

SPORT

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly wants a sports psychologist to come in and sort out Manchester United’s mental block against smaller sides in the Premier League.

United have endured a very inconsistent campaign in the Premier League so far – currently sitting fifth, six points off Chelsea with a match in hand as they look to earn their place back in the Champions League.

Frustratingly for United supporters this term, Solskjaer’s side have shown their quality and determination against the ‘Top Six’ – beating Tottenham and Manchester City in the same week while also seeing off Chelsea, but against the rest of the league they have flattered to deceive.

And according to The Sun, Solskjaer wants a sports psychologist to work with his players as he has become sick of his squad turning the style on against the traditional top six but switching off against those battling relegation.

United host Burnley on Wednesday night in the Premier League and Solskjaer will be desperate for his stars to turn it on in their quest for a Champions League spot.

Ahead of the match, Solskjaer has reportedly instructed his staff to find the best sports psychologist to make his squad become flat-track bullies.

The Red Devils have already lost to the likes of Bournemouth, Watford, Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace – while also being held to Aston Villa at home.

Solskjaer will be determined for his stars to capitalise on Chelsea’s 2-2 draw against London rivals Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Victory for United on Wednesday at Old Trafford would put them within striking distance of Chelsea in the race for a top four spot.
