Watch: Solskjaer tells Nathan Ake, ‘We need a left-footed centre-back’
Despite beating Bournemouth 5-2 on Saturday, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was seemingly impressed by Cherries centre-back Nathan Ake.
Ake joined Bournemouth from Chelsea in a £20million deal in 2017 and has performed consistently well over the past three seasons.
Solskjaer approached the defender at full-time and was quoted by BT Sport as saying: “Good luck. You need a bit of luck from your centre-backs. Just keep going.”
But United fans believe the boss actually said: “We need a left-footed centre-back, so keep going.”
It’ll be interesting to see whether or not United now make a move for the 25-year-old this summer.
