Solksjær believes it’s a blend of numerous things as he clarified of players’ actual turns of events.

He added that with Donny, he’s had a mid year away, he was injured and had his own wellness system and work out regime.

“I think he felt Premier League is unique and he needs to develop that actual fortitude and he’s solid. Still not lost his perseverance and development, so that is excellent.

As for Mason, he is a mix of age because he is simply filling out, he’s as yet a young boy who is still developing. The shared factor is the work they do with the wellness staff here. He has some unfathomable staff who have done it with such countless players.


“I think he felt Premier League is different and he needs to build up that physical strength and he’s looking good. Still not lost his endurance and movement, so that’s very good.

“Mason is a combination of age because he is just filling out, he’s still a young boy. The common denominator is the work they do with the fitness staff here. I’ve got some unbelievable staff. We’ve done it with so many players.

“Cristiano was one of the prime examples how you come in as a kid and get this physical development with the quality of staff that I’ve got and it’s imperative in the Premier League you do have that robustness.

“I don’t want my players to break anyone’s noses but you need to make sure you’re felt out there because you have to effect the opposition as well as just playing nice football.

“We need that to be able to challenge at the top, we can’t be too nice. We can’t have ‘oh it’s another game next week’, it’s every game and every single training it matters. If you want to be successful that’s the discipline you need and hopefully, and it looks like it.

“They’ve had a horrible feeling in their stomach [after the Europa League final], as I have had this summer, because the last game ended the way it did with one penalty. It hurts and it takes time to get over it, at least until the next game. It’s two and a half months ago and it’s horrible.

“If we want to win we all need that discipline and that hunger and the fear of losing you have to have that edge of being afraid of failure. Fear of failure is a good feeling to have.”
