United boss Solskjaer using technology to stay in touch with players

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says technology has enabled him to keep working with his squad during the Premier League's lockdown. 

The former Norway striker insists they're trying to keep things 'business as usual', despite the restrictions on movement due to the COVID-19 pandemic with the players following training programmes at home.

"For the actual job, I keep in touch and communicate with the staff and the players," Solskjaer told Manchester United's official website.

"Of course, I'm used to seeing them every day for hours and hours, so it's different.

"I just keep in touch with them on WhatsApp groups and messages, and we plan for whenever we get back and what kind of sessions for when we do start.

"That's the good thing now with technology and we're lucky in that sense. We can keep in touch and see each other.

"We can send messages and get a reply quickly, and we can do the old-fashioned phone call sometimes and speak just on the phone. So we keep in touch regularly."

The United boss says most of the first-team squad have facilities to maintain their fitness at home, with the league suspended until at least the end of April.

"The players have got individual programmes and they've got their own diets, of course, and this period could be used to work on something special, something specific for them and their roles and tasks.

"I've been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing and the strikers should be working on finishing or their movement.

"Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in."
