Simon Jordan slams Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for saying some Manchester United stars rejected interviews

Simon Jordan was not happy with Ole Gunnar for comments he made regarding Manchester United’s stars

Simon Jordan strongly disagreed with the comments made by former Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian manager had a lot to say while on the Stick to Football podcast this week.

He revealed that there were players at the club who ‘leaked’ info along with some who refused to be the captain for certain games. However, it was his comments about the players refusing to do pre-match interviews that rubbed Simon the wrong way.

The English businessman believes that in every club there are players who are not good with the media. So, it was wrong of Ole to put the Red Devils on blast. Let’s take a look at what he had to say while speaking on talkSPORT via Youtube.

“Most football clubs don’t have players that are comfortable with the media”

“That doesn’t make them flawed individuals, it only means that some people are better at it than others”

Simon Jordan added that Ole Gunnar would not want to send a Manchester United player who doesn’t know how to handle the media. So, why would he discredit the players? We think that it was short-sighted of the Norwegian to criticize the Red Devils for refusing pre-match interviews.

Not every player can handle the pressure of an interview. Moreover, we have to take into consideration that these interviews also affect the players’ mental health. So, if a player wants to do then all is well.

However, refusing to interview for any reason is not enough to be criticizing your players. Ole Gunnar has been spending time away from the game to focus on himself and his family.

Hopefully, by the time that he’s ready to return to football he will realise that missing interviews is not an issue.
