Solskjaer hints attitude is everything as he plans Man United overhaul

Manchester United
manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists attitude is everything as he plans a squad overhaul this summer.
Solskjaer is looking to bring in plenty of fresh faces, as well as sending some on their way after a terrible end to the season which left United languishing in sixth place in the Premier League
United ended their campaign with a harrowing 2-0 home defeat against already-relegated Cardiff, with Solskjaer being left frustrated
with the attitude of some of his players.
Big-name players such as Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba have been heavily linked with moves away from Old Trafford following poor and inconsistent performances and their worrying displays may change the calibre of players they sign in the future.
On Thursday as he looks to delve into the summer transfer market, Solskjaer elaborated that he is focusing on bringing in players that already have that winning mentality that fit into the United way.
'We've touched upon it [before],' the Norwegian told MUTV
. 'We've tried to educate our players and our kids to be proper people. In my years, the best players have always been the best people.
'You have to have that value system – do you say that? A certain kind of attitude about you to make a Manchester United player.
'You have got to have qualities and our fans want to see exciting players. We want to get up from our seats. You see defenders who defend, like that's their life, that's the most important thing.
'When we go to press with Jesse [Lingard] and Marcus [Rashford], in the games against Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Chelsea, when we start these games, our fans clap a striker making a tackle.
'That's the way it's been and in our culture. You have to have that work ethic and we're scouting the market trying to find the right ones.'
United will be playing Europa League football next season after their sixth-place finish in the top-flight.   
Solskjaer knows he needs to act quick in order to prepare properly for next season.
Plans for next season may also need to be altered should Watford find a way to beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday. 
Should Watford win the FA Cup, United would have to start the Europa League in the second round of qualifying.
