Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told his team Manchester United to get angry about each other prior to competitions that will serve as a barometer for how fast they improve.
The United interim manager has booked this weekend's trip to Tottenham and the FA Cup date with Arsenal as perfect meters for the delectable Champions League doubleheader against Paris Saint-Germain.
Solskjaer – who took his side in a break from warm weather to Dubai, stationed at the five-star One & Only Royal Mirage Arabian Court – encouraged quarrels in training to promote a winning mentality.

& # 39; I've already noticed that they are very well knitted together, "he said. & # 39; It is a fantastic atmosphere, which is one of the foundations for every team.
& # 39; You do not have to be best friends. The team spirit is great.
& # 39; We had one or two fights (as a player) but that is just the question, the standards you set.
& # 39; If the session ends with a little argument, I do not mind because it means that they are winners, they want to improve.
& # 39; If you are satisfied with losing in the training, you lose when a game is really important. There are a number of aspects to the break: it is the weather and downtime that the boys can have together. & # 39;
Solskjaer is hopeful Paul Pogba will prove his suitability to play a role in the match in Tottenham and this week spent a lot of time looking at video material with his stars.
There have been extra team meetings during the break and Solskjaer has been able to concentrate on the details of his five consecutive victories.
& # 39; Here they do not just run away to their children and women, & # 39; Solskjaer added. & # 39; We have enough time for video analysis and some principles in the game.

& # 39; We have longer time on the training field. We sit down and go through things. You learn so much by winning, but when you get tricky games, you learn more about the personalities and how the team deals with different situations. & # 39;
They start on Sunday, with matches against Brighton and Arsenal to follow before they close the month with Burnley at Old Trafford. However, Solskjaer already has Paris-Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League, with the first leg at home on February 12th.
"Tottenham will be difficult, but again, we can make it hard for them," he said. & # 39; They have strengths and weaknesses and so do we.
& # 39; We need that and the cup match against Arsenal before we use PSG. That is the ultimate test.
& # 39; It is not everything and everything, but it is important. It is preparation for the rest of the season and progress. It is a long, tough season. You have to deal with the victories and defeats and setbacks. & # 39;
