Coronavirus: Solskjaer tells strikers to work on finishing during Covid-19 lock down
"Hopefully their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in" the Manchester United manager said of his front line.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed how the club is helping the squad train during the coronavirus lockdown. "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," Solskjaer told United's website.
The Norwegian also said he is training at home and all the players must do the same: "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".
Solskjaer wants his Manchester United forwards to work on their finishing or movement during the lockdown, with the team fifth in the Premier League table when the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Solskjaer has been spending his time with his family while remaining in touch with his players and staff.
The Norwegian said it was tough to plan for a return as it remains unknown when, and if, the season will resume.
"For the actual job, I keep in touch and communicate with the staff and the players. Of course, I'm used to seeing them every day for hours and hours, so it's different," Solskjaer said.
"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. But it's such an unknown and we don't really have an idea and are not 100 per cent about when we'll 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."
