Ola Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to Mauricio Pochettino's top four remark

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists his side want to win trophies after Pochettino's top four remark

Tottenham suffered an early exit from the FA Cup when they were beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace.

First half goals from Connor Wickham and Andros Townsend saw Spurs knocked out from the competition.

Mauricio Pochettino caused a stir in the aftermath by claiming that finishing in the top four was more important than winning a trophy.

“Again we're going to have the debate whether a trophy will take the club to the next level," he said, per Goal.

“I don't agree with it. It only builds your ego. The most important thing for Tottenham right now is to always be in the top four.”

But what does Ole Gunnar Solskjaer think?

The Norwegian manager was asked what he made of Pochettino's comments in his press conference before Manchester United's game with Burnley.

And it's fair to say that he disagreed.

“If you win trophies, that’s a fantastic day for everyone in the club, the best time of your life, because you never know when the next one is going to come,” Solskjaer said, per the Telegraph.

Solskjaer thinks just a top four finish is not good enough for Man United

He then recalled what Sir Alex Ferguson 'always said'.

“The [former] manager [Sir Alex Ferguson] always said, ‘Enjoy this, whatever trophy you win, you have just got to enjoy it’.

“I am not here to discuss what Pochettino says and what other managers say. I am just saying that at this club, we are looking to win trophies. We are about winning trophies, of course we are. We’re going to try to win the FA Cup.

“We’ve got the Champions League, we’ve got the FA Cup, we can’t just say top four and that’s it.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side can still win three trophies this season

"We’ve got to look if we can win something this year and, as I’ve said, I go into every single game as a Man United manager thinking we can win this game.

“To be top four, that’s not the dream. We’re Man United, you should always aim to win the league. We can’t do that this year but we’ve just got to look forward to that again because we have to get back to that.

"We are sixth so we are a way behind the top teams but we are challenging to be top three at the moment.”

It seems Solskjaer has a lot more ambition than Pochettino has.
