A member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United backroom staff has been taken ill overnight in Australia after a ‘suspected overdose’.

They were rushed to hospital by ambulance with United currently in Perth for their pre-season tour Down Under.

A journalist from Seven News in Perth said on Twitter: “The man in his 50s is in a stable condition after a suspected overdose at Crown Towers.”

A club statement read: “A member of our backroom staff was taken ill overnight and has been sent to hospital by our club doctor for further treatment.

“We request that medical confidentiality is respected.”

The club have confirmed the individual is not Solskjaer or any of his players.

United face Perth Glory in their first pre-season game in Perth on Saturday before facing Leeds next Wednesday.

The Red Devils’ tour then continues in the Far East as they face Inter Milan in Singapore.

United have been training in Perth ahead of Saturday’s fixture at the famous WACA cricket ground in Western Australia.

Solskjaer hosted an open session where a plane carrying a banner trolling United flew over.

It made reference to Liverpool’s six European titles – three more than their fiercest rivals – following the Reds’ triumph against Tottenham in Madrid earlier this year.

Midfielder Juan Mata confirmed Solskjaer has told his players he won’t stand for a repeat of the form that saw them fall away from top-four contention towards the end of last season.

“We had a meeting on the first day in which the manager and the staff spoke about what they expect from us, what they expect from Manchester United players,” said Mata.

“I think that’s the right thing to do. I think we all have to know what we represent, we have to know the level that people expect from us and I think it’s good to do it the first day.

“Since then, they’re trying to help the players, trying to improve in the way they want us to play and it’s all fine so far.



Mata says Solskjaer has laid down the gauntlet

“I would like to say thank you to the fans, because last season was not easy for any of us and for them also.

“I have to say thank you because they helped us in the difficult moments. After that, all I can say is that we’ll try our best to make them proud. We know that we have to improve.

“We have to set ourselves higher standards and demand more from each other if we want to improve.

“We know that from the first day of pre-season and we are determined to improve, to have a better season and to make them proud.”
