Manchester United is surely very glad having Ole Gunnar Solksjaer as its English club’s caretaker manager. This Norwegian football manager and former player have greatly helped the club to improve during his role.
After parting ways with Jose Mourinho, the Old Trafford hierarchy turned to one of their prior players to help stable the ship. Since Ole’s first appointment, he has done just that and some.
If you’re a bit new in the world of football games, then allow me to dig bit information about this competent Norwegian man.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was a super fan favourite all throughout his playing era. Thanks to his amazing skills to score a vital goal, with the most important victory in the 1996 UCL final. He is even one of the favourites in lay betting sites, with thousands of people craving for his wins.
Ole has cut his teeth in management upon retirement, which enabled him to create a name on his own at the hometown club in Molde. Old Trafford was impressed with his record, winning 6 out of 6 matches – the club and the Manchester United really need him.
Although he lacks the expertise needed to handle a club of the United calibre, Solksjaer still proved that he is the right man for the job. Proofs are the notable improvements in Manchester United after he took over.
What are these improvements we are talking about?
Manchester United now boasts four six wins from six. Thanks to the transformation made by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. It has made some improvements in just a short span of time, and we can expect more improvements while he is still the manager of Manchester United’s club.
- A “happy club” was created
There has been an increased mentality all around the club, from fans attending every game match to players wearing firm confidence and looking to hit goals and scores as possible. The likes of Fred, Nemanja Matic, and Victor Lindelof all looked much better when chosen by Ole.
Each player’s opinions and standpoints have been well-respected. For instance, Pogba said Manchester United must look to attack, attack, and attack in order to win the game. And, that’s exactly what Ole has permitted his players to do.
Unlike Mourinho’s takeover, players are no longer afraid to make mistakes. They are enjoying themselves yet again and are more persistent to take home the bacon.
- The free-flowing attacking football has returned
Football enthusiasts might have already know that United is home of the attacking icons like Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sir Bobby Charlton, and George Best. Thus, in his appointment, Solksjaer decided to bring back the free-flowing attacks.
This game style is now regular in the opposition half. Ole really made a good decision in returning the fullbacks because it allowed numerous players, such as Jesse Lingard, Marcos Rashford, Tony Martial, and Paul Pogba to thrive once again in the field. They are continuously building a notable name on their own.
With Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic in deep midfield, the defence has enough protection to support the attack. The forwards of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer can rove upfield with a peace of mind knowing there are players for counter-attack prevention.
Manchester United had 7 counter attack shots in just 5 Premier League games under the belt of Solksjaer, having only 3 in 17 matches under the name of Mourinho this last season. The club embarks on nearly 20 more sprints for every game than Mourinho’s.
- Every Manchester United player brought out the best in the arena, most especially Paul Pogba
Another crucial improvement during Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s takeover is that each player was able to show and boost their inner skills, allowing them to land on their own rank. Among the players who displayed an excellent gaming record so far is Marcus Rashford and of course, Paulo Pogba.
Marcus Rashford played as a winger one week and then a lone striker afterwards. This man did not disappoint, with Solksjaer giving his all-out support and faith. Rashford possesses what a good striker should have.
Probably one of the most talked about players in Manchester United; Paul Pogba proved his anti-believers that he could make it to the top. And, he is now reaping all the rewards he deserves. Part of his success is the managerial skills of Solksjaer as well as his support.
Upon Ole’s appointment, Pobga has been a man recreated. He returned to his prime best which made Manchester United compensate such megabucks for him. In 6 Premier League matches, he has scored 5 goals and given 5 assists, which comes at an outstanding 0.8 per cent rate for each.
Since getting a role as a caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer asserts Manchester United has a lot of things to work on in spite of the consecutive matches winnings.
