Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done a fantastic job since replacing Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
The interim manager’s side may merely have faced relegation-threatened clubs like Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town so far, but there’s no denying the fact that his team has played with a renewed swagger and passion that was entirely missing under the Portuguese.
Further, the Norwegian’s tactics have also seen the return of free-flowing attacking football – something that Old Trafford has barely witnessed since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Despite these positives, the Mancunian giants are nevertheless expected to part ways with Solskjaer once his 6-month interim spell comes to an end, and the time to bring in the permanent managerial candidate arrives.
In the meantime, Manchester United‘s legendary super-sub is expected to steady the ship and resolve the issues within the squad, and if reports are to be believed, he has begun that mission splendidly.
According to The Telegraph, Solskjaer has taken up a special approach to deal with each and every player from the roster, and it has been received as a breath of fresh air – something completely different from Mourinho’s negative and publicly critical methods.
The report reveals: “Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been making a point of speaking individually with as many players as possible as he bids to interject some positivity into a dressing room that had become tired of being publicly castigated by Mourinho.
“Solskjaer said Pogba had particularly enjoyed those discussions – the pair already knew each other from the Norwegian’s time working with the academy and reserves – and wants the player to enjoy his football as much as possible.”
A phenomenal job so far by the 45-year-old, as he plays his role in helping the Red Devils return to the top of English football.
