Manchester United have undergone a major transformation since the sacking of Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils have played attractive football under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, pushing them back into the Top 4.

Players like Paul Pogba and Anthony Mourinho, who were struggling under former managers, have been exceptional, and are contributing on a regular basis.

The Norwegian took up the caretaker role at Manchester United on his arrival, as Ed Woodward continued his search for a new manager. But it seems like the Glazers have made their mind and are set to hand over the permanent role to Solskjaer in the coming weeks.

In a recent interview with FourFourTwo, Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera suggested that he would be ready to appoint Solskjaer immediately if he had the power. The 29-year-old revealed the rare quality the tactician possessed – to care about all players in the squad.


What United Players Think Of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Management Style

“It’s not my business and I respect the decisions of the people that work for the club. All I can say is that if I was sporting director of a club tomorrow, I would sign Ole. But I respect the people that take the decisions and I’m not going to say what they should do,” he told FourFourTwo.

“Ole has a quality that is difficult to have in football, which is to have the affection of all the players – the players who play and the ones who don’t play as much.”

Manchester United have already begun the rebuilding phase, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at its centre.

The 46-year old is preparing a list of targets that he wants to sign in the upcoming summer transfer window, and some players could be shown the door if they fail to impress him by the end of this season.
