Joshua King believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can be successful at Manchester United but only if he is given time.
The Bournemouth played under Solskjaer when he was still in with the United U23s.
King later departed for Blackburn and then settled down with Bournemouth, scoring 47 goals in 156 appearances. He also netted the winner against the Red Devils earlier this month.
King believes Solskjaer will come good for United only if the board backs him. “He was good, but it was the start of his managerial career,’ he told FourFourTwo. “He was brilliant with me, and helped me. I know him as a person and a manager and have loads of respect for him.
“When he took over United I was very happy for him and his family because I know how much that meant for him as a person – it’s always been his dream. I hope and believe he’ll get United back to where they were, but obviously they need time.”
Marcus Rashford has previously stated how Solskjaer’s coaching was different and more beneficial to him than that of Jose Mourinho’s. The Norwegian was a top forward during his playing days and seems to have had the same impact on Joshua King.
