Manchester United’s interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned around the mood in the club in under a month’s time.
The new boss has won all his five matches in typical Manchester United style and before this weekend’s heavy clash against Tottenham Hotspur, former United defender Danny Higginbotham takes a look at what has Ole done to achieve this at the Theatre of Dreams on Sky Sports studio.
There was never any doubt to the mountain of talent Rashford had. However, under Jose that seemed to have dried up of late and the Englishman was rather fading off. Under Solskjaer however, he is rejuvenated and has created a massive 3.4 chances per game.
2. Attack best form of defence
The old saying that United was “attack, attack. attack”. No matter who the oppositon was, Fergie’s united never stopped having a go at them. Play to win was the motto. Under new bosses Van Gaal and specially Mourinho, these ideologies had gone out of the window. The game was complicated and United suffered from a lack of identity. Solskjaer, one of Fergie’s disciples, has brought back the old mentality that attack is the best form of defence and the only way to win a match is to score more goals than the opposition.
We wish Ole good luck for his first big test against Kane and Co. this weekend.
