Manchester City has taken over Manchester United recently – after Man United being at the top for the last 20 years. So what happened here?
Man United boss Ole Gunnar is looking to defeat Manchester City in their clash against them tonight and a win for them can be crucial for a bump up in the Premier League table.
When asked about City dominating over them lately, Ole explained: “It’s a different era and a different time.
“We are still, in our own heads, one of the biggest clubs in the world but it’s going to take time.
“We have been up and we’ve been down but we’ve always come back.”
“They’ve raised the bar so much,” Solskjaer told reporters. “It’s something to aim for.”
Solskjaer has learnt a lot from Ferguson – when Ferguson was his manager. However, Pep Guardiola has learnt his tactics from the late Barcelona boss Johan Cryuff.
The United manager added: “Pep has had a big influence and, since he took over Barca, I’ve admired his teams.
“You do see one of the best managers ever and you can see where he has taken his wisdom from.
“I had the pleasure of speaking and meeting Johan [Cruyff] back in the day when Jordi [Cruyff, the former Manchester United midfielder] was here and you can see certain similarities.”
