Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes they have Alex Ferguson Managerial Faith
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with all his first three matches ended up with confidence wins as the United Manager.
Now Ole Gunnar believes, him and his team believes they’ve got United formal and legendary Boss Managerial Faith
Of course, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has enjoyed a strong start to life back at United since being installed as caretaker manager, replacing the sacked Jose Mourinho.
Some fans argue United have not played with such freedom and attacking sharpness since the immensely successful Ferguson brought an end to his 26-and-a-half-year tenure in 2013.
The shadow of Ferguson has loomed large during the respective reigns of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho
But there is a more familiar look to those leading United at the moment, with Solskjaer joined by Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Mark Dempsey.
“I’ve had him [as a direct influence] for 15 years, so obviously he’s influenced me in the 15 years before [more] than he has in the last week,” Solskjaer told reporters.
“But obviously I do keep him informed, and he did pay us a visit. I think he enjoyed his time on the training ground, and we had a nice few chats, us and the staff.
“He encouraged us, he knows that we – the staff I’ve got – are Manchester United through and through.
“He knows that we will do whatever we can, up until the last second we’re here, for us and Manchester United to do the best we can.”
Despite Solskjaer’s strong start, some pundits have been keen to temper the excitement
Pointing out that his three opponents – Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth – have been modest.
The Norwegian – whose only previously Premier League managerial experience came in an ill-fated spell at Cardiff
Accepts he has no idea if he truly belongs at United’s level, but he is adamant his familiarity with the club counts for something.
Because they are all Manchester United Through Through and deep down, Ole Gunnar confidently believes they have Ferguson Managerial Faith.
It’s pretty amazing seeing that Manchester United have won all three games under Solskjaer’s guidance
And if course, according to records, scoring 12 goals in the process, but perhaps the biggest difference is the free-flowing, attacking football on display
