Solskjaer is trying to become Ferguson

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is following the footsteps of sir Alex Ferguson.

Solskjaer came to the ruins of Manchester United, left after Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese built a decent side by names, but their game was far from best, as it was based on defensive tactics of the Special One.

After the Norwegian’s arrival, Man Utd got better and results improved, new players came in person of Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, who immediately became an integral part of the squad. Even Ighalo, taken because of Marcus Rashford’s injury, scores. Ole Gunnar is trying to build an attacking team and by far he has been successful at that. The results improve and a picture of the game is seen. At the same time, he is repeating the style of Old Trafford legend Alex Ferguson with his statements,

“There must be competition for places in the line-up at Manchester United. If a footballer thinks that he has divine right to play in every match, that he performs so well that the club will not look for his replacement, then he is at the wrong club.

I myself was a forward here for a long time. Teddy Sheringham, Dwight Yorke, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney came. We always try to become better. And if the players do not progress, we can look at another footballer to become better, because the team should become better.”

In many ways this reminds of the club of Dynamo hearts of the Kyiv team. The management there after Semin and Gazzayev invited only Oleh Blokhin, Serhiy Rebrov, Alyaksandr Khatskevich and Oleksiy Mykhaylychenko, who is managing right now. By the style of play of his team, Solksjaer remind Rebrov more than others, as with him Man United began moving well and this brings result. Whereas he is fixed on history like Oleh Blokhin and uses it everywhere.

Therefore, Solskjaer is fine as a coach, but as a mentor he has to learn a lot not to remain mentally in the 1999 Champions League final.
