Back in December, Manchester United parted ways with Jose Mourinho and appointed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their caretaker manager. Although the Red Devils have been searching for a ‘big name’ to take over at the club in summer, the Norwegian’s instantaneous success might have changed the board’s plans.
Thus, former Old Trafford hero Ryan Giggs has told the Guardian he can’t think of a better boss to stop the managerial merry-go-round at his beloved United:
“We’ve messed around far too long. When you’ve got someone who knows the club, who is tactically astute, clearly has the players and fans on board,that gives you lots of momentum.
“There will be bumps in the road but most fans imagine what he could do with the money that’s been spent the last few years.
“He studied the game while he had a bad injury and then he coached (the reserves) at the club. So I always thought he had that potential because he knows the game and has that inner steel.”
Under Solskjaer, United have won 10 out of their 12 games in all competitions, once ending up in a draw against Burnley and most recently losing 2-0 to PSG at Old Trafford. The fact that the Red Devils have already established themselves as viable competitors for a top 4 spot only increases Ole’s chances of getting a full-time job at the club.
