Manchester United Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
By: Trevor Cissell
So you probably know by now that Mourinho's tenure at United has come to an end and that club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær has been appointed caretaker manager until the end of this season. While many united fans had mixed feelings about Mourinho's abrupt departure, Ole's introduction seems to have rejuvenated the players.
In the 2 games since the news struck the footballing world, Manchester United have scored 8 goals. Beating Cardiff city 5-1 (first time the club had scored 5 goals in a game since Sir Alex's final match in 2013) And knocking off Huddersfield town 3-1.
Ole's philosophy of letting the team play free, express themselves, and attack with creativity seems to have brought new life to the players on the field and the atmosphere around old Trafford. Maybe the most important thing for the club is that it seems to have rejuvenated Paul Pogba with Ole going as far as to say they are looking to build a team around the world cup winner. Pogba, who had just 3 goals and 3 assists in 13 premier league games under Mourinho already has 2 goals and 2 assist under Solskjær and is starting to look like the 100-million man they thought they were getting a couple years back.
With almost every United player looking refreshed and relaxed under new management, fans should be excited about the possibility of struggling star players Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez returning to form and leading Manchester United back into the top 4 or at least making them a team that fans around the world love to watch play again.
