Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a positive impact at the club since he was made the interim manager towards the end of last year but it’s his work off the pitch that has slipped under the radar.

His work on the pitch is visible for all to see after his Manchester United team won nine games and drew one of the 10 matches played under him since he replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December.

One of his major contributions off the pitch was preventing in-demand centre back Eric Bailly from leaving the Theatre of Dreams during the just concluded winter transfer window.

The Sun claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer blocked Eric Bailly from leaving the club by assuring the Ivorian international that his future lies at Old Trafford.

The former Espanyol star was the subject of loan transfer interest from clubs like North London giants Arsenal, French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and many more.

Eric Bailly has since returned to the Manchester United lineup after he helped the Red Devils keep a clean sheet at the weekend in a 1-0 away win over Leicester City.

The Ivorian joined Manchester United in the summer of 2016 from Spanish club Villareal in a £30m deal.
