When asked about Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed his delight at the appointment before sympathizing with Pochettino who lost his job after five years plus in North London.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer further said that the focus will shift from him to Jose Mourinho and that he’ll be a relieved man as a result.
He has been under pressure after the poor start recorded by Manchester United in the Premier League but things have picked up in recent games with two wins from the last three matches.
As a matter of fact, Manchester United have won six and lost one of their last seven games in all competitions (Premier League, Carabao Cup and the Europa League).
