How Solskjaer is correcting Van Gaal, Mourinho’s mistakes


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to be correcting the mistakes made by former Man United managers, Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho which resulted in their failures and sacks.

The Red Devils boss has been highly criticized because of the negative results hs team have produced, especially in the Premier League but with the win against Everton, calm seems to been restored.

In an opinion piece by Manchester Evening News writer Dominic Booth, he noted that fans, journalists, and pundits all have the rights to expect more from the current Man United team, stating that most of the supporters have gotten used to the successes enjoyed during the reigns of former boss Alex Ferguson and will struggle to accept the inconsistency that they see now.

Dominic Booth stated that under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there is a bigger mentality in the Man United team and these are positive signs that the team is doing something that was never done under the two managers mentioned earlier.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been a nice man to the fans, Dominic Booth hinted that aside from the negative results, the fans are pleased with the manager, more than Jose Mourinho which makes them earlier cheer up after the Everton defeat.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has complained about the tight schedule of the Premier League fixtures, insisting that the teams have been set up to fail because they are unable to help the players with some rest.

Man United lost three players – Luke Shaw, Victor Lindelof, and Marcus Rashford to injuries against Everton and that has been blamed on the rushed fixtures so far.

The Premier League has played only eight of its fixtures which means they have about 30 more to go and most top teams are already complaining while they have many more games to play, including other competitions.
