A couple of months back, it’d be a no brainer to pick Mauricio Pochettino at Manchester United, now however you’d sound weirdly odd not to pick Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United are in all sort of places, and surprisingly not for bad reasons. Ole has vast a restoration spell, and it now seems as if almost anything is possible, well almost anything.
Despite a lack of squad depth, the red devils have managed to survive a difficult few weeks so far, beating Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and now a 4-0 victory over AZ Alkmaar, fielding only three first-team players.
Mauricio Pochettino’s chances of becoming Manchester United’s new manager are diminishing by the day. And at this rate, there is little they can do, other than back the manager.
Solskjaer has always spoken of his long term strategy, but until now very few ever really believed in the Norwegian. Things are finally coming together, and it seems United won’t have to wait too long to challenge once more.
A champions league qualification is believed to be Manchester United’s basic requirement for the season, and at this rate, it seems very much likely they’d make it happen. Despite already trailing by quite some points thanks to a slow start to the season.
Solskjaer will, demand two to three more signings in January, and should be manager reproduce anything similar to what’s he has done with James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire? Then they could be impossible to stop heading into the next half of the season.
Now it’s not a matter of if Mauricio Pochettino can wait on the project as presumed. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t seem like he’s out of ideas yet, in fact in all ramifications this seems like it’s only the beginning of the Norwegian’s long term plan to stay at Manchester United.
