“The coach after me [Mourinho] changed to park-the-bus tactics and played on the counter. Now there is another coach who parks the bus and plays on the counter. The main difference between Mourinho and Solskjaer is that Solskjaer is winning.” Louis Van Gaal told BBC.
There was no doubt Man United were off key, as they secured a 2-1 win against Watford in the Premier League weekend fixture. However, Solskjaer seemed more concern with getting the best out of his team, but had a few words regarding the claims from the red devils former manager.
“LVG is entitled to his opinion,” Solskjaer said.
“We’ve been looking at games. Some games we’ve pressed really high and won the ball up there and dominated
“He’s probably talking more about the PSG game [the second leg of the Champions League last 16, which United won 3-1 in Paris], which was a game that we had to defend really well in the circumstances and counter-attack.
“It’s about where you win the ball. You want to defend to win the ball to go forward. You have to win the ball to attack and for me there’s two ways.
“Can you attack quickly like we did [against Watford], why not? As long as your intention is, when you win the ball, to attack.”
