Now it’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s turn as he aims a sly dig at Mourinho

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has experienced a record-breaking start as Manchester United manager, appears to have had a dig at his predecessor Jose Mourinho.

When asked about the change now as compared to when Mourinho was in charge, Ole had a simple but compelling answer in store, that certainly got the world talking.

“We played well going forward. Not stupid, square or back passes. That’s not what Man United is about,” the former striker said.

Solskjaer has since become the first United manager in history to win his first six games in charge, claiming five victories in the Premier League and another in the FA Cup. Mourinho was often criticised for his negative tactics, but Solskjaer’s side has impressed with attacking football and scoring 17 goals in his first six games in charge.

“It’s about attacking, about pace, about power. I know we [nodding to Teddy] didn’t have the best of pace but we still attacked.”

It is indicative of how poor United were under Mourinho from an attacking standpoint, and since the arrival of Solskjaer, all that seems to have changed. The Red Devils now look a more complete unit and are suddenly playing with a lot of freedom. United, who have now moved level on points with Arsenal but are still six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, face Brighton & Hove Albion in their next Premier League match.

Fans will hope that their winning run doesn’t end any time soon.

Author’s take

Mourinho has been criticized for his tactics by almost all United fans but now it’s their new Norwegian coach who has taken a swipe at him for bringing United to such a situation. He has emphasized on playing attacking football which is the identity of United. The fans are more involved ever since he has been appointed as new coach.
