Red Devils will rather be an attacker, says Norwegian Manager.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals his plans for United to play in attacking way.

The Norwegian got off to a winning start as Manchester United manager as he watched the Red Devils thump Cardiff city 5-1.

The Norwegian says attacking philosophy is in the walls of Manchester United and that he has every intention of making his side play that way.

Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford all played brilliantly against Cardiff city.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer plans to unleash the pace of Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford on opposition defences.




The 1999 treble winner took charge of his first game on Saturday, leading his former side to a 5-1 win.

Under Jose Mourinho, United would often be guilty of sitting back and playing defensive football.

At times the Old Trafford crowd would chant “Attack, Attack, Attack”.

But with Solskjaer now in charge United fans might get what they want.

He reported,  “They [players] have not said anything to me about any handbrake (under Mourinho).

But we spoke in the team meeting about how, when we get one, we want to get two.

When we get two, we want to get three.”

 

He further added, “It’s not always going to happen like it did [at Cardiff]. But you have to try and create chances and grind it out, but it worked and with the blistering pace we have up front I don’t think any team would like to have Martial, Pogba, Lingard and Rashford running at them.

“So why should we stop them? The attacking philosophy is in the walls of Man United.

That’s tradition, that’s history, that’s how we play and want to play.”

 

Author’s take:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already lifted the mood around the club. United are back with the energy and flowing goals as they defeated Cardiff  5-1. It is only one win of course but with this win of United fans rejoiced. It was a most awaited match and  a first of Ole as a boss. Yet more tougher tests in future awaits and it is  interesting how far Ole will take his team.
