The legendary manager has visited the training more than once in the past few weeks.
It seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is bringing out the old attacking Manchester United. There’s not a single player in Manchester United squad that has not benefited from Ole’s arrival. Ole has helped United get back on track. He has improved every player’s performance. It seems Ole has been taking some few tips from legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson. It’s been revealed how Alex Ferguson is helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Manchester United matches.
Alex Ferguson is helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with his Manchester United team selections ahead of games, it has been reported. The Norwegian has a close relationship with the Red Devils legend having played under him for 11 seasons. And now it seems he is leaning on the 77-year-old for advice. United were in a poor way before Solskjaer took charge, barely recognizable to the team Ferguson left in 2013. But since taking the reigns at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has guided the Red Devils to six straight wins. Attacking football is back and morale appears to be the highest it has been in years
According to the MEN, Ferguson has had more of a say over the past month than many people think. Our friends reported that he has in fact been ‘very, very involved’. A dressing room source also revealed that the Old Trafford legend is helping Solskjaer with certain team picks, player analysis and even sharing his opinions on line-ups. It is understood however that the selections still rest entirely with the caretaker boss. Shortly after getting the job, Solskjaer revealed Ferguson had paid him a visit at Carrington and hinted that he would be open to Scot’s advice. Solskjaer said of Ferguson. “I’ve had him for 15 years. Obviously, he’s influenced me more in those 15 years than he’s done last week, but I keep him informed. He paid us a visit yesterday.”
Ferguson visited United’s training ground once again prior to United’s win over Spurs. He was in the crowd at Wembley to witness the clash.
It seems Sir Alex is heavily involved with what’s going on inside the United dressing room. Also it’s very wise of Ole to turn to his mentor at times when he’s seeking for advice.
