Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer showcases his instinct for goals in training drills with Lukaku and Pogba.
Ole is going to play for United Legends XI against the Bayern Legend XI on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of treble win. He is going to be joined by Beckham, Scholes and Giggs for the matchup.
Solskjaer shown he still have a instiable appetite for goals says the United third choice goalkeeper Lee Grant. The players were highly impressed by the skills of the manager and his eye for the goals.
Grant himself accepted he has no chance for the some of Ole’s shots at the goal and he left with no choice. He said to manutd.com, “It was the first time I managed to get a glimpse of whether he still had it or not,”.
He goes on to add more about the training session. He added, “We had a shooting session and I was doing some one-on-one work with Romelu [Lukaku] and Paul [Pogba].
“The manager came over and I could see he was limbering up in the corner of my eye. “He got involved and he was still pretty deadly, I have to be honest. He had some bad luck because he kept hitting the same post in the same spot.
Grant goes on to praise Ole more about his touch with the ball and his hunger for the goals, “But the touch was there and the instinct was still there. He is very, very clinical still. He did well and I am looking forward to seeing that game on Sunday.”
It will be interesting to see some of the best player come forward to celebrate the historic moment on Sunday and will hope to see some of the top tier finishing for Solskjaer.
Grant goes on to tell more his love for the club from an early age and the memories of the United treble win. He said, ” I was 16.”
“I was an avid United fan, sat on the sofa, watching the game. I was very despondent throughout the final [when we were losing 1-0], close to tears as I had really been looking forward to that night.
“We had the champagne on ice in the fridge… and we never had champagne in my house! It was a big moment because the treble was on the horizon.
“To get to the back-end of the game and look like we weren’t going to win it was heartbreaking. Then we got a goal and it was bedlam in our house.
“When the final whistle went after we’d got the winner, it was bonkers. I remember flying out of the front door and into the garden with a knee slide! The champagne came out, we were spraying it all over, and everybody up and down the street was aware of the result. It was a great moment.”
Manchester United and every fan is looking forward to the legends matchup on the Sunday and will hoping to get some good memories out of it.
Ole and United will be hoping to get some good omen and signing to get the next season started and challenge for the premier league title next season. It will be interesting to see how the manager and team fare next season and solskjaer may be able to get the best out of his players.
