Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s situation with Manchester United invited a lot of attention, one of whom was Ryan Giggs, who hoped the coach was given a longer chance to realize the development of the Red Devils squad.
In this case, this Manchester United legend is very confident that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can restore the team’s glory. Solskjaer came as a doubtful face and got positive input when replacing Jose Mourinho last season and was given the task of overhauling the squad.
Unfortunately here is a burden that has not been able to be completed by Solskjaer, who claimed not to make much change. It could even be said to be worse than last season. This situation also blew wind that Solskjaer’s position was not safe, and the issue of dismissal also emerged.
This pressure also urged Solskjaer to expel Manchester United from this difficult situation. According to Giggs himself, overhauling the Manchester United squad is not easy because Solskjaer inherited the remaining team from the previous coach.
In this season, Solskjaer can only bring in the three players he wants, they are Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Harry Maguire.
“What has happened to Manchester United in the last four or five years is a mixture of squad from the era of Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, and Jose Mourinho,” Giggs said.
“Ole is trying to restore MU as before, choosing young players with high desires like Dan James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Harry Maguire.”
Less fortunate Solskjaer here is when joined with Liverpool and Manchester City. Then the condition of Manchester United became a victim of comparison, even though Manchester United’s squad Solskjaer just started.
“Here I can say that Solskjaer was unlucky because it was in the era of Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. Klopp is in his fourth year with Liverpool. Pep also confirmed Manchester City for that long. Mauricio Pochettino spent six years at Spurs,” continued Giggs.
“Ole must also be given time. You do need time to form a team to your liking, although in this era it is not easy,” concluded Giggs.
For the time being, Manchester United is ranked 11th with 10 points. Against Newcastle United today could be an answer to the current bad issue about Solskjaer.
