Why claims about Solskjaer are laughable, pundit



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

There have been claims that Man United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only been lucky despite proving to the world that he has all it takes to deliver good results at the club.

The former Red Devils forward was asked to take charge of the club on a temporary basis immediately after former manager Jose Mourinho was sacked and has since returned the club back to winning ways.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seen just two defeats across all competitions since picking the job in December last year and most importantly, he has been able to hand hope of a Champions League football to the club against next season.

However, Telegraph writer James Ducer has laughed at the claims, noting that it is possible for a team to win with terrible injuries against Arsenal, Chelsea and Wolves away from home in successive FA Cup games in addition to the defeat of Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League round of 16.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have been drawn against Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona for the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League. It is expected to be a big test for the former attacker but a win at the stage will further stamp his quality as a manager.
