Man Utd boss Ole Gonnar Solskjaer hailed for 'MIRACLE' but warned over DIABOLICAL signings

Man Utd boss Ole Gonnar Solskjaer hailed for 'MIRACLE' but warned over DIABOLICAL signings

That’s the view of former Red Devils winger Willie Morgan.

Solskjaer oversaw an astounding run of results when he was initially placed in temporary charge of Manchester United.

A 3–1 win at Crystal Palace in February set a club record of eight consecutive away victories in all competitions.

Results have slumped since the ex-striker was handed the Old Trafford hot-seat on a permanent basis.

But Morgan thinks the Norwegian deserves credit for working miracles with players who are not cutting the mustard.

He told Love Sport Radio: “The players are just not good enough: Sanchez, Matic and of course Pogba, but they are not on their own.

“The manager will come good. What he did when he came with the same bunch of players was a miracle. It was a miracle what he did.

“But it was only going to last so long and then he is going to have to change, to get rid of players and bring in new players.

“The players Jose Mourinho brought in were diabolical and he had all the experience in the world.

“He brought in Sanchez who cannot play, he brought in Matic – the tree in my garden is quicker than him. It’s nothing to do with experience.

“The difference between the two managers is Solskjaer was a player and he will look for people who can play, not people he can coach or tell how to play.

“It’s going to take time, it won’t happen overnight but he is the right man and the fact he could play himself will make a huge difference.”
