That’s according to former Chelsea defender Scott Minto.
This meant Solskjaer’s side stayed in the hunt for a Premier League top-four place.
The Norwegian took over as manager in December from Jose Mourinho.
But Solskjaer has been criticised for his recent performances.
And Minto, who spent three seasons with the Blues, made a huge claim about the Red Devils boss.
In the clip, host Adam Carruthers asked if the United legend had the character for long-term success.
Minto’s claims come as:
“My question is does he have the tactical nous to go up against Pep, Klopp, [Zinedine] Zidane”
“I think he does have the character,” the former Chelsea man said.
“And I think he understands what Man United is about.
“But let’s be honest.
“United have not been the United I played against for a good few years.
“My question is does he have the tactical nous to go up against Pep, Klopp, [Zinedine] Zidane?
“I’m not sure.”
The 47-year-old did suggest that Solskajer has improved one aspect of his management.
Minto continued: “I think he’s very different from the manager he was at Cardiff.
“There, he was almost too nice and shied away from decisions.
“But that’s not him now.
“He’s wiling and able to make those decisions.
“But time will tell whether he does have that tactical nous to come up against the very best coaches in the world.”
