Ole Gunnar Solksjaer told key Man United midfielder is now ‘average’

Fred in for Solskjaer's first home match but Martial misses out

Fred in for Solskjaer's first home match but Martial misses out

Huddersfield beat Mourinho's United at the John Smith's Stadium last season before suffering a 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

Former United hero Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over from Mourinho as interim manager with Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino the big favourite as full-time successor. You watch them on Saturday, and the difference was pathetic, a joke, embarrassing.

All of a sudden Solskjaer is 100 times better than Jose Mourinho as a manager?

"They are grown-ups and they should have been able to go out and express themselves like at Valencia when they had nothing to play for".

Gary Neville though, believes the manager now has the responsibility of gathering information and passing it on to the management so that they can recruit the right players during the end of the season.

Solskjær takes charge of his first United game at Old Trafford on Boxing Day, something it looks as if he still can not quite believe is happening.

The Serbia global moved to Manchester United in a £40m deal from Chelsea FC in the 2017 summer transfer window to bolster Jose Mourinho's options in the middle of the park.

And he is expecting an emotional return.

"You try to keep your emotion in check, because I'm there to do a job", said Solskjær, when asked how he was preparing for the occasion. I'm there to do a job, I've got to be focused.

"Of course. I said this also after the Liverpool game, that we have to take responsibility and do our best to play better and to win games", the Serbian global is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. It looks like not the easiest one but, like always in life and like always in football, every game gives you a chance and we will see what we can produce.
