Why Man United must hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a permanent deal, Ander Herrera reveals

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has managed to put United back into the Premier League race, after they suddenly veered out of course under Jose Mourinho’s regime.

The manager has won 13 games out of 16 since he took the reins of the outfit in December after Mourinho got the boot.

The Red Devils, though still have a leg out in the top four spot for Champions League qualification next season, have managed to climb over Chelsea and Arsenal to be in fourth. This has been all Solskjaer.

The Norwegian who formerly managed Molde FK has succeeded in lifting that veil of gloom, dissatisfaction, angst, and disappointment that covered fans and players faces under Mourinho’s reign.

Whether he would get the job remains unclear, however should United pull a surprise on Paris Saint-Germain in France in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League tomorrow, the Norwegian may move fewer inches into getting fixed in the role.

Ander Herrera thinks he should be given the shot at the job. The Red Devil told FourFourTwo “if I was sporting director of a club tomorrow, I would sign Ole.”

He added:”Ole has a quality that is difficult to have in football, which is to have the affection of all the players – the players who play and the ones who don’t play as much.”

“I don’t know how he did it, but he had that click with players who can change games. He’s clicked with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.”
